Postpartum Services

Initial Consultation

Meet our doulas, learn about our services, fees and packages during a complimentary initial consultation in your home or location of your choosing. During this 30 minute meeting, one of our doulas will answer your questions and go over our postpartum services. We will discuss your schedule and our availability. We bring a contract to this meeting, so if you are ready to work with us, we are ready too! The initial consultation can be done either before birth or at any time after birth.
