Expressions breaks down the fees because the prenatal and postpartum visits are an investment on both of our parts for a positive
birth experience, and we would like you to know exactly what you are paying for.
“on call” fee is $200.00
two prenatal visits, one postpartum visit, and two hours of phone counseling. Each visit usually lasts about 1 1/2 hours. Birth plan counseling, library loans, and developing comfort measure skills are included
in the fee.
Birth fee is $300.00
- It covers 15 hours or less of services during your labor and delivery and 2 hours
after the birth of your baby.
- After 15 hours we may need to call a back up doula, usually another Birth Expressions
certified DONA doula, for a few hours in which we will have to pay out of our fee. The
charge is $15.00 an hour to cover these extra costs.
- The $200.00 “on call” fee is due at the signing of the contract,
usually at the first prenatal visit. The remainder of the fee is due by 36 weeks.
- If there is a concern about payment, we can set up a payment plan as well.
The total base fee is $500.00.
