Postpartum Support

As your certified postpartum doula, it is my goal to help you adjust to the many changes and challenges you may encounter with a new baby.  It is my hope that when you have support, those challenges can feel less overwhelming, your confidence may increase over time and your new family can flourish with mindfulness and self-sufficiency.

Standard Fees and Scheduling:

My postpartum doula service fee is $45 per hour for daytime and overnight visits. (My rates have some flexibility when considering certain circumstances like proximity or client budget needs. Let's talk!)

There is a deposit of 16 hours service due at the time of signing an agreement.  This is a non-refundable retainer that reserves the contracted hours.

Daytime Sessions:

Scheduled daytime visits are typically 4-6 hours,  2-5 days per week for about 4-12 weeks, depending on your family's need. 

Overnight Sessions:

Scheduled overnight visits are typically 8-10 hours, 2-3 nights per week for about 4-12 weeks, depending on your family's need.

COVID-19 Protocols:

For safety, I am upfront about my current COVID-19 protocols and expect clients to share theirs:

  • I am fully vaccinated and will ask if clients are vaccinated.

  • For the first two weeks, I wear a mask and ask families to wear their masks whenever possible. If all of your family members are fully vaccinated, we can be unmasked for the remainder of our visits.

  • I am only working with families that match my level of COVID precaution: still masking indoors publicly and COVID cautious around unvaccinated people.

  • I have been working with one family at a time. This could shift as more people get vaccinated. I will confer with clients before taking on a concurrent client.

  • I will get a COVID test before starting with a new family.

  • If anyone is symptomatic or had contact with someone with COVID, we communicate that and cancel our visits until resolved.
