Birth Doula

Initial consultations are always free so that we can see if we are a good fit, if you decide that you would like me to be your birth doula, here is what the full cost includes:

  • Two (2) prenatal visits during which we will discuss your birth plan, go over how I can best support you, and review comfort measures. I will also provide in depth information on babywearing and help get you fitted in the carrier of your choice if babywearing interests you.

  • I will be on-call for your birth from 38 weeks on and support you throughout your labor.

  • Two (2) post-partum visits typically at 4-5 days and again at 2-3 weeks to follow-up with you and answer any questions, offer support, and (if you are interested) provide guidance and assistance with babywearing.

The investment is a $75 as a retainer due when you select me as your doula and $475 due between 36-38 weeks. Discounts are always available for military families and educators. Payment plans and bartering are also options, so if you want doula support but do not think you can afford it please contact me to discuss.

Babywearing

I also offer one-on-one babywearing consultations in your home. The 90 minute session includes an introduction to the various styles of baby carriers, a demonstration of each type of carrier with a discussion of what would work best for your lifestyle, an opportunity for you to try the different carriers, and assistance with finding the carrier that is right for you. The investment is $80. 

If you already have a carrier that you are using but are having trouble getting a comfortable fit. I will happily come to your home to do a carrier fitting. These usually take about 30 minutes and the investment is $25. 

If neither of these options works for you and you have something else in mind, please reach out to me so we can come up with a fitting that would work for you. I am extremely passionate about babywearing and would like to help as many caregivers as possible carry their babies close.
