BIRTH DOULA FEES:
Doulas charge based on experience, certifications and location. We have over 20 years of experience and have attended 500+ births between us. There are not only certified doulas but LDR nurses, childbirth educators and post partum care doulas on our team. Currently in Waco there is a higher demand for doulas in our area, which is a great thing! Currently, Micah is our only birth doula with the one-on-one client/doula pkg.
- Experienced Doula: $750-$980 (over 50 births)
ON-CALL ROTATION TEAM:
Waco Doula is very excited to announce our new On-Call Rotation option to the Central Tx area! Here’s how it works. As a client you would hire the whole team but you would choose who you would like to be the lead doula for your birth. This will be the doula you build a relationship with, the one who meets with you for prenatal meetings and your doula for the postpartum visit. We encourage women to find the best fit for them so interviewing more than one doula on our team is expected. More than likely this doula will be in attendance at your birth. However, you need to understand that these are women due to seasons of life, who can not be on call 24/7 for 4 wks on their own. That’s where the beauty of the on- call team comes in! At any given time there will be 3-4 doulas on the rotation with set days that they are on call ready to serve each client. If your lead doula is sick, out of town or has pressing situations that make her not available you have the assurance that a qualified doula will be there to support you. These doulas are a mix of certified doulas, Waco Doula apprentices, nurses and are all passionate about supporting women during childbirth. During your prenatal care you will have had the opportunity to meet each doula so that you do not feel like a stranger is attending your birth. Starting January 2018 these will be the women on the rotation:
- Chonna Colbert
- Hannah Bray
- Kelley Stone
- Ali Otwell
*please see the ABOUT page to read more about these amazing women

POSTPARTUM DOULA FEES:
Each postpartum pkg is carefully designed by the client and doula based on the specific needs of each individual. Whether you’re looking for initial help in the first few days or you’re a new mom and need extensive support, there is no job too big or too small. The Waco Doula team is willing to travel outside the Waco area and will work evenings as well as overnight sessions.
Our prices range from $25-$40 an hour per session. Each session has a minimum of 3 hours. Pricing depends on services provided, how many sessions you’re wanting (the more sessions you book the less you pay per hour) time of day for each session, traveling and the current demand for postpartum doula work in our area.
Please contact our postpartum doula for a free in home consultation. We’re ready to serve you!
