Supporting Birth for AnyBODY

I believe that all births deserve the support of a birth doula no matter what type of birth you choose or chooses you. Currently, only 6% of births are accompanied by a doula. My philosophy is that every birthing person deserves a doula. I am here to help you advocate for your preferred birthing experience. Whether you choose to birth at home, in a hospital or birthing center, with an epidural or without, I will help you advocate for your choices without judgment. Part of my support is a helping you make informed choices by knowing the resources available to you.

Regular exercise may shorten the duration of labor plus reduce the risk of Cesarean section and gestational diabetes, please ask about dance classes to assist in your pregnancy fitness and birth.

Contact me to set up a free in person interview at 678 636 9333. You can secure me with or without an in person interview. 

I offer three types of packages, discounts if you pay in full up front:

Basic Package- $750 includes 2 pre-partum visits, a birth plan, access for advice during the day and via email up to the 35th week, 24 hour access after that via text, 1 Post-partum visit with baby sign language instruction, and my all inclusive education resource list.

That's a Wrap Package- $850 includes everything in the Basic Packages PLUS a Belly/hip binding wrap pre or post-partum (wrap can be used during both times, you get to keep you wrap). 

Dance It Out Package- $1000 includes everything in the That's a Wrap Package PLUS 2 BirthDance private lessons and dance support during labor.

Belly Binding Wrap- $80 Includes cotton cloth wrap, first binding, plus instructions on how to do the wrap yourself for the duration you feel you need it. Usually a post-partum wrap but many mothers use this while pregnant also for hip, back and lower belly support.

BirthDance- Fun classes for fitness and learning about how movement can help baby's descent. Client receives playlists for music that relaxes or motivates you to move. 

*Half of this fee is due upon choosing me as your doula, and the remaining amount is due at the final prenatal before the birth. PLEASE set up an account for my website when you make your payment. By purchasing my service you agree with the terms of my contract.
