Doula

Offered by: Fey Cooper

Located in: Davis, California



Skill/Service Details: What is a doula?
A doula is a woman who helps other women through the birthing process. She does this by "mothering the mother." She stays with the mother-to-be through the entire birth offering comfort, support, and advice. A doula does not in any way replace a doctor or midwife, nor does she keep a woman from deciding what is best for her, be it medication, interventions, or a natural birth.

A few benefits of having a doula are:
25% less time spent in labor
60% fewer requests of epidurals
50% fewer C- sections
reduced risk of post partum depression
- statistics from The Doula Book

I have been trained as a Birth Doula by Debbie Lavin, in a DONA approved course. As a doula and a Witch I am happy to be able to help in any birth rituals or special desires of the mother, be it keeping her placenta, guided meditations during labor, or baby blessings.

Rates: My rates work on a sliding scale depending on need and means of the family. My normal fee is 400 dollars. My fee includes: 2 prenatal visits (for questions and birth plans) my presence at the birth (or one of my backups) , 2 post partum visits (to help with breast feeding and other concerns) , 1 year phone contact. As I am a college student, if you can provide transportation my fee decreases substantially. If I am not in your area or am out of your price range, please give me a call or drop me an email regardless. I might be able to help you find local resources or barter with you for my services.
