“A woman experiencing an unplanned pregnancy deserves to experience unplanned joy.”
- Patricia Heaton
I provide my birth* and postpartum** services to women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy for $50. I believe in making a difficult time in life just a little bit easier. The support from a doula during your pregnancy, labor and birth, and postpartum is an invaluable resource. It should be available to all.
In order to acquire my services with this program, you must meet this guideline:
- provide proof that you are getting ongoing support from a pregnancy center such as Care Net, LaVie, or another similar organization.
*for Sapling Package only
**two - one hour postpartum sessions (for birth doula clients only)
