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.

 
 

Birth Doula Services

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. When you hire me as your birth doula, you will receive:

  • Phone/text/email support

  • In person on-call support as needed until the client has given birth

  • Facilitation of your search for balanced and accurate information in order to make your own informed decisions about your maternity care

  • Access to my lending library of books, videos, rebozos, and resources

  • In-depth questionnaire exploring your and your birth partner’s needs and choices for your birth

  • At least one prenatal visit (typically two, 2-hours each)

  • Backup doula support as needed

  • In-person support approximately 1 hour from the time you request my support in childbirth

  • Breastfeeding support immediately after birth

  • At least one postpartum visit (typically one, 1-hour each), approximately 2 weeks after your birth

  • A copy of my notes from your birth

Childbirth is unpredictable, your fee covers my support and services provided before, during, and after your birth. There is no extra charge for a long birth, and there is no refund for a short birth.
