::: REPEAT CLIENTS AND THOSE BIRTHING WITH WILLOW MIDWIVES PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR SPECIAL PRICING :::

I feel strongly that no one should go without a doula based on financial restrictions.  If you are looking for a doula and my fee is cost prohibitive please contact me and we will work together to find you a doula, whether it be myself or another volunteer. I do allow for a few reduced fee births per year because I believe in paying it forward for the gifts and talents of others that have been given to me in my process towards realizing my life’s passion.
