prenatal doula services

We will support your birthing journey through positive emotional support, compassionate care, knowledgeable advice, and lots of laughter.

Investment: $1250

As part of our services, we will discuss your baby's birth process during a variety of appointments and the journey that your baby will take. We’ll talk about what you can expect so you can feel confident in your journey and in your choices. I strive to demystify birth, remove fear, and add an element of fun to the birthing experience.

I will be on call from 37 weeks and will remain on call up to six weeks post birth to support you in any way I can.
