Birth Services

Doula Services

I believe that everyone deserves a trained doula if they choose.  I am a Madriella trained doula and am able to support whatever birth you choose to have, cesarean, medicated, natural, homebirth, unassisted, traditional, etc. I am knowledgeable about breast and bottle feeding and have done both myself as a mother. 

Since I believe every woman deserves a doula I offer reduced 'pay what you can' rates for those that are in need. 

 I run a professional and judgement free zone. 

Before our first consultation I will e-mail you my contract for you to look over and fill out over googledocs. I require a $75.00 deposit at the time of signing contracts. The full fee for services is due by your 'due month' and I go on call at the moment the contract is signed.

I accept Health Saving Accounts (HSA), bartering, and payment plans.

10% off all service rates are donated right back into the community.

My Birth Service Areas:

I serve a 100 mile radius from my home in Lincoln for doula support. I serve many local hospitals and at your home for doula services.

The following hospitals is in my radius:

Eastern Maine Medical Center

Houlton Regional Hospital

Waldo County General Hospital

Mayo Regional Hospital

Holly No. 7  Birth Center

I will travel state wide for all my services, but if you need me to travel more than 100 miles I will have to add on a charge of .50 cents per mile to cover gas needs. 

I offer reduced rates for teen mothers, military families, veterans, and woman considering adoption.

Bereavement Doula Support

Baby loss support is a free service to anyone in need. Pregnancy loss, child loss, infant loss, and stillbirth happens; you are left with shock, a new future, and a slew of options and questions that frankly do not make sense at the moment these events happen. That is why I am here. I have personally gone through over ten miscarriages and a stillborn daughter. I will help you navigate through your feelings, options, questions that you may come across, help with meals, and just be there for you in these hard events. I will travel as much as I am able in the state of Maine and I am always available 24/7 by phone, email, and texting. 

Lactation Consultations 

I am a professional breastfeeding specialist and I am trained to help mothers feed their new infants. I will help you prepare for breastfeeding before your baby and I will help with any issues you may be experiencing such as milk production, pain, and latching difficulties. This is 15.00 per hour long session. Sessions available online or in-person.

Training and Education

I provide approved Proverbs 31:25 Doula Training Workshops. I was approved as a Madriella Approved Workshop Provider in 2015. Currently Madriella redoing their AWP. I will still offer trainings unaffiliated with Madriella, but please note they are redoing their requirements and I am unable to provide Madriella Approved Workshops. You will still receive trainings from a knowledgeable and certified doula and an educated and experienced mother of four. I travel state wide and these rates do not reflect millage rates needed to travel more than 100 miles.
