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 Doulamatch.net. 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!)
