Gentle Birth Childbirth Education
teaching the Bradley Method®
Each series is 8 weeks long. I understand this may seem like a great time commitment. It is! These classes are designed to well-prepare laboring couples on what they can expect out of childbirth in a home, birth center, or hospital setting. We will cover ways to stay healthy, practice how to relax through each contraction, discuss & practice various pain-relief techniques, how to make informed decisions, how to prepare the coach for what lies ahead, and much more!
Each series is $350 with a $50 non-refundable deposit due no later than 2 weeks prior to class start date. This includes the cost of the Bradley® student workbook.
The word "doula" comes from the Greek language, meaning "servant or slave." As your doula, I will be on-call for your birth and will support you in your home & at your place of birth until delivery. I will meet with you two times before delivery, at least once in your home. At one of these meetings we will discuss & develop your birth plan. Then I will meet you twice postpartum to assist with breastfeeding and anything else you may need support with postpartum.
The cost for doula services is $650. If you take my classes, I will deduct $100, making your total cost for services $550. I would require a $250 deposit up front, then you can make payments to me until your 38th week of pregnancy, when the remainder is due in full.
I am now able to take payments via PayPal. You may select from the options below. Please note that there is a 6% charge for PayPal transactions, so if you prefer to forgo this fee, please contact me for to arrange payment by check.
