Balance In Rare Form (BIRF) is a branch from The Rare Enterprise that deals with prenatal care and the peripartum period. The Rare Doula is a woman who services pregnant women throughout their pregnancy, labor, birth, and postpartum. If you have The Rare Doula by your side, it creates a beautiful experience since you are creating a balanced beginning for your child.
Prenatal visits are encouraged during the developmental stages of your baby. We take the time to address your emotional and informational needs to ensure that your prenatal experience is one that you'll enjoy.

To know when to estimate arrival for labor support, we suggest that you text when in early labor. Call as soon as you are unsure which stage you're in or when in active labor. You deserve significant support that allows you to experience the freedom to move around as needed, eat if permitted, and relax in whatever way feels good for your body. The combination of support and comfort from your birth team is beneficial in facilitating the successful birth of your baby.
To ensure that you receive the best possible care for you and your newborn baby, we will be available to you for close contact for 3 weeks after your birth to provide postpartum support, assist with breastfeeding, and answer any questions you may have. All of these services can be provided to you in the comfort of your home or virtually. Our goal is to stay connected with you during this time for healthy development.
For just in-person, postpartum support, cost is $30 per hour for day or night support. For more information, check out the postpartum page here. If booking a minimum of 5 days of postpartum support, Mother will be treated to 1 yoni steam session per postpartum support day in the privacy of their own home.
For virtual, advice, and consel, cost is $25 per hour during normal operating day hours.
