Coronavirus (COVID-19) Policy:

I am fully vaccinated, however during my attendance, I will remain masked unless eating or drinking.


Birth Services:

If you are interested in hiring me as your birth doula, we will have an initial interview to make sure we are a positive fit! Our options are either a virtual meeting through Google Meet (no cost) or in-person ($20 non-refundable) for the initial interview. If we are a fantastic fit and both sides decide to move forward, I will send you a Square invoice for the full birth fee (due by 35 weeks gestation) with 25% of the deposit due upon hire (deposit is non-refundable).

Cancelation Policy: 
If I absolutely cannot attend your labor and birth due to unforeseen circumstances (contagious sickness, family death, etc.) and you have already paid the full fee, I will send a back-up doula in my place or refund half of the birth fee. If you fail to keep me updated/choose not to inform me when you go into labor or to the hospital, I will not refund your birth fee due to my calendar being blocked for you. I am willing to consider every birth on a case-by-case basis due to unforeseen or extenuating circumstances.
