Our Director will match you with a Doula once we have received your completed Registration Form and fee. We will also email you a Placement Agreement that you sign and return via email or regular mail. You will then be contacted by telephone with the name of your Doula who will contact you to introduce herself and discuss scheduling and payment information. You may also want to schedule a brief acquaintance visit to meet her before the baby arrives. There is a $50.00 fee for the acquaintance visit. Your Doula will bring a contract with the estimate of the first two weeks of service, which will be collected at the time of signing.
In-home visits can be arranged for four or more hours daily and can vary from day-to-day and week-to-week. Don't worry if you don't know exactly what you need. You might not know until the baby comes home. Your Doula is available to you for eight weeks after you deliver. If she has no other new-mom waiting for her services when you reach your eight weeks, your Doula can stay until her next parent delivers.
We will try our best to provide a back-up Doula if your Doula has an unexpected scheduling conflict or sudden illness/emergency.
