enlighten, inspire, empower

Because I know that people and births are unique, and that what you need may be different than what another woman needs, I have separated my services into "companion packages". Important: My first consultation visit is always FREE, so you can have a no-pressure chance to get to know me and see if you're comfortable with me. These packages and visits are only planned after we come to an agreement concerning what services you want, and sign a contract.

The Know-How Companion Packet: cost -- $75

If you want information and know-how on pregnancy, labor, postpartum health, or pain management techniques, but you don't want me there for your actual birth, then this packet is for you.

It includes:
Two in-person or phone consultations before the birth, lasting at least an hour long.
+
One in-person or phone consultation after the birth, lasting at least an hour long, for any questions you may have concerning breastfeeding or postpartum healing. (If you change your mind at any time and want me to come to your birth, then you are always free to call me and upgrade this packet, although I can't guarantee that I will be available to make it on very short notice.)

The Rub-My-Back Companion Packet: cost -- $350

If you don't feel that you need information, but you want a companion at your birth who is calm, positive, and trained in pain management techniques, then this packet is for you. (Especially great for women who have had several children and know exactly what they like and want in a birth assistant.)

This package includes:
One in-person consultation before birth, lasting at least two hours long, so we can get familiar with your birth plan and discuss your preferred pain management techniques.
+
Continuous, dedicated support during the whole event of labor, however long or short that may be, and for up to two hours postpartum to make sure feeding and bonding gets off to a good start.
+
One in-person home visit after birth, lasting at least an hour long, to review and discuss the birth, and to answer any questions you may have concerning breastfeeding or postpartum healing.

Hold-my-hand Add-on: cost -- $50

This can be added to any of the above packages. It includes 24/7 unlimited access to my phone, texting or calling, for two weeks before your due date and two weeks after the birth. If you need encouragement, reassurance, and/or information, then I will be there for you, day or night. I'll answer or get back with you as soon as possible.

The Ultimate Doula Companion Package: BEST VALUE! Cost -- $400

If you want the full deal: hands-on help, companionship, and information during your pregnancy-labor-postpartum journey, then this packet is for you.

It includes:
Two in-person consultations, each lasting at least an hour long, before birth, so we can strategize a birth plan, get informed about pain management techniques, and discuss anything that may be holding you back from experiencing this special birth to its fullest.
+
Continuous,dedicated support during the whole event of labor, however long or short that may be, and for up to two hours postpartum to make sure feeding and bonding gets off to a good start.
+
One in-person home visit after birth, lasting at least an hour long, to review and discuss the birth, and to answer any questions you may have concerning breastfeeding or postpartum healing.
+
24/7 unlimited access to my phone, texting or calling, for two weeks before your due date and two weeks after the birth. If you need encouragement, reassurance, and/or information, then I will be there for you, day or night. I'll answer or get back with you as soon as possible.
