Our doulas strive to provide the highest quality personal care to the expectant mother and parent. The standard package is described here; however, each participant will be evaluated at the first home visit to determine the intensity of care for the mother / parent / partner / baby. During all visits, the R4C Doulas will ensure the creation of safe spaces that make the expectant parent feel comfortable and facilitate the development of confidence.
From helping you curate your birth plan to lactation and postpartum support, our doulas are here to walk alongside you every step of the way.
We offer sliding scale-based fees and scholarships for our doula services.
