Barbara Heid Doula Services

Pregnancy, labor, and childbirth are profound physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual experiences.

I celebrate each woman's right of passage into motherhood...

and I support the choices she makes along this unforgettable journey.

As your Birth Doula, I...

  • strive to help you create the most peaceful and relaxing birth environment possible
  • recognize pregnancy and birth as a transformational experience you will remember forever
  • understand the physiology of birth, and honor your unique emotional needs during childbirth
  • assist you and your partner in preparing for and carrying out your desires for your baby's birth
  • provide continuous emotional support, suggestions for comfort & progress, and an objective viewpoint
  • assist you in obtaining the information necessary to make good decisions before, during and after birth
  • help facilitate communication between you, your family and your medical care providers
  • help your partner/support person participate at his or her own comfort level
  • work with a back-up doula in case unforeseen circumstances prevent me from attending your birth

My Birth Doula Service includes:

  • Unlimited email/text/phone support, as well as access to my lending library.

  • 2 Prenatal Visits: At these visits we will discuss your hopes, wishes and needs for your birthing time as well as your personal preferences for comfort and relaxation. We will review what to anticipate during the different stages of labor to best prepare for a healthy and gratifying experience.We will also discuss ways to prepare for your early parenting days. Each visit lasts approximately 1.5-2 hours.

  • Doula Support at your birth: I will be on-call for you 24 hours/day beginning two weeks prior to your estimated due date until the birth of your baby. I will join you at your home, hospital or birth center when you need my support.I will remain with you throughout your entire active labor and birth, and for about one hour postpartum.

  • 1 Postpartum Visit: I will visit you at home within one week after the birth of your baby.

The fee for my Birth Doula Service is $900.

$400 deposit is due when you hire me as your Doula. $500 balance is due at your postpartum visit

(unless other arrangements have been made in advanced).

My Birth Doula Fee remains the same for each birth that I attend for your family.

I am committed to providing support to all mothers. Extended payment options are available.

If you are interested in learning more about my Birth Doula Service, please contact me. 

We can coordinate a time to meet in person to discuss your wishes for your upcoming birth.

This will help us determine if I am a good match for your needs, personality and situation.
