Doula Ines deeply believes that there is an ideal doula for every woman. Please contact us to discuss your options and/or payment plans. We offer a sliding scale based on need. The first meeting is for us to get to know one another and discuss your birth plan. For the 1-hour FREE consultation, please bring questions (google search: hiring a doula-DONA international, pdf).
