Birth Doula

** I will no longer be accepting Birth Doula clients for the remainder of 2016 and all of 2017, I apologize for any inconvenience and urge you to contact the Sista Midwife Directory or DoulaMatch.net to locate a Doula for your birthing needs. Be well! **

As a birth doula I am a vital part of your birth support team, I offer incessant, uninterrupted presence during your labor. I have knowledge of comfort measures and help to advocate for you to acquire your wishes and goals. My presence can be relied on for constant support and to offer breaks to other family members and friends so that you feel fully supported throughout your entire experience. I also facilitate communication between you, your partner or family member, and any clinical care providers. Once your baby has arrived I provide breastfeeding support immediately after the birth. Having a birth doula present during your birth may decrease your length of labor, reduce need for medications/interventions and increase time spent with your baby.

I accept clients who are planning a home birth, birth center birth or hospital birth (vaginal or C-Section) in and around the Seattle area from Shoreline to Renton. I accept any and all clients: female-male families, female-female families, queer families, transgender families, surrogate births, single parents, teen families, and pregnant people who are considering adoption. Whether this is your 1st baby or your 12th you can count on Sacred Light to support you and your family through this amazing experience.

*If you are in need of Doula care for a miscarriage, stillborn, or special needs births please contact me as I provide these services free of charge.

Doula Care Payment Options:
I accept cash, personal checks, and Pay Pal. If you have special financial/budget needs please contact me so that we can try to work out a plan that will work for your family. I require a non-refundable deposit of 20% of your anticipated services to reserve your space on my birth calendar. Services should be paid in full by your 38th week of pregnancy unless other arrangements have been made.

Flexible Spending Accounts:
Doula services qualify to be used as pre-tax dollars through many employers’ benefits policies. Please inquire within the human resources department of your company to see if this applies to you. This can mean quite a bit of savings on the cost of doula care if your company has this kind of flexible spending account.
