Most doulas offer a complementary meet & greet to allow both parties to get to know each other better to determine if it is the right fit. Feel free to use any of these questions to guide your conversation!

  • What is your policy if I have a scheduled cesarean?

  • What is your cancelation policy?

  • How do you manage things if you have multiple clients birthing at a similar time?
