Birth Doula Services~ Alisha Gessner CD(DONA)

My goal as your doula is to support you in your best possible birth experience. I attend births at hospitals, homes, and birth centers. I will not attend unassisted births.

My Services Include

A free, no-obligation interview. Let’s start by getting to know each other.

Two prenatal visits. These visits are to discuss your hopes, fears, questions, and birth preferences. This is a great time for us to work together on your birth plan.

Continual support during your labor and birth. Once you are at 38 weeks, I am officially on call. I expect you to call me anytime, day or night. I will stay with you for your entire birth, and up to 2 hours after your birth. If you plan on breastfeeding, this is a great time to start.

1 postpartum visit. This visit occurs within the first few weeks of your birth. I will do my best to provide you with a birth summary at this visit.

Upon hire I am available to you via phone, text or email.

My Fee $950.00

$400.00 non-refundable deposit due upon hire. $550.00 due at 38 weeks.

I am happy to work with you regarding payment arrangements. Please contact me with any questions or concerns.

About My Fees

I hope you see the cost of doula services as your investment in a positive birth experience and healthy outcomes, not just another bill. Clinical research shows that having a doula present during childbirth is associated with many positive outcomes, for mothers, partners, and babies.

Availability

Prior to our on-call period, it may take me up to 48 hours to respond to you. (I may be at a birth or supporting other clients.)

When you contact me during our on-call period (38 weeks or later), I will respond within 15 minutes.
