My Birth Doula Package Includes:
One free consultation: This is a chance for you to get to know who I am and to see if you feel I can be of help to you.
Two prenatal visits: This is a time to discuss birth choices, review comfort measures and relaxation techniques, process any fears you or your partner may have regarding the approaching birth, and talk about postpartum concerns and breastfeeding. If you would like, we can also develop a written birth plan to best convey your preferences to your medical providers.
Unlimited communication: You can call, text, or email me with questions or concerns you have on your birth journey. I will give you all the knowledge I have and will direct you to resources if I cannot answer your questions fully. Due to life circumstances, I may not always be available to respond immediately, but promise to get back to you within 24 hours.
Continuous labor support: I will be on call 24/7, for two week prior to your due date and two weeks after. This means I will come to support you in labor when you need me; anytime day or night. Many times this is at home in early active labor and then continues at the hospital or birth center if not delivering at home. I will also stay with you 1-2 hours after delivery to help establish bonding and breastfeeding.
One postpartum visit: This visit takes place about 2 weeks after the birth of your baby. We can address breastfeeding and talk about any other postpartum concerns you may have.
Back-Up Doula: I always provide a back-up doula to attend you in labor in the rare case that I am unavailable due to unforeseen circumstances. If you would like to meet your back-up doula, I can arrange for her to attend your second prenatal visit.
Customization: You are free to customize your services. There are no services that you must accept. If there is anything that you don’t see mentioned above, please feel free to ask me if I can provide it for you. Remember, I want to do this your way.
Service Areas: I serve clients from East Los Angeles County, East Orange County, East San Gabriel Valley, and the Inland Empire. If you are looking to a doula outside my service area, I will be happy to help connect you with a doula in your area.
Fees: My fee is $700, of which $350 (as a deposit) is required upon signing the contract. This will reserve your due date on my calendar, as I usually limit the number of births that I am able to attend each month. The remaining $350 is due the day my 24 hour on-call service begins (2 weeks prior to your EDD) or any time before it. If the fee is paid in full upon signing the contract, a $50 discount will be applied.
