Doula packages and rates

Residing in the province of Quebec, we are privileged enough to having begining to end birth related services provided to us, at almost no additional costs (outside taxes). 

Nowhere else in North America is your average person, no matter what their financial situation, able to have access to free doctors, nurses, equipment, epidurals and post partum care for free. In light of this, doula / birth coach services are very affordable when compared to the elevated costs of giving birth elsewhere in North America. 


Why treat yourself to the additional comfort in this special moment?


If necessary, I am open to payment plans, bartering and I offer a sliding scale based on individual circumstances. As a trained professional, I ask fair compensation for my services. However, I also truly value the positive benefits of doula care, and do not want financial need to make those services inaccessible to mothers who desire them. 


Lastly, Doula services make a great gift for that relative. Gift certificates are available. Birth coach / doula services are available in one of the 3 following plans:



The First-Time Mother Package
(or moms wanting a vaginal birth after cesarean)

Plan includes:
Three meetings (2 prenatal, 1 postpartum).

1st prenatal meeting: Getting to know you at this meeting. We will focus on your health history, what you want to learn, maintaining optimal health, your hopes and dreams for this birth, your concerns.

2nd prenatal meeting: We will cover labour and birth, from what labour looks, feels, and sounds like, to when to go to the hospital or Birthing Center, to how to cope with the sensations of labour, to dealing with hospital protocols.

These meetings take anywhere from 1.5 to 2 hours depending upon your questions and needs. I want you to feel as confident and as well-informed as possible.

Attendance at your birth: I am available for you from the time you are having good, strong contractions until you have birthed your baby. Depending upon where you live and/or your personal situation, I can provide non-clinical home support (meaning we do not monitor your baby or examine you, but rather get a sense of how your labour is progressing based upon our own unique skills) until you feel ready to go to your chosen place of birth, or I could meet you directly at the hospital / birthing center.

Postpartum meeting:
A postpartum follow-up meeting within a week of your baby's birth, in order to ensure you are healing, weathering the transition into parenthood comfortably, and that breastfeeding is going well. I can provide resources when necessary.

Phone and email support is available to you according to your needs-you will arrange with your doula when it is a good time for both of you to communicate.

The opportunity will be available to continue meeting at our doula soirees-many pregnant and new parents enjoy meeting with other members of their community to share experiences, listen to birth stories, and form friendships.

Cost range: $400 - $650.
