~ 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.
