Packages & Pricing



I offer a variety of pricing packages plus add-ons and stand alone services and classes.  In addition to discounts on some packages for active-duty military, I also discount for single teen or young adult moms whether you are keeping your baby or considering placing for adoption. I am always open to barter as well, and am able to offer a limited number of financial scholarships each year to those whose budgets would not otherwise allow doula services.  Please ask.

Stand Alone Services

  • 90 minute Birth Plan consultation $100
    • For this service I will bring several examples of various birth plans. The most important aspect of this visit is discussing the various interventions and procedures that can happen in or before labor along with their risks and benefits. I will help you to think through the items that are most important to you, inform you about the procedures that are typical for your chosen birth place, and help you to come up with a succinct plan that are more likely to be read by the staff. We will also discuss presenting your plan to your care provider and negotiating your plan if necessary. If desired, we can also discuss and formulate alternate plans in case of medically necessary deviations from your primary plan.
