My Birth Doula package operates on a Base Rate Concept. Once we agree on the fee there will be 3 partial payments due by 38 weeks covering up to 80% of the final negotiated rate. These payments are a non-refundable retainer to secure my availability, covers the prenatal visits, and my 24 hour on-call commitment to you. The remaining portion of the fee covers the birth and postpartum visits, and will be due at the first post-partum visit.
The Base Rate Concept is the idea that couples cannot fully value the role of a doula until they experience having one at their birth. With this in mind, I like to keep my base rate a little lower and at the postpartum visit, if you feel your experience was more than you expected it to be, gratis payment in excess of your base rate final payment is appreciated. It is not expected as the base rate covers my services, but is greatly appreciated for a job well done.
