    With prices that range from $500-$1500, hiring a Doula is an expense in pregnancy. But the lasting impact on your birth story is an investment worth considering.

    The average wedding cake in America is over $600... That's $600 for a few pictures and some (hopefully) yummy tasting food.

    Your birth story lasts a lifetime.

    Yes, this MacBook Pro is beautiful. And probably well worth the price. Until it's obsolete in a few years.

    A csection is expensive.

    Worry, frustration, and fear are taxing on the body.

    The support of a Doula is priceless... and so worth the cost.
