"Birth is the epicenter of women's power.”
― Ani DiFranco
My birth doula session base rate is $1700 with a $850 deposit, with the remaining $850 due after birth.
My post partum session rate is $30/hr.
Payment plans available.
I strongly believe doula services should be available to everybody, and so I work using a sliding scale based on each family's financial situation.
pro bono/volunteer services
I work regularly with non-profit and volunteer birthing foundations, and I am passionate about making doula services available to anyone, regardless of circumstance. It is important to me to be sensitive to people's needs.
If you are someone who would like the kind of support a doula offers but have held back from seeking services because of your financial situation, please feel welcome to write me and share your thoughts and where you are. We can talk from there.
