As a doula, I have established my fees on an income based sliding scale. I decided to set up my fee schedule in this manner because I believe that every woman deserves to have a loving and supportive individual during birth. I don’t believe that a women’s ability to pay should prevent her from having this option. That being said, this is also my profession and it is important that I be able to afford to continue providing these services to women. Discounted services will be on a limited basis and the guidelines for these discounts will be strictly adhered to.
I fully realize that being in a military town and being a military wife myself, many women also don’t have the luxury of having a partner present. For this reason, I offer discounts to active duty military and their qualified dependents.
Please refer to my description of services to understand what is included in this fee. Also please refer to the available optional services that are provided when requested for an additional fee.
A detailed *fee schedule will be provided at the time of our initial meeting. Your individual circumstances will be discussed and my fees will be based on that. Should you choose to hire me as your doula, we will draw up a contract at that time with the appropriate fee schedule and a deposit will be collected in order to secure the date block. In any case, my fees will never exceed **$750 and I will never request a deposit greater than $250. I’d be happy to go over your personal situation and give you an exact quote.
If you have specific questions about your circumstances or your individual fee, please contact me directly and I'd be happy to discuss this with you.
* Please note, as a student doula, I will be charging a maximum rate of $250. The full rate will not go into effect until I have fulfilled all student requirements as set forth by Childbirth International and receive my full certification.
** Optional services are available at an additional cost.
