Doula Services

Care during Covid-19

Due to the Pandemic of Covid 19 you may be wondering how my care may change during your journey into parenthood. Please know that I am following all recommended guidelines and will continue to provide as much face to face support as possible. If the pandemic or other catastrophic event leaves me unable to enter the hospital or I cannot come to your home to provide care because of a shelter in place, I will provide virtual care throughout your pregnancy, labo, and postpartum. Please know that in this way, I am still able to do almost everything I would normally do like reminding you to hydrate, use bathroom, change positions, rest, and giving emotional support. I will also be there to help answer any questions you may have about your care and help you make an informed decision.

My services include:

  • Free consultation to see if we are the right fit (no obligation);
  • Two prenatal appointments (if time permits): these may include birth planning, baby registry help, breathing, comfort measures, teaching your partner how to help you in labor, what to expect before, during and after labor, postpartum, baby wearing, cloth diapering, and breastfeeding;
  • Continuous phone support throughout pregnancy and six weeks after delivery;
  • On call for you starting at 38 weeks (two weeks on either side of EDD);
  • Continuous support throughout your labor;
  • Immediate postpartum care (1-2 hours) to help establish breastfeeding, provide extra support, etc.;
  • One lactation visit (usually done before postpartum visit);
  • One postpartum visit in which we typically go over your birth and any necessary referrals are given.

My fees:

  • The total cost for all my services listed above is $1800.00
