~ My Doula Fees ~
My fees include:
~ all prenatal visits
~ support through labor and birth
~ postpartum visits
~ 24 hour availability 38 weeks - 2 weeks postpartum
 ~~ The fee for these services is $650.00.  A non-refundable deposit of $250.00 is due at the time of signing our contract.  The remaining balance of $400.00 is due two (2) weeks prior to your due date.
~~ I strongly believe that every woman deserves a doula.  That said, if you feel you need a payment option that fits your budget, please contact me.  I am willing to discuss a plan based on your financial needs.
~ helping your birth be a gentle beginning ~
I offer a complimentary interview for us to meet.  At that time you are able to meet me in person and ask me any questions that you may have.
     "So many thanks to Michele for assisting us in a wonderful, positive, and natural childbirth experience.  We wholeheartedly recommend Michele as a doula!  Her presence and knowledge at the birth of our son made it the natural childbirth experience that we were striving for."    ~Amanda & George~
