I have significantly lowered my birth doula fees

Times are tough and right now many people are having trouble saving money, and with the rise of groceries, gas and other essential items, I feel like my doula costs should adjust for this. I have now significantly lowered my birth doula rate from September through December and possibly longer. Also, if you referrer a friend, and that friend becomes a client, I will lower your cost by $100. Spread the word – everyone deserves a doula! For additional information, please contact me at 448-7226 or by email at laura@helpinghandsdoula.ca.

Original birth doula rate: $800

NEW RATE: $600

Referrer a friend: $500

Still thinking you can’t afford a doula? I will also work out a payment sechedule that works best for you. I want to make sure you are not worrying about money during your pregnancy and labour.
