The first payment (50% of the fee) is due as a retainer deposit at the time of the booking and the second payment is due in full by 36 weeks.
*All deposits are non-refundable
Advanced Doula (Monitrice) Scope of Practice
A Monitrice is usually a Doula that has some training and practice in midwifery skills.
A Monitrice can perform some limited clinical skills if requested by the client such as checking blood pressure, vital signs, listening to fetal heart rates during labor and/or perform vaginal exams.
This service is a great addition if you are planning to labor at home as much as possible before going to the hospital.

Phone & Email Support
I will be available 24/7, via email, instant message, text message or cell phone, to answer any questions or concerns. Even if it's 3 o'clock in the morning :)
As a Doula I will provide support from the first signs of labor (by phone or text), join you at your home or hospital when contractions are approximately 5 minutes apart and stay with you throughout the entire labor and birth.
The birth support consists in providing emotional support, physical comfort measures (including Acupressure) and an objective viewpoint, as well as helping the mother get the information she needs to make informed decisions.
Baby’s first feeding Support
I will remain 1-2 hours after birth to make sure you and your partner are comfortable and to help establish breastfeeding (if applicable).
Postpartum follow-up visit
I offer a courtesy postpartum visit to share labor record, birth story and provide breastfeeding support.
Antenatal Support / Birth Preparation and Remote Coaching (no in-person Labor Support)
If you are not interested in the entire Doula package but would like to know more about the process of labor, birth and postpartum, I also offer a 2 hour long private consultation to provide you as much information about birth basics, your birth options, references, local hospital policies, birth plan preparation and more.
I will be available for follow ups and even remote support *when you are in labor* by phone, text or email to answer any additional questions.
Consultation, Birth Plan Preparation and Phone/Email Support: $450
Acupressure care is safe, very effective and beneficial while experiencing pregnancy related discomforts such as morning sickness, hemorrhoids, sciatica and lower back pain. It can also be used during labor as a relaxing and effective comfort measure.
I will gladly teach you and your partner some specific points that can be very useful during pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period.

As a Doula, I Do Not:
Make decisions for you

Speak to the hospital staff on your behalf
As a Doula I will not speak to the hospital staff on your behalf I might, however, facilitate the communication between the laboring woman, her partner and her clinical care providers.
