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. (I offer a sliding scale to families in need.)

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 the safety of everyone, I’m being very upfront about my current COVID-19 protocols .

 

  • I am only working with families that match my level of quarantine, which is basically still phase 1 in my house. We don’t have an expanded bubble with other families. We order groceries. We mask even when walking in the woods. Our toddler is not in daycare. Husband works from home exclusively. The only thing that is semi-expansive is that I meet with my acapella quartet every other week in an outdoor space, masked and 10+ feet apart.

  • I have been working with one family at a time. If there is overlap, I will do at least two weeks of virtual support for both families to end with one and begin with another.

  • I wear a mask and ask families to wear masks, too.

  • I wash/sanitize hands and disinfect surfaces/handles regularly and ask families do the same.

  • I wear fresh clothes before and after visits.

  • I wear my hair up and away from my face.

  • I take my temperature (and my family members’) each day and ask families do the same.

  • If anyone is symptomatic we communicate that and don’t have a visit. These are unpredictable times. Unless a client is sick but didn’t tell me, they aren’t responsible for payment for less than 24 hours cancellation for COVID-19 symptoms.
