An Investment Custom Fit For Your Birth

Deciding to hire a birth doula is making an investment in your birth experience.

I use a sliding fee range to work within your budget, allow you to reflect upon your birth experience, and determine the value of the support you’ve received.

Fees for Doula Services:*

  • $750 – Retainer, payment to be paid when you hire me and sign the doula agreement
  • $750-$900 – Final payment, to be paid within 15 days after the birth or at our postpartum visit (whichever is first)
  • $1500-$1650 – Total**

Customized and flexible payment plans may be arranged for families in need.

*Please note: Doula pricing may change at any time and will be confirmed at the time of hiring me and signing the doula agreement.

**Please note: Some employer insurance reimburses $1500+ for doula services. I am a Certified Doula listed on the Minnesota Doula Registry which can make you eligible for doula reimbursement through some insurance companies. Payments can also be made through HSA credit cards.

If you have any questions about my fees, please feel free to contact me!

Nicole was with us every step of the way and always available for questions. I cannot imagine going through that without her. She was amazing and we always tell people to get ahold of Nicole. She is worth her weight in gold, you will not be disappointed!
