Your Sacred Space & Form Will Be Protected-The Rare Doula
There are a couple of restrictions.
Those include: not traveling outside of United States unless I know you or I am paid celebrity status $$$$$ amount. All 50 states, I am able to travel to and assist in being a BIrth Doula.
Yes. However, the payment plan can only be separated into 4 and nothing greater than that amount. For example, Mother and family choose $1,100 for in-person support, puts $300 for deposit and $200 after. Then, there is 4 payments left.
I do. $50 per hour and it would have to be 4 sessions minimum either virtually or physically within 40 miles of my location or 10 sessions maximum virtually or physically within 40 miles of my current location.
If you are in a state other than MD & WY, you will have the ability to invite me over to your house for a few nights before the baby's due date. After mother and baby return home, I will be able to assist in postpartum recovery and help organize and care for daily tasks around the house.
I do not and would prefer to bank it for health reasons and due to more evidence based research for longer term use of it for illness and disease prevention. This applies to the cord as well.

If you have paid for just Birth Doula Support, then after baby is born (with a vaginal expected birth), I will be with you and baby for 1 to 2 hours. After their birthday, we will schedule our postpartum meeting for the postpartum items dedicated to help you recover, 6 to 10 days after the birth.
Those non-profits BIRF donates to are listed here. Each family that chooses BIRF will have a portion of their payment going to those 3 organizations.
10% goes to securing your spot with $300 deposit ($8 goes to a balanced non-profit)
20% goes to 2 birth plan meetings and 2nd deposit of $200
20% goes to 10 yoga sessions
15% goes to tools used in labor process
25% goes to transportation and birth process
10% goes to postpartum items
I do not give refunds if I have attended your birth. First, and foremost, all deposits are non-refundable. As stated in my contract that is given after the Interview, if my failure to attend your baby's birth is due to my error, there will be no charge for my service (this excludes the deposit). In other words, if I attended the arrival of your child into the world, there is no refunds. Also, I spend 4+ months building a relationship with the birthing mother and that is time paid in exchange of my packaged service.
It depends on which months, but on average I take 2 or 3 maximum.
I rarely take clients after 20 weeks. The reasoning is because the longer someone waits to book me, the shorter the relationship will have to develop and blossom. Also, there is a chance that someone else may book ahead of someone who idles or stalls sending the requirements back and therefore, the late person looses a secured spot with BIRF. If someone is over 20 weeks, they would need to be really serious on sending the requirements back (deposit and intake information) within 48 hours of receiving them or risk loosing their spot for being a BIRF client.
You will feel free and formed and ready to take care of your brave baby when it's all said and done!
Then, Choose The Rare Birth Doula!
