Birth Doula

Books are open for 2019: March, April, July, August

It is an honor to be included in birth. It is such a special time in a family’s life and one that I feel so humbled to be a part of. I have been attending births, either as a doula, or as a midwife’s assistant, for over ten years. This work is truly my calling. Once I arrive at the labor, the rest of the world falls away as I work with the mama (and her partner) to help navigate the journey of birth.

My fees include a free initial consult; a back up doula that you will meet prior to your due date (in the rare event I am unable to attend); continuous phone and email support; access to my lending library; 24 hour on-call coverage beginning at 38 weeks until the birth of your baby; and lactation support.

My fee for this service is $1000:

  • 3 prenatal visits, one of which includes meeting your back up doula
  • labor and birth, immediate postpartum
  • 2 postpartum visits
  • 1 prenatal massage

(If you are interested in additional prenatal/postpartum/massage visits, or would like to include the childbirth education class, I can tailor your fee to suit your needs.)

I am available for birthing center/hospital births at Porter, Bennington, Rutland, and select NY hospitals. For home births, I have an hour travel radius that is included in my pricing. If you are interested in speaking about a further distance to your place of birth, please contact me. If payment is a hardship, please contact me for alternatives such as payment plans and partial barters.

Check out my postpartum doula page for care after baby arrives. Birth clients receive a discount on pricing.

Hiring someone to attend to your needs during this sacred time is something that should be thought about. I understand this and have references available that I am happy to share with you.

(In the spirit of women supporting women, please check out There you will find doulas in your area, who are available on your due date. I believe that all women deserve doula support, so check all of us out and find your perfect doula to share this special time with you!)
