Birth Doula Packages

Journey to Birth Doula Support
Basic: $250
Deluxe: $700

All the benefits of a doula in preparing for your birth journey and postpartum time, but for those who do not wish for in-person support during their birth.

Basic

  • Two prenatal visits to assess your needs and desires for birth, create a birth plan, discuss comfort measures, understand common concerns during pregnancy, birth and postpartum.  These visits will provide you with useful tools for labor and birth to approach the special day with ease
  • Birth preferences assistance to help you clarify your preferences for birth and explain the options that are available to you
  • Access to lending library of books, videos, and additional information related to pregnancy, birth, and baby care
  • One postpartum follow-up visit to celebrate the birth of your baby, debrief about your birth experience, and answer any questions you have during the early postpartum period
  • Text and email support during work hours leading up to the birth and in the postpartum period.
  • 24/7 On-call time is not available with this option.

 

Deluxe (includes on-call time, virtual support for the birth)

  • Everything included in the basic Journey to Birth option
  • Unlimited phone, text and e-mail support to answer your questions and offer suggestions and support throughout pregnancy and during labor
  • On-call at 37 weeks via phone/text/video chat.  This allows you to ask questions as you lead up to labor, have a second opinion on whether you are actually in labor, and to provide support for questions/concerns/suggestions throughout your hospital stay and immediate postpartum.
