I have been a Doula for a long time and my fees have not changed in that time, as i wish to remain affordable for families.
It is very important that we meet to make sure that we are the 'right fit' to work alongside each other. Please know that if you are after just general information or not sure if my fee is attainable for you i am happy to chat on the phone to see what i can do.
