Find a birth or postpartum doula. There are a range of levels of experience for doulas from the newly trained doula to a doula with many years experience. There are a range of "well seasoned" to "brand new" doulas to fit your needs. Doulas listed on our website do not work for MBRN or the Local Chapter. We support a mother's right to choose the type of birth that is right for her - un-medicated, medicated, cesarean, VBAC, home birth, hospital birth, or birth center birth. Every woman will choose birth practices that she feels is right for her and regardless of those choices, our goal is to support her during this incredibly important time. There are variations in philosophies and practices in the professionals listed in our member guide. The doulas within our network are trained by a national or internationally recognized organization. It is the responsibility of each consumer to verify the credentials of each professional. MBRN encourages consumers to interview professionals to determine which professional is the right person for their needs. Some doulas may provide volunteer services while others will charge a fee for service, MBRN does not regulate a doulas' fee but the network does encourage doulas participating in this program to consider each families' situation and circumstances.

I am excited to join you on this magical and empowering journey through birth because every family deserves loving and compassionate support into parenthood.
Our first meeting is free and a good way for us to get to know each other. I provide two prenatal appointments. During the first appointment, you and I can talk about your birth history, birth plan, concerns, and answer questions. You will have text, phone, and e-mail support from then on. During the second appointment, I will go over comfort measures that you and your partner can practice during early labor. At 38 weeks, I will be on-call for your birth. You can reach me by phone for 24/7 support. Once in labor, I will come when you are ready for me and support you in whatever way you need, while using comfort measures. After Baby’s birth, I offer two hours of continued support to assist with feeding and bonding. At your postpartum appointment, we will talk about your feelings in processing your baby’s birth, breastfeeding support, and any other support your family needs. My fee for this package is $450. I accept cash, check, and Venmo.
