Mary Gillett, CD(DONA)

Certified Birth Doula

My Philosophy of Service:

I will make every effort to treat my clients with integrity, and provide a very valuable birth support service.  It is impossible to know ahead of time whether a birth will be short or lengthy, nor to know the level of support that will be required when the time comes.  I do not discount my fee for unusually short labor and birth experiences, however I do charge an additional hourly fee for continuous support that extends beyond 18 hours, because I will need to pay a back-up doula to provide relief.  My investment includes not only the time in labor, but the time blocked out for the birth, which often requires accommodations or cost on my part since I work full-time and usually have to contract and pay a back-up doula to be available.  You can check out my contract and explanation of services below.  Please feel free to address any questions you might have through e-mail, or at our first visit.  I appreciate your interest and look forward to serving you.
