Packages and Pricing


My services are designed to meet the full range of needs of expecting families. I detail my birth doula package and pricing here to allow you to make an informed decision about my services, in the same way that I intend to help you make informed choices about your birth care. A complimentary 30-minute consultation is available to all potential clients as an opportunity for us to interview each other and determine the best avenue for meeting your labor and birth desires. If you would like more information about payment plans and possible barter options, please do not hesitate to ask.

Sliding Scale fee: $800-$1600 investment

Doula work has been my calling since the late 1990’s! Having supported 250+ families, I’m one of the most experienced birth doulas in Middle TN. In light of my experience and training, $1600 is an appropriate fee within the current Middle TN market for birth doula services; however, I offer a sliding scale to everyone. This allows you to find the perfect price point between my value and your ability to pay.

I do not require any proof of income or explanation from my clients. I simply ask that you choose an amount that is a fair balance between how you value my support and what you are able to pay. My $800-$1600 sliding scale is a guideline of where I value my services and experience. My clients choose the rate that works best for their family. 

Payment Schedule: 50% as deposit, 50% by 36 weeks (smaller payments can be made on balance); $250 of deposit is a non-refundable retainer
