I will be available to you 24/7 for the two weeks before and the week following your birth. As soon as
you are confident that your birthing time (labor) has begun I ask that you contact me. We will talk
about where you are in the process, helpful things to remember, and what your options are at that
stage of your birthing time. Whenever and wherever you decide you want me with you, I will be there,
assisting with comfort measures, emotional and information support, hypnosis cues (if applicable), still
and/or video photography (when possible), and breastfeeding support immediately following the
birth, if desired.

housekeeping upon request for an additional fee of $20/hr.
Please call for pricing and specials. I offer a discounted rate for families who would like to
combine two or more of my services, and for families with an active service member.
Understanding that we all find ourselves in tough financial situations now and then, I am always open
to working out a payment plan that fits your budget. I also offer discounts for combining services.
