What's included:

I offer a client/doula consultation free of charge at my studio in Hanford for all of my clients.  A good doula/momma team is one that feels comfortable together. We will talk about your pregnancy preferences, your history, and your expectations of  me. I will tell you a little bit about me, and at the conclusion of the meeting, I will provide you with a contract. You have the option to retain my services, and sign at that meeting or take the paperwork home to decide. If you decide to to this, I will block your due date on my calendar for 5 business days. If I do not hear from you within this time frame, I will assume that I am not the doula for you, in which case I will free my calendar for other potential clients.  

To retain my services, I ask for a $350 retainer (applies to the final cost of my services).  The remainder of the fee (including additional travel assessments) is due at your 38 week prenatal appointment. Payment plans can be arranged on a case by case basis.
