Birth Support

Whether you choose to birth at home, a birth center or in a hospital, you deserve warm, empathetic, and attuned support from someone who is as committed to your positive birth experience as you are.  I only book one birth client per calendar month so that I can focus more fully on your needs and ensure my availability.

Each birth package includes: 

  • An initial consultation and 1-2 prenatal sessions.

  • Continuous labor support at your home and/or the hospital or birthing center.

  • Comfort care following the birth of your baby and an optional follow-up postpartum visit, in your home.

  • Phone, email and text support, from when your contract is signed until 12 weeks postpartum.

 

Sliding Scale Fee: $800 - $1400


I offer payment options. please inquire if you need some flexibility in making doula support work for you.

Postpartum Support

With postpartum doula support, you get practical, hands-on help and emotional support while you recover from birth and adjust to your life with a new baby; always with total respect and support for your parenting choices, whatever those may be. I only work with two postpartum families each month, to maximize my availability and your convenience, and to more fully focus on your unique family and needs. Priority scheduling is given to families who have just given birth, up to six weeks.

  • Help with newborn care while you and your baby learn each other's unique communication style, and rhythms.

  • Feeding and sleep support.

  • Meal and snack preparation.

  • I do dishes and baby laundry.

Fee: $30 HR

A la carte scheduling is available, as well as special package rates. 

nanny Services and On-Call Childcare


Even if I'm not working with your family every day, your child is important to me. I'm fully committed to fostering their emotional and physical well being, nurturing a relationship of trust, and to providing consistent, gentle, child-centered care. I work with respect for your parenting choices and routines to best serve your child's unique developmental stage and needs. 

When you work from home, or if you are freelancing, you might not need or want a full time nanny.  Once you're established as my client, you can either schedule me for regular hours each week, or just give me a call when things get busy and I will fit you in to my schedule. If work slows down and you don't need me as often, there are no awkward conversations and no daily/hourly minimums that you need to worry about meeting. Life happens, work is not always predictable when you work in non-traditional industries, and I seek to work with you around all of that.

  • Flexible scheduling and no weekly minimum for hours. If you need me one day, two days, half a day or no days in a given week, that's fine!

  • On-call support. If your schedule is a little up in the air but you think you might need childcare, you can easily reserve a block of time in advance for a small, non-refundable retainer. If you use my services, the retainer is applied to my total rate for the day.

hourly rate: $18 - $20/hr
