  • I generally have my clients pay a deposit when they sign the service agreement (My deposit is $200) and then they can make payments until they have paid the remaining $400. The remaining balance is due by their 38th week, when it is possible for them to go into labor at any time. My services go the same way, even for discounted or special service clients (low income, teen mothers, military...)

  • Postpartum Doulas generally charge by the hour. The going rates for Postpartum Doulas that I've seen is anywhere from $10 to $35 an hour depending on the services. Personally, I charge $15 per hour with a $50 deposit to ensure I have gas to get there.

  • Sorry, forgot to put in my first post that almost all Doulas have you pay a deposit and a remaining fee. If they don't make it to your birth in time, you are refunded your remaining fee, but not the deposit, unless you fail to contact her.

  • Most doulas will charge a deposit and allow payments. You can usually find one that will work with you. Post partum doulas may be different.

  • I have a question what are the requirements to being a doula and what do they do?
