"If we are to heal the planet, we must begin by healing birthing."
Agnes Sallet Von Tannenberg
Every birthing family deserves a doula. It's really that simple. And yet only 6% of birthing families hire a doula. In today's society, as with most things, Doulas have become a luxury for those who can afford it. My personal goal is to never turn away a family who "cannot afford a doula". Together, we will find a way.
I am currently offering sliding scale options to all families in need of flexibility in a pay-what-you-can model. Monetary birth fees will assist me with continued education, transportation, childcare and other tools to enhance client experiences. I am also open to an exchange of services as well as pro bono agreements on a case by case basis.
I have found a calling to help families who would benefit from the presence of a doula at their birth, but are in need of assistance for whatever reasons. Whether you are a single parent, teen parent, LGBTQ, displaced, military, bereaved parent, or simply in need of additional support, I am available to you, without judgment or need of explanation.
