Prenatal Doula Services

Prenatal/Antenatal Doula

$20/hour

When pregnancy becomes "high-risk," in the event of illness or injury, limited physical activity or even bed rest may be recommended or required. This can be extremely difficult for the one who's used to doing it all. Your doula can provide emotional support, assist with light household duties, meal preparation or planning, and help care for the siblings-to-be. Basically, everything your postpartum doula can do after baby arrives, she can provide prenatally in the event that pregnancy becomes complicated.

May also include information and assistance with birth plan/preparation.

  • $20/hour

(Any remaining antenatal contract balance at the time of birth may be applied to Postpartum Doula services if desired.)

 
 

Registry Ref

$35

Personal registry building and shopping. Many parents-to-be are excited to begin putting together their list of "must-haves" for their new arrival as soon as they see the positive pregnancy test. But walking into the baby boutique may inspire an immediate panic attack as all the options available compete for attention. A personal registry guide can help you make sense of all the baby stuff and build a registry tailored to your family's unique style and situation.

Doula will meet you at the store of your choice (Buy Buy Baby, Target, etc.), and will walk with you through each section to discuss your options and help scan all the items. 

  • 2-hour Registry Building Shopping Trip: $35

  • Additional hour(s): $15
