Any time! The earlier in the pregnancy I get to know you, the more personalized support I can offer. Birthing parents commonly contact a doula around 20 weeks. I am happy to meet with you at any time during pregnancy.
At any time, from pregnancy up to one year postpartum. Typically, postpartum visits are booked week to week, but can be booked months in advance if needed!
I offer a complimentary, obligation-free 30 minute consult at any time through the pre or post-natal period, to help answer questions, clarify my role and meet with you!
Some health insurance plans do cover certified doula fees under “support services”. It is best to check with your plan. I am currently working towards certification.
