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 am also only accepting Lincoln area clients. I am not taking Omaha clients at this time. Please see my Availability calendar, if you have additional questions or to schedule our interview, contact me.
