Services and Fee

*****Please note that until March 1st, 2020, I am not able to take on new clients and will be working with repeat clients only.*****

My fee for birth doula services is $900 plus HST.

A deposit of $400 plus HST (i.e. $452) is requested upon signing a letter of agreement. The remainder is due by 38 weeks' gestation. 
I gratefully accept cash, cheques, or e-transfers.

This fee includes:

  • minimum two, 2-hour prenatal meetings, usually in the third trimester
  • unlimited phone, text and email support during pregnancy
  • use of lending library, if desired
  • use of birthing ball, if desired
  • continuous labour support from early labour (by phone) and in person as soon as required
  • use of TENS machine during labour, if desired
  • approximately two hours' immediate postpartum support at place of birth
  • minimum one postpartum meeting (and up to three visits if breastfeeding support is required) 
  • birth story emailed within four weeks of the birth

As A Doula, I Do Not:

  • Perform clinical tasks, such as blood pressure, fetal heart checks, vaginal exams, and others. I am there to provide only physical comfort, emotional support, and information.
  • Make decisions for you. I will help you get the information necessary to make an informed decision. I will also remind you if there is a departure from your birth plan.
  • Speak to the staff on your behalf. I will discuss your concerns with you and suggest options and questions, but you or your partner will speak directly to the clinical staff.
  • Provide a second opinion on any medical findings or recommendations from your care provider.
