Pregnancy Doula & Consultations
Traditionally, a doula is a trained lay person who supports women during birth and afterward. I put a twist on that tradition by also offering pregnancy-only doula services. This personalized prenatal support is perfect for people who don't want or need an additional person at their birth but would like some support to help achieve their pregnancy and birth goals.
Do you need help writing your birth or postpartum plan? Are you feeling unsure about your option to schedule an induction or cesarean birth, for example? Let's work together to explore options and figure out what is best for you!
This service includes an in-person meeting and all the phone calls, emails, or texts during your pregnancy, labor, and/or postpartum that you need.
This service is included if you sign up for any other Wisdom Within service. Pricing for these consultations starts at $40 for a 2-hour meeting together and the charge is for in-person meetings only. Any additional communication is included. Contact me to arrange these services.

About Payment and Pricing
Because I truly believe in the benefit of quality childbirth preparation and support during pregnancy, birth and immediately postpartum, I do not turn away any woman for inability to pay. If you feel that you have a financial hardship and are interested in services, contact me and we can make arrangements based on your situation, including reduced, sliding scale fees, payment plans, the possibility of bartering for services, or referral to another appropriate professional. Although payment is made directly to Wisdom Within, I can provide you with a receipt and information on how to seek reimbursement from your insurance or flexible spending account as applicable. Additional charges may apply for any meetings scheduled outside of Tucson city limits.
