Can I afford a Doulas Support?

A common misconception about doulas is that they are only for high-income families. 

As a doula, I provide prenatal support, prenatal meetings, birth preference investigation & creation, labor and birth support, two weeks of postpartum support, and more.  I value the privilege of getting to be a part of a woman’s birth experience tremendously and feel every woman deserves support. This is why I have researched and decided on a pricing model that is not only fair to my clients, but also fair to my family and myself, so that I can provide the best care possible to each client.  There are so many ways an expectant mom can achieve her dreams of having a doulas support through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.
