Having a professional labor support person, who is completely devoted to providing continuous labor support -- meeting the physical, mental, emotional, and informational needs of a laboring mother and her partner can be invaluable. Support during the postpartum period and 4th trimester is equally important for the whole family. I offer a variety of labor and postpartum services to meet your needs. Payment plans and sliding scale available. Learn more about benefits of having a doula and the economics of doula fees.
