Birth Doula Services


MILEAGE | The standard mileage fee is included in my doula package, and covers my drive time and gasoline. The standard mileage fee applied to areas within my 40 mile one-way coverage radius. The coverage radius is from my home in northern Delaware county to your home
EXTENDED MILEAGE FEE ($75) | For areas outside my 40 mile one-way coverage radius, I charge an additional extended mileage fee.
INSURANCE REIMBURSEMENT | As a doula, I am a not a medical professional and unable to bill insurance companies for reimbursement. 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).
NON-SMOKING | I am only able to provide services to non-smoking families. Thank you for your understanding.

birth doula package | $1,000

DEPOSIT ($500) | Due at time of hire (non-refundable).
BALANCE ($500) | Due by 36 weeks of pregnancy.
REPEAT DOULA PACKAGE ($900) | If I have previously provided you with doula support, I offer a discount for your upcoming birth. This package includes the standard mileage fee and all items listed below. We have one prenatal meeting prior to birth to discuss birth plans.

Jenn’s calm and supportive presence was invaluable during our 28 hour long labor. She will be one of the first people I call if we get pregnant again!
