Services and Fees

Doula Package: $900

  • 1-2 prenatal visits (not including the no-cost initial consultation). During these visits we will discuss your birth history, your desires for your current birth, and your birth plan. I will demonstrate for you and your partner massage techniques, positions, and comfort measures beneficial during your pregnancy and labor.
  • Phone/e-mail/text support
  • Continuous on-call support beginning at 38 weeks until your baby is born
  • Continuous labor support once active labor begins. Depending upon your preference, I will come to your house or meet you at the hospital, and I will remain with you until your baby is born.
  • Initial breastfeeding support. I will stay with you in the hospital/your home until you feel confident to nurse your baby with proper latch/position techniques.
  • Postpartum visit. I will visit you in your home when you are ready, generally 1-4 weeks after birth, at your initiation. We will discuss your birth experience and address any needs you might have at that time, as well as evaluate breastfeeding progress.

 

Postpartum Doula Services – Daytime: $100 for 4 hours

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if someone came to your home to support YOU as a new mother? That’s exactly what a postpartum doula does! We will collaborate to modify my role to serve your individual needs, but it generally looks something like this:

  • infant feeding support (breast or bottle)
  • infant soothing techniques
  • baby-wearing help
  • light housework (tidying various areas in the home)
  • meal/snack prep
  • mother/baby laundry
  • sibling activities to facilitate adjustment

*Daytime rate of $25/hour applies to any contracted hours 7am-7pm

 

Postpartum Doula Services – Nighttime: $120 for 4 hours

Sleep is a precious commodity to families with a new baby, so my goal for night postpartum work is to help create a peaceful environment conducive to sleep for everyone! While you enjoy rest, I might do any of the following:

  • fold baby laundry
  • restock diaper area
  • wash bottles and/or pump parts
  • bring you a snack or drink during those middle of the night feedings
  • prep for the following morning’s breakfast

*Nighttime rate of $30/hour applies to any contracted hours 7pm-7am

Placenta Encapsulation: $250

Placenta encapsulation is a great way to incorporate an iron-rich supplement back into your postpartum body. Studies show this practice aids in recovery, helps promote successful lactation, and can help combat the “baby blues.” (This is not the same thing as Postpartum Depression, and if you suspect you have PPD, you should contact your care provider immediately.)

*For my doula clients, this fee is $200

 

Childbirth Education Classes: $270

Registration and payment for all classes goes through Atlanta Childbirth. This class is specially designed to be informative and interactive- in other words, no more boring childbirth education! You will learn about your changing pregnant body, signs of labor, what to expect during labor, stages of labor, comfort measures, how to listen to your body during labor, and postpartum care for you and your baby. And let’s not forget partners! They will learn how to offer support throughout pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum.
