1 postpartum visit via zoom to discuss the birth and and other postpartum questions you have.
1. What are your fees?
Our rates are $950 for education and support through pregnancy and birth. This includes prenatal education, birth planning, support in labor at home and in the hospital, breastfeeding support, and a postpartum visit all done virtually.
2. Does it cost different if I hire you in the first trimester verses right before birth?
No, the cost is the same. We will walk with you the whole time and work hard to educate you before birth. The earlier you hire us, the better because we have more time to plan your birth and talk about what is expected before each trimester.
3. How do I get a doula for my due date?
First, contact us for a consult and we will meet with you at a location of your choice. After that we will hold you due date for 10 days to give you time to decide. Contact us and tell us you want to hire us. After that it is two simple steps. 1-Fill out the form with our contract at the bottom of our page. 2- Pay the $250 deposit via the invoice we will email you. This fee is a nonrefundable deposit and secures your birth on our calendar. The remainder of the birth doula fee is to be paid by the 36th week of pregnancy.
4. Why would I want a virtual doula?
This is a great option for a couple that wants to birth with as few people as possible or maybe you don't have a doula who lives close by. You can easily take your virtual doula with you. She is just a phone call away.
5. Do you have a set amount of time you will support me at birth?
Not at all. We can't control when, where, or how long your birth will take. We want to support you for as long as you need.
6. Do you support moms who are having an epidural or other medications during labor?
Yes! We educate you on your options and then help you to have the support you need for the birth you want. We are trained to help you labor with or without medication.
7. Are you comfortable praying with me in pregnancy or labor?
Yes! We love the Lord and His word. He is part of our life and who we are. We will pray with you silently or vocally. We also are comfortable reading scriptures or religious birth affirmations with you.
8. Do you do any childbirth classes or postpartum prep?
Yes! We give you access to our online class as part of the virtual birth doula package. If you want more than that, we are happy to do either of those things, but it is an additional fee. We teach an individualized childbirth class for $150 for a 3 hour class. If you want postpartum prep, we do that too. It is a 4 hour visit to pack your hospital bag, meal prep, set up the nursery, etc. The cost of this service is an additional $150.
9. What do doulas do? Are you a midwife?
We are not midwives and do not deliver babies. We support you with education and comfort techniques in labor, while the midwife takes care of the delivery of the baby. Doulas take care of you from the waist up and midwives do the medical care from the waist down.
Doulas do the following:
One or more prenatal visits as needed
Assistance in writing your birth plan.
Unlimited telephone and email support during pregnancy and for six weeks following your birth.
Providing resources and/or referrals.
Labor support at home, birthing center, or hospital
24 hour on-call assistance beginning at 37 weeks gestation and continuing until your birth.
Two postpartum visits (one at 5 days and one between 3 weeks of birth- 2 months).
Prayer either silent or verbal. We are Christians who love to incorporate scriptures and prayers to support you.
We have fun during labor!
