As a doula I support birthing people of all genders, races, backgrounds, sexualities, ages, and family structures. I am trained as a Full Spectrum Doula through Ancient Song Doula Services, and work currently as a brith doula. I also offfer abortion and miscarriage support both through my doula and massage practices.
As the core of my doula work is my deep belief that every person has and deserves agency over their bodies and their families. As your doula I meet with you at least twice, and often many more times informally, prenatally to gain an understanding of your brith preferences and health/care history, help frame and guide you through terminology and choices that often arise during your birth so you are informed and prepared, and review what you've learned in your childbirth preparation and postpartum preparation as you approach the final stretch of your pregnancy. I am with you through the birth and visit at least once after you are settled in at home with your newborn(s). I happily support all birth choices and possibilities, from home birth to high risk and closely medically supervised births, vaginal and belly births, solo parents and multiple parent/guardian families, and any and all gendered birthing folx. My role is to be present for you and what supports you best in your personal birth story.
My current rate for birth support is $1500 for the entire package of support, but please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have financial limitations; I will always do my best not to turn a client down based on limited finances. And if you are someone who wants to pay it forward and pay extra towards a sliding scale client that is welcome as well!
