Birth Doula and Postpartum Doula Packages
During your free consultation, we will meet at a mutually comfortable location for a casual conversation that usually lasts about an hour. We can talk about your desires for your birth, what my role would be as your doula and any concerns or requests you may presently have. Questions are welcome as this is a great time to see whether I will be a good match for your needs, situation and personality.

Deluxe Postpartum Visit
Sometimes moms need short term, intensive support. A deluxe visit lasts for 5-6 hours. I focus on breastfeeding support and learning throughout the day, discussion and implementation of postpartum habits for faster recovery, belly binding if desired, womb and perineal care, baby soothing techniques, discussion of prevention, symptoms and recovery from postpartum depression, nourishing foods and teas. Clients may also benefit from discussing and feeling deeply heard around their feelings around birth and new motherhood. If clients desire, i can cook a nutritious meal with food on hand for the whole family, tidy up, care for baby or other kids, wash diapers and help organize the house to better suite a new moms needs. This makes a great gift for a mom!
$150, discount available if multiple days purchased

Needing Care and Needing Help Affording it?
I am so grateful to the people who have helped me in times of need, and I do my best to live simply and offer what help I can to others. I am able to offer packages at reduced rates or further tailor them to reduce costs. If you need a doula, and would like to know how to make this affordable, call me. I will support you in identifying your resources to help cover costs (instead of baby shower gifts, for instance, start a doula go-fund-me), and I will also work with you to reduce my prices as much as possible.
