Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a Midwife and Doula?

A Midwife is a trained healthcare professional that can conduct the delivery of a baby. Midwives catch babies. Doulas are certified and trained to support, provide information, and be a voice of advocacy for the birth person and their support person. Doulas do not provide any medical information or conduct any medical tasks.

Do you only support unmedicated births?

No! I am happy to provide support with any type of birth you have planned, or takes place. I believe that any person who wants a Doula should have one. I understand and honor that every person has a different desire, wish, or plan for their birth. Medicated or not, I am happy to provide the type of support and advocacy you need.

What type of birth settings do you go to?

I am happy to attend the following: home births, hospital births, or births at birth centers. A Midwife must be present if giving birth at home or in a birth center.

Do you accept insurance?

I am happy to work with your insurance company! However, Doula coverage varies depending on the state you live in and your insurance company. I would encourage you to contact your insurance company to see if you have coverage. Otherwise, I have payment plans available and am happy to work with your budget.

What areas do you serve?

I serve the following areas: Vancouver, Battle Ground, Portland, Salmon Creek, Longview, Ridgefield, Amboy. If you are not in the areas mentioned, I am happy to review where you are located to see if we could work together. An additional fee may be required due to distance for drive and time.
