Birth Doula Services

Childbirth is an intimate life experience, and you want to be comfortable with your birth doula. I offer a free one hour interview to get to know one another and see if we are a good fit for your birth. I recommend expecting families interview at least three doulas before making their decision. If we decide that I am the doula for you, I will send you my digital client contract and schedule our prenatal visits.

I currently limit my birth commitments to just two due dates per month. I only accept clients that reside and/or are giving birth in the Lincoln area at this time. If you have additional questions or to schedule our interview, contact me.

I provide doula services with a flat fee, your investment covers my complete care for you from our date of hire through our postpartum visit. Please contact me to discuss my payment schedule, payment alternatives, trade and barter, and scholarships/pro bono services for at-risk and disadvantaged populations, I am committed to the vision of DONA International: A doula for every person who wants one.
