fees

UPDATE ON COVID-19 Arrangements as of 28/09/2021: 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.

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 – £600.00*
*My fees for 2022 are currently under review

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

Fee: in-person antenatal and birth doula support package – £600.00* in line with Doula UK guidance

Fee: Travel – traveling expenses are charged at 45pence per mile (ppm) for journeys up to 50 miles, 40ppm thereafter.

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 – £15.00* hourly rate. I am an independent post-natal doula. 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).

Baby loss support – a bespoke free 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.
