Alyssa does work on the sliding scale and does not want price to be the deciding factor in whether or not a family can have support during pregnancy, labor, and the postpartum period. Doula care is an investment into you and your family’s well-being. Furthermore, research reveals that doula care can significantly increase your satisfaction with your birthing experience.
Alyssa structures her fees to accommodate all financial circumstances and budgets. When we are all supporting each other as a community during this sacred, transformative rite of passage, our community and future generations will flourish. Clients who can afford to make a higher investment allow her to continue working with those who have limited resources. Thank you for paying it forward and asking for flexibility when necessary!
Depending on what your needs are, Alyssa, the birthing person, and partner can sit down and decide what services to utilize. Whether that be a birth doula, postpartum doula, someone to watch your other children while you labor and prepare him/her for the arrival of a new sibling (sibling doula), on-call nanny, and/or an insurance advocate (assistance with understanding prenatal billing).
