EXTENDED MILEAGE FEE ($75) | For areas outside my 40 mile one-way coverage radius, I charge an additional extended mileage fee.

I can provide a business receipt for you to submit to your insurance company. There are some companies who may reimburse for doula services. Doula services can often be paid through a flexible spending account (FSA).
