What does a doula cost?

Doula fees vary widely based on experience and local demographic. The current range across Southern California is about $300 to $2500.

My standard fee is currently $1000. This covers your prenatal visits, phone and email support throughout your pregnancy, my presence for the duration of active labor and birth, and a post-partum visit (if desired).

A non-refundable retainer deposit of $500 is required to reserve my services for the time surrounding your due date. The balance is due two weeks prior to your estimated due date.

If my fee is outside your financial ability, I offer a variety of discounts, and/or a payment plan. Give me a call and we'll find a good solution for you.
