    Hiring A Doula Is Cheaper

    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.

    3-4 Peppermint Mochas (or other Grande sized Starbucks beverages) per week will cost more than Labor Doula support in many cities.

    Pottery Barn Crib

    This Pottery Barn crib isn't the top end of what they offer, but it's more than many Labor Doulas charge to be available for your delivery.

    A Wedding Cake

    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.

    Thankfully your child never becomes obsolete. (Well, minus the teen years.)

    These Shoes.

    Sorry husbands. Her birth is worth more.

    A Small Purse

    This small 9"x7" purse costs more than doulas in most cities.


    The average cost of teeth whitening at the dentist is more than the average cost of a Doula.

    This Poncho


    Enough said.

    Not Having a Doula


    A csection is expensive.

    An epidural is expensive.

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

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