BIRTH DOULA PACKAGE

Sliding scale $1000 - $1250

PRENATAL CARE

I will visit you at your home once or twice depending on how far along you are in your pregnancy. If you are hiring me after 34 weeks, we might discuss the option to have one prenatal and two postpartum visits. We will spend this time getting to know one another and building trust and comfort.

 

I look forward to hearing about your hopes, concerns, and expectations regarding birth. We will talk through your birth preferences, and if you do not feel prepared to make a decision, I will supply you with resources so you can make informed choices about your care.

 

I will answer all of your questions during pregnancy and provide any resources or referrals you may need. I am on-call 24/7 starting at 38 weeks until your birth, which means I am always available and anticipating your call. 

BIRTHING GUIDANCE

We will be in communication throughout early labor and decide the best time and place for me to meet you. Ideally, I will meet you at your home and we will travel to your planned place of birth together.

 

I will coach you through active labor with continuous physical and emotional support. I will guide you and your partner to ask the right questions and communicate your needs and preferences with your medical team. This will allow you to make informed decisions about your care with confidence.

 

I will assist your loved ones and show them comfort techniques. We will work together to ensure you are well taken care of with continuous support during labor.

POSTPARTUM CARE

After the baby is born, I will visit your home within the first two weeks to see how your family is adjusting to life with a new baby. I can help with breastfeeding, getting a good latch, and answering questions you might have about feeding your baby.

 

I also create space for you to reflect on your experience. As someone who was present throughout the length of your labor, I can fill in gaps and answer your questions. I think it is tremendously important for mothers to have time to process, celebrate, grieve, and express however they are feeling after this hugely physical and emotional milestone.

 

At this time, I will also provide any additional resources you might need to help you feel supported during the postpartum period.

Additional prenatal visit: $75/hr

Additional postpartum visit: $50/hr​

TESTIMONIALS

“Sam was pretty spot on with her support. I had been a doula myself, it could have intimidated Sam, but it didn't. She guided me with confidence, reassurance, and thoughtfulness. Sam blended right in seamlessly with our team. The nurse expressed how happy she was to have Sam at the hospital. Our OB was so impressed she asked for Sam's contact information. I think Sam went above and beyond during the postpartum visit. She was so thoughtful and brought us homemade food and even offered to heat it up. Some of her strengths were her ability to stay calm, keep me focused when the pain became very intense, her knowledge on different positions and counter pressure points and her assertive yet humble nature.
