Frequently Asked Questions
Is a doula the same as a midwife?
No, not at all. The midwife is there to deliver the baby and take on the medical responsibilities. The doula is there to provide emotional support and resources for to ease labor.
What are your interactions with medical staff like?
Though we are not medical professionals, we build a relationship with medical staff at each birth. We can sometimes bridge the gap and advocate for moms or help them advocate for themselves but our main focus is mom and baby.
How will hiring you affect my partner’s role during the birth?
As a doula, my role is to be a vital part of the team in whatever capacity that means for you and your family. I will offer a plethora of resources to both the birther and the partner to assist in easing the birther.
Do you accept insurance?
Not at the moment however, we do have payment plans available. All birth and labor services must be paid in full before or at 36 weeks.
Why can't I book services online?
Because this moment should be sacred for you and your family, I require either a phone/video consultation and/or a meet and greet before taking on any clients. I find it very important to make sure I am a good fit for you and your family!
What can I do if want to book you but cannot afford it?
My desire is to support as many people as I can. I can offer a sliding scale fee with proof that you are not financially able to cover the prices. I can also offer a payment plan!
