Our Hypnobabies instructor, Miranda Merrell, also offers doula and hypo-doula services. She loves serving her students, and other couples who invite her to witness their births! She feels it is really an honor and a privilege to assist in any way the mother desires. Miranda has been working part time as a doula and has experience in hospital/birth center/home birth, VBAC, and helping mothers through a wide range of birthing choices and situations, and is currently a midwifery student with Birth Institute. Hypnosis tools, counter pressure, light-touch massage, essential oils, birthing ball, positions, water therapy, and helping the Dad to be an essential part of the birthing process are all ways that Miranda can aid in the gentle birth of your precious baby.
Doula or Hypno-doula fees are $800 and include:
-Free initial no-obligation interview, finding a doula that is a good fit for you and your partner is essential in having a positive doula/client relationship. Lets see if we click!
-2 prenatal visits, the latter being between 35-37 weeks. At these visits we will discuss your birth preferences, what role you'd like in a doula, and have a "birth-rehearsal", where we will practice positions and other techniques for birthing.

-On call during the last month of your pregnancy and until your baby is born.
-Birth assistance, from the second you call until baby is safely born.
-Aid in initial breastfeeding session, and ensure that mom and baby are stable before leaving the place of birth.
