*Please let me stress that I believe every family that wants a doula deserves one. If we are a good fit I am very willing to support families who may prefer a payment plan instead of upfront payment or need to work out a trade.*
—- details of specific services outlined on “SERVICES” page —-
- *Advanced Birth* ~2 prenatal visits, a leisurely walk through Armstrong Redwoods or Goat Rock beach, your birth (including photography if desired), 1 postpartum check in, 1 four-hour postpartum care visit [$1350]
*Purely Birth* ~this package does not include any prenatal visits or education, nor any postpartum check ins. It is support purely for your birth. I don’t recommend this package for most families as I think meeting prenatally to discuss your preferences, to have time to get to know each other, and for me to share resources and information with you is very helpful – yet some families have had a lot of other great prenatal care & this package may be sufficient. We will meet for a short consultation and then I will be on call to support you in labor. [$700]
- *Birth Again* ~if you are a repeat client of mine this package is just for you! 1 prenatal visit to recap birth knowledge and to plan for your next experience, your birth (including photography if desired), 1 postpartum check in [$900]
- *Childcare for your labor* ~a consultation in your home to meet your child(ren), tour your home, and sign paperwork. You are encouraged to write out a schedule and instructions that you would like me to follow (as you see necessary). I arrive when you are laboring and stay up to 48hrs. [$700]
See below for adding postpartum care by the hour
As a certified postpartum doula my support will include an initial consultation and specific activities as described on the “services” page. I also offer one on one nannying in your home.
Postpartum and Nanny fees are typically:
$25/hr day time, local, one baby
$30/hr day time, local, multiples
$35/hr overnight, local, one baby
$40/hr overnight, local, multiples
Local = within 25 miles of my home (95446). Families further than 25mi will be charged an additional hour of care to cover travel and related costs.
Visits can be scheduled any time throughout the day or night depending on your needs and my availability. I am also available for long distance travel with families as it fits my birth schedule.
If hired to support your family postpartum, I am very happy to facilitate the encapsulation of your placenta. See more information on placenta encapsulation on the “services” page.
My care does not include deep cleaning (scrubbing, mopping, toilets, washing windows, yard work, etc).
