Give the gift of a Doula-

SLIDING SCALE POLICY ​

All services are based on a sliding scale. I do not want cost to influence anyone’s ability to receive the care that they deserve. Birth is expensive and raising a baby is even more expensive. I recognize institutionalized systems of oppression and want to make my services available to marginalized or disenfranchised families who are still in need of Doula services. For each client, I am open to discussing financial options such as discounts, payment plans, and sliding scales. If these costs intimidate you, please do not hesitate to reach out and I will do my best to make my services available to you and your family.
