Birth Doula Package, $1,000
Doulas provide informational, emotional and physical support throughout pregnancy, labor, birth and immediate postpartum period. Our number one priority is your overall state of well being – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and environmental. If this is in-check then labor will take over, birth will unfold naturally and breast feeding will fall into place. We will dig deep, ask the important questions and love you through your process.
Birth Doula Package includes, but is not limited to:
- In person meetings during pregnancy to build our relationship, address your questions, and educate you.
- Unlimited contact (phone, email and meetings) during your pregnancy.
- Uninterrupted physical, emotional and informational support during your labor and birth, and 1-2 hours immediately postpartum.
- A back-up doula - you will meet the back up doula ahead of time in the event that an unforeseen circumstance arises and your birth doula is not available.
- Basic birth photography with your camera or mine. For any images taken, we typically choose 10-20 to “clean up” with some basic editing. All images will be given to you on a CD for your use.
- A postpartum visit: this normally takes place within a week or so after your birth. We'll come to check on on you, to visit with you, to reflect on your birth with you, etc.

The Steps to Making a Belly Cast:
- Mother coats her belly and breasts with coconut oil to ensure that the plaster does not stick to her.
- Precut plaster strips are dipped in water and quickly applied to the belly and breasts. Typically 2-3 layers will be put on. The application of plaster strips takes no more than 10 minutes as you are working quickly because the plaster dries so fast.
- Mother waits 15-20 minutes until the cast hardens enough that she starts to feel it pull away from her body.
- Cast is set to cure for 45 minutes or so, it can then be picked up and moved
- After 24 hours, cast will be reinforced with more plaster strips, and with one to two layers of plaster/spackle
- 24 hours after that you can begin sanding - this is the most time consuming part of casting
- Once the cast is sanded to your liking, you can begin painting and decorating.
Fees, including supplies:
Casting only - no reinforcing, sanding or painting - $75
Finish Touches - you bring us the raw cast that you've made yourself, we reinforce, sand and apply base coast of paint - $125. For a painted design, add $75.
