Just as every pregnancy, birth, and woman differs, so do personalities. Because of this, I offer a complimentary, no-obligation, meet & greet. Typically we will meet at mutually convenient location (ex. local coffee shop). Here you can ask any questions and get to know me a bit. Don't want to hire me? No problem! Simply contact me again if you do and we will go from there.
Prenatal & Labor Support
I currently provide labor support services for the Woodburn, Oregon and surrounding areas. This includes one prenatal visit (two if necessary), on-call support during labor, and one postnatal appointment within the first two weeks after giving birth.
During the first appointment we will discuss every aspect of the upcoming birth. I will work with you and your partner to find out what is important to you to know before giving birth. We will also discuss the risks versus benefits of interventions and I will share coping skills with you. At this time we will also fill out a birth plan.
Once in labor, you will call me and I will meet you wherever you have chosen to give birth. Once there, I will provide continuous support to you all through labor and delivery, and for about an hour after the birth. Within the first two weeks postpartum, I will do a follow up visit at your home. We can then discuss your birth, see how breastfeeding is going, and answer any other questions you may have.
Services are $800.00, with a $350.00 retainer due at the first appointment. (Please note that there is an additional $50.00 charge for those outside of a 20 mile radius.) I truly believe that any woman who wants a doula should be able to have one so the fee may be done on a sliding scale or by bartering if necessary. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

When planning for a new addition, I know that costs can add up quickly. This is why I offer clients a payment plan if necessary. These are things we will discuss at your first appointment, but I like to be transparent and upfront from the beginning. A retainer is due at our first appointment (after your consultation). This is where we go over the contract, what my position is at your birth, what your expectations are, etc. This is often a one or two hour visit at your home. (No need to clean before I arrive! I'm not judging mama.)
The next step is simply keeping in continuous contact, whether by phone call, text or email. I am at your service to answer questions, and be of any assistance I can until I get that exciting phone call. (We may also meet for an additional prenatal visit during this time, if necessary.) After we have made contact and you're in labor, I will have an hour to join you. Once I arrive, I will support you physically and emotionally throughout the entirety of your labor and birth. I'm also happy to snap a few photos for you if you wish (using your own phone/device), but please note that I'm no professional birth photographer and this is not my focus.
After an hour or so after the birth, I will leave you and your family to soak in all of the sweet new baby goodness. I will be in contact in the following weeks to schedule a follow-up postpartum visit. (And to see that sweet new baby again!) At this time I will check in with you, see how breastfeeding is going, everyone is adjusting to their new normal, etc. If you require additional assistance, I will also provide additional resources at this time.
