Two prenatal meetings around 32 and 36 weeks which include:

*An opportunity for you to become more comfortable with me and for me to find out about you so I can serve you best
*Thorough discussion of your questions or concerns
*Review of and help with (if requested) a birth preference plan to give to your caregiver

*Breastfeeding information, questions, and answers
*Postpartum ideas, information, and resources

On-call support starting at week 37 until after baby’s arrival

*I will attend your birth before 37 weeks if I’m in town.  This point means that the priority in my schedule is to attend your birth and I do not make travel plans during this time unless I’ve communicated otherwise during our first free meeting.  Whether I travel or not, I always have back-up doulas in the wings to provide care in the event that I’m ill or at another birth.

Calming and engaged support during labor and delivery

Photos taken during labor and delivery as desired

Detailed notes taken and typed up for you

One postpartum in-home visit

*This visit gives you an opportunity to process your birth, ask questions, and give feedback.  We can talk about basic baby care and field breastfeeding questions.  This visit can be done anywhere from 2 days to 6 weeks after birth.

Continued postpartum help and communication when you need support, a question answered, or another postpartum resource

{Payment schedule}

$650 paid as a retainer fee
$400-650 due 30 days postpartum

This second payment is paid at your discretion based on your family’s budget and the care you received.

Your first payment and an agreed upon signed contract secures your due date.

*Please do not allow finances keep you from doula care.  Please contact me instead and let’s figure out a plan that works for your family!

“If I didn’t like a suggestion or position, she quickly found other ways to support and encourage me. Her knowledge of which positions to try and what comfort measures to use was indispensable…My husband commented on Laura’s perseverance. He noted that when things got long and hard, Laura was the one person that stayed by us, continued to serve and offered words of affirmation and encouragement. Laura was so good at knowing when I needed soft words of encouragement and when I needed a bold push.”
