In Person Birth Doula Services

Please note that the following services are only offered when shelter in place is not in effect. For more information about my birth and postpartum services during Shelter in Place please see Virtual Support. 


Looking for personalized, thoughtful and dependable birth support?

 

My birth doula support offers personalized, compassionate care that you can count on.

 

Need someone to talk to about your pregnancy and impending birth who has solutions for your unique situation? I offer a free initial consultation to determine if I will be the right Doula to work together with you and support you during the birth of your child.

 

I provide support for families based on their needs and desires at the time, meeting them where they are.

I also provide educational support based on the most current and up to date research.

My service package includes:

  • At least two prenatal home visits.
  • Unlimited phone, text, and email support during pregnancy and postpartum.
  • Educational support during pregnancy.
  • Tips and guidance in learning the tools to utilize while preparing for labor, birth, and postpartum.
  • Assistance in creating a personalized birth plan.
  • Labor support at home and/or in the hospital as needed.
  • Physical, emotional, and informational support during both labor and birth.
  • At least one, though I prefer to do two postpartum visits.
  • Referrals for local resources and support services.

Fees for Labor Doula services are $2,200.

Please understand that it is not in my scope of practice to perform clinical procedures, such as monitoring blood pressure or fetal heart tones, pelvic exams, administration of anything by IV, etc. I also cannot make decisions for you. I will help you obtain the information you need to make the best decisions for you, and will also remind you if there is a deviation from your birth plan. I will also not speak to the staff instead of you regarding decisions being made. I will discuss your concerns with you and suggest options, however you or your partner will speak on your behalf to the clinical staff.

 

Counties of service include: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, and Solano.

A sampling of cities that I serve include: Berkeley, Oakland, San Leandro, Richmond, El Sobrante, Walnut Creek, Martinez, Vallejo, San Rafael, Sausalito, and Fairfax.
