I believe that every woman deserves a Doula…and that finances should never stop you from having the support and assistance you want or need!

For this reason, I am flexible with my rate, based on household income. I also have a decreased fee for teen & single moms.
If extensive traveling is needed, the fee will reflect that.
As of April 2015, my Doula Services are $600.00.
What does that include?

  • *Free initial consultation/interview
  • *Up to 3 Prenatal meetings
  • *Assistance in creating a birth plan
  • *Pregnancy & Childbirth information and education (prenatal classes may be offered in the future)
  • *Assistance in the home during labor
  • *Continued physical, emotional, and informational support during labor and childbirth in either the home or the hospital
  • *Photography/video during labor and birth if desired…my camera or yours. Images will be edited and put on CD for you within the week.
  • *Breastfeeding support and guidance (within the 1st hour after birth and as needed for the 1st month, in the hospital and at home)
  • *2-3 Postpartum visits and phone support for the 1st month

*Do you accept payment plans?*

YES! We can talk together and work out a plan for payment that will suit you and help me to serve you. I also accept “Service Swaps” – meaning if you or your Partner has a Trade or business that me or my family has need of, we can work out a equal swap of services that pleases both parties. Just ask!

I require a $100 non-refundable deposit at our 1st official meeting. This will secure your place on my schedule. I am committed to being on call for YOU 2 weeks before your due date, and until baby is born. In the event that I am unable to be with you, I will get a back-up Doula for you.

*Where can you go for deliveries?*

Most hospitals allow for 2 support people in a delivery suite.  Keep this in mind when planning your delivery – as some want partners, mothers, sisters or grandma’s with them in delivery. If you are planning a home birth with a midwife, I can come to your home – and there is no limit on the number of people you have…your home, your rules!

In the event of a planned or emergency C-Section – most hospitals allow only one support person in the OR. In these situations, I will defer to the Partner if he is present.

I have attended births at the Woodstock Hospital, Stratford Hospital and Cambridge Memorial. Feel free to contact me about your location and if it will work for me!

If you are looking for a Midwife and would like help in contacting Midwifery practices in your area, feel free to contact me and I will do what I can to point you in the direction of a group that can serve you! I am really hoping to see a Midwife group in Woodstock in the near future! To find out about how you can help support this cause, visit WOODSTOCK NEEDS MIDWIVES on Facebook
