The Rhythm Within Birthworker Doula Package includes:
-Support by phone, email and text from time of hire.
-Two Prenatal Visits (One online/One in-Person) Each visit is between 1 1/2 to 2 hours in length. During our time together we cover physiological labor, labor coping practices, mind and body preparation for both parents as they prepare to give birth in awareness of their personal needs and desires. As a Spinning Babies Certified Parent Educator, I share The Three Sister of Balance from Spinning Babies as well as awareness for "Where's Baby", and your baby's labor and their journey!

The Rhythm Within is committed to reproductive justice for Indigenous, Black, and POC.
It is also our belief that no birthing person wanting and needing our services should go without care due to lack of monetary funds. If you are financially unable to provide full payment for my services, please ask about payment plans or sliding scale prices. If you’re able to pay full price for my services, please do so. Paying full price allows me to continue to offer sliding scale for those in need.
Gracias, Thank You!
