Rates & Services

My services include two prenatal visits at your home (roughly 1-hour visits). Theses meetings are designed to build trust and support between you, your birth partner and myself. During these meetings we will discuss the pregnancy, birth plan, and postpartum care, as well as the doula-client contract and financial plans.

Prenatal Care

        My base service package includes prenatal care, labor support, and a postpartum visit (descriptions below). I also offer the following add-on services:

  • Two hour birth & labor class 

  • Placenta smoothie

  • Postpartum healing kit & additional visit within 24 hours of delivery 

  • Additional in-home postpartum visits 

Each contract will be custom tailored to meet the needs of you and your family. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding my services (including bereavement care) and pricing.

My base package includes continuous physical, emotional and spiritual support throughout early and active labor, and through delivery. I will meet you at your planned place of birth and serve you in whatever way I can (i.e. massage, essential oils, pictures, video, food/drinks). The exact services requested will vary from person to person, and this will be clarified in the birth plan.

My base package includes one postpartum visit at your home. These visits are designed to help relieve some pressure off the new parents. I can provide multiple different services including food/drinks, washing dishes, laundry etc. This will depend on the family and what their desires are.

"The most difficult part of birth is the first year afterwards. It is the year of travail- when the soul of a woman must birth the mother inside her. The emotional labor pains of becoming a mother are far greater than the physical pangs of birth; these are the growing surges of your heart as it pushes out selfishness and fear and makes room for sacrifice and love. It is a private and silent birth of the soul, but it is no less holy than the event of childbirth, perhaps it is even more sacred."
