I Am the mother of 7 and have been working "unofficially" as a doula for several years attending friend births and now have my certification.
Studies show that hiring a Doula will greatly reduce your chances of having a cesarean. I will provide you with 4 appointments before your birth,(it's a mini childbirth education course and a chance to get to know each other), and 2 appointments after your birth (to make sure you and your new baby are adjusting well, and I offer help with breastfeeding), and of course the birth itself. My job is not to replace Dad (or whomever you've chosen) as labor coach but to offer informed assistance to the laboring couple (single mothers find a doulas help invaluable).
My fee per birth is $400.00
If you check out the seperate costs of childbirth classes, a doula, and a lactation consultant you will find this is an amazing deal. I am only offering this for a short time while I get my "official" experience. I am working towards my bachelors degree in midwifery and am doing doula work so I can stay in touch with the birthing community while studying.
