Doula packages are based on your personal needs and are more specifically discussed during consultations and as we lay out our doula-client agreement. The following are basic options with various add-on services available.
I accept approximately 3 clients per month. My radius for labor and birth is within approximately 1.5 hours of zip 26164 (including the Teays Valley Birth Center) though other locations may be available, just ask! Mentoring and classes are held online as well as Ravenswood or Parkersburg or in your home.
A deposit is required upon signing an agreement to secure your birth time in my schedule. Payments are then made according to the schedule outlined in our agreement. Gift Certificates are available and doula support is an excellent item to add to your gift registry.
Perinatal education and doula support is a holistic investment for you, your baby, and your family. Studies show doula-attended births result in more spontaneous births, lower intervention rates, better breastfeeding rates, and happier families both from education received, awareness of options, and continuous care from a trusted ally. Your birth will change your life whether you plan for that or not. Education and adequate support can be an immense preventative measure for the health and happiness of you, your baby, and your family's future whether that's by improving your birth experience and/or improving your ability to enjoy and understand your birth experience. Many insurance companies will reimburse for doula services and you're encouraged to submit a claim. Though I do not submit claims, I do have an NPI number and provide submission information for clients.
