Additional Information

I will have at 2-4 backup doulas on call from your 38th-42nd week of pregnancy and will arrange for one of them to take my place until I am able to arrive. In the case of a backup doula, I will collect the entire fee from you and arrange payment for the backup doula myself.


Though I highly value birth professional work, I also believe that every person deserves support through labor and am more than willing to discuss alternative payment methods (payment plans, bartering, etc.) If price is an issue please get in contact with me and we can work something out, or I can connect you with additional resources!
