fees

UPDATE ON COVID-19 Arrangements as of 16/01/2: I continue to offer a combination of in-person and virtual Doula service in order to comply with current local NHS rules and policy guidance. If you are planning a home birth I offer in-person support. If you go to hospital to give birth then currently NHS Devon Healthcare Trust restricts numbers of birth supporters to one. It is necessary to review these restrictions on a regular basis as the situation can change.

I will support you via video link, phone call or other remote means that we agree. If the situation allows, I can also combine virtual support with in-person support.

Fee: Virtual Doula service – £700.00

Initial consultation for antenatal/birth doula support (no charge/no obligation): I meet with you via a virtual zoom call for half an hour to discuss your needs, and to outline what I can offer you.

Fee: in-person antenatal and birth doula support package – £700.00 in line with Doula UK guidance

Initial consultation for antenatal/birth doula support (no charge/no obligation): I meet with you via a virtual zoom call for half an hour to discuss your needs, and to outline what I can offer you.

Bespoke services – I offer bespoke antenatal and birth/postnatal doula support to include a range of services in line with your requirements; you may identify a day of particular antenatal doula support, or you may want the complete birth support package – the choice is yours. I am happy to discuss your support needs and negotiate a mutually acceptable fee, so please contact me for a chat.

Fee: Postnatal support – £25.00 hourly rate. I am an independent post-natal doula. I offer virtual and/or in-person support. I do not offer night-shifts, but otherwise I am flexible about times worked; the timing, frequency and duration of these sessions can be negotiated depending on your needs (travel expenses as above).

Fee: Birth reflection service – £55.00 for the initial assessment (up to 1 hour); subsequent sessions charged at £45.00 per hour. I offer virtual and/or in-person support. We can meet in your home or a private meeting room, wherever you feel most comfortable.

Baby loss support – a bespoke service

Please contact me to discuss your support needs.

Finally…as your doula, I offer knowledge, experience and a deep commitment to you; my fees reflect all three. In return I ask for fair compensation for my services. However, if financial issues are a concern for you, we can discuss a payment plan to spread the cost of my services; please talk to me about this.
