Doula Services

 

Certification

I have been trained and certified as a birth doula by DONA (Doulas of North America) and I adhere to DONA's Code of Ethics. I am also certified as a Hypno-Doula. I am taking clients expecting babies spring and fall 2010. I am taking some time off late June-mid August to spend with my family.

 

 

   Services

My birth doula package includes:

  • Initial, no-commitment, consultation at any time during your pregnancy to get to know each other and discuss your vision for your birth.
  • $50 discount on my Hypnobabies Childbirth Education Course for mom and birth partner.
  • Two or more prenatal appointments in the 3rd trimester to get further aquainted, write a birth preferences sheet (birth plan), and talk about any fears, concerns, or special needs.
  • I will be on-call to provide support for your baby's birth from 38 weeks until the birth. If you begin labor earlier than 38 weeks I will do everything I can to attend your birth.
  • Care after the birth to help the new family get settled and facilitate breastfeeding.
  • Access to my lending library of pregnancy, birth, baby care, and breastfeeding books, videos, and magazines. 
  • 24hr phone support for questions and concerns.
  • Written birth time line.
  • One or more postpartum visits (including a meal for your family) to answer questions, go over the birth, support breastfeeding, and admire your new baby!

    Pricing

    My doula fee is $450 ($400 for my Hypnobabies students). I        am open to discussing payment plans, reduced fees, and            tradework as well because I believe that every woman/couple     who wants a doula should have one.
