Full Spectrum Doula Services

Years of experience as a teacher, sex & consent educator, and nanny, has lead me down the seamless path into full spectrum doula work. I am certified as a birth and postpartum doula through Cornerstone Doula Trainings in Oakland, CA. My professional philosophy focuses on natural support for labor, making room for emotional and spiritual expression of all kinds, and meeting you where you are at. I want to support you in the pregnancy, birth, and postpartum journey that you are looking for. I am queer, ethically non-monogamous, and put the highest value of importance on informed consent and clear communication. When I'm not providing support, I love to read, write, and snuggle with my two rescue chihuahuas.

  • Facebook - Grey Circle

I have limited availability for birthing clients as I only take 2-3 births per month. My availability for postpartum and abortion clients is much more flexible. If you are interested in working with me, please fill out the form below or send an email to: doulawildflower@gmail.com

Frequently asked questions

How much do your services cost?


$1200 for the birth doula package. Packages available for postpartum care. No cost for abortion and bereavement clients.




Where are you located?


I am located in the Richmond/El Cerrito area of the SF East Bay. For birthing clients, I need to be able to get to your location with one hour of your first call, so my geographic range is limited. For postpartum clients, I am willing to travel up to 30 mins to your house. For abortion and bereavement clients, I am willing to travel up to an hour to get to you. For more information, contact me directly: doulawildflower@gmail.com




Do you catch babies?


No, doulas are not clincally trained and therefore do NOT perform any clinical duties. Instead, doulas work alongside midwives and obstetricians to provide the best care possible for birth. For more info, check out: Evidence on: Doulas




What if I cannot afford your full price?


Contact me anyway. I have some availability to accomodate sliding scale clients. Queer, trans, and clients of color have priority for sliding scale accomodations.




How can I help support your sliding scale and abortion clients?


Click here to donate! Money goes directly to providing services for those with lower incomes and marginalized folks.




I've already had a baby, should I still hire a doula?


Just as every baby is different, every birth is different. Maybe this is your second, or maybe it's your fourth. Doulas can help by providing care for you and your family throughout the process, even if it feels like a walk in the park. Additionally, there is always the chance that new challenges will come with this birth. Doulas can help with that too!
