In-Person Doula Support and Other Offerings
I offer one-hour pregnancy consultations for those seeking limited support or guidance prenatally to ask questions and help prepare for labor, birth and postpartum.
-My fee for consulting is 125.00/60 minutes.
I offer virtual doula support anywhere in the world!
-Fees dependent on level of support desired.
For those in the Jacksonville/North Florida area, if you’re interested in working with me as your birth doula, I offer a no obligation phone consultation and/or virtual meeting to see if we are a good fit. I am also open to in-person meetings in my service area, if preferred.
Should you decide that I am the Doula for you, my services include the following:
2+ prenatal visits to discuss: your birth vision, preferences, the process of labor, hospital protocol and procedures (if applicable), tools to help you achieve the homebirth or birth center birth you desire, ways we can work together to achieve your goals, review comfort techniques during labor, plans for postpartum recovery, and address any questions or concerns you may have. Can also include an office visit with your care provider or a home visit with your midwife. Additional meetings available upon request.
Phone, text, and email contact as needed
Access to my lending library, recommended reading and resources
On-call for you 24/7 beginning 3 weeks before your guesstimated due date and continuing until your baby’s birth day (but basically on-call from the moment you contract with me!)
Reassurance of an amazing back up doula in the rare case that it becomes necessary. I intentionally limit the number of clients I take on in order to help prevent any crossover (though birth is unpredictable!)
Phone/text support during early labor
Continuous labor support at home and/or hospital/birthing center, preferably close to onset of active labor but sooner if desired/needed
Attendance and support during your cesarean birth if needed/chosen and approved by medical staff
Photo or video documentation I am able to capture during the birth (if requested)
Emotional, physical, and informational support before, during, and after birth
Postpartum follow up via phone/text/email for any questions or concerns and any needed referrals
At least one postpartum visit within the first 1-4 weeks (at the client’s request and convenience) to discuss the birth, address any concerns, assist with feeding, receive feedback, give referrals as needed, and (of course) admire your baby
*If you have any other special requests please feel free to let me know!
-Please contact me regarding fees. If you are working with a specific budget, let’s discuss!
**I truly believe in your right to birth your baby the way you want to and I want to help you. Please do not let cost be your only reason for not hiring a Doula. Payment plans or sliding scales may be available. If I cannot serve you, I will do my best to help you find a doula who can.
A portion of my full rate goes towards supporting BIPOC doulas and resources for underserved communities.
“Katharine is incredible in every way. She taught me there is no right or wrong way to birth. The right way is whatever the right choice is for your individual self. It’s about achieving your best birth, may that be w/ or w/o an epidural, home or hospital, or anything between. Your doula should embrace your choices and help you achieve the best version of it. The right birth is an empowered birth. That’s exactly what Katharine did for us.”
