Only Birth Support

  • Occasionally, a mother/couple will only be interested in hiring a doula for labour support, with 1 prenatal meeting.
COST: $850, includes applicable taxes.

We request half the fee as a retainer within a week of your agreeing to hire a doula.  Payment can be made either by cheque to MotherWit Doula Care or Interac Email Transfer, which is a greener and more efficient option.  A cheque or Interac Email Transfer payment postdated for your due date is required at this time as well.

Your doula is available for extra meetings if you so desire.  The cost is $100 per additional 1.5 hour session.

The doula packages are priced according the experience level of the doula.  A senior doula's services will cost more than those of a doula with less experience.
