If you cannot afford a doula at the regular price, American Family Center can refer you out to a doula who is still obtaining experience and will offer services at a reduced rate.

A level two doula is a certified birth doula through Doulas of North America (DONA) but has attended fewer that 50 births.

Birth Fee: $850
Fee Details: I have been I doula since 1992, and a doula trainer since 1997. I recently earned my Master's degree in Infant Family Practice from ASU, so I have the experience and expertise to best help you achieve the birth that you hope for. I am willing to work for a lower fee if you are okay with having your birth video taped in order to make a training video for future doulas. Because I train new doulas, I can also refer you to students who are looking for experience if you have financial difficulty and cannot afford a doula. Please check the blue box below for more details. CONTACT KELLY
Overcoming the fear of birth
Natural childbirth in the hospital
Survivors of sexual or physical abuse
Bonding & attachment
I was the doula coordinator at Ashland Community Hospital in
Oregon before doulas were commonplace, so I learned very early
how to navigate the environment within the hospital in such a way
that would be of most benefit to the mother and her partner,
without creating conflict with the provider or the staff. I am very
comfortable working alongside the birth team as we try to help
you achieve the birth that you hope for.
Most of my births have been at the hospital, as I find myself advocating for women in that setting. I have been to two home births, one in Oregon and one in Croatia.
