Some situations require unique training and experience, such as adoption and surrogacy. As a certified Stillbirthday Doula I have completed the additional training for Adoption Doula (you can find my listing and valuable resources at adoptiondoulas.) There are additional decisions to make such as when and how the adoptive/intended parents will be involved in the birth and the transition from birthing mother to family and knowing and understanding what both parties are experiencing. Due to the variety of circumstances it is best to discuss your support needs during a complimentary consultation before a rate can be determined. The birthing mother may desire more or less than my typical full-service package and that will affect the total cost of services. Together we’ll chat about the desired plans and come up with a package that fits your needs. I can cater things such as the pictures, birth timeline, and other keepsakes to provide for both families if desired. Please know that your dignity, your privacy, and your family will be treated with complete respect and compassionate care. The clients I have worked with under these special circumstances will always have a special place in my heart. Building families…I doula that!
