Deb Walker, Birth Doula
Phone: (530) 417-3798
I interned with Mother Tree Doula Services of Portland, OR. Prior to this internship, I completed the Doula intensive by Mother Tree; and, I completed the courses and workshops in Doula training by Childbirth Education Specialists in the Sacramento, California area.
I have performed doula services professionally for the last three years. Prior to that, I naturally birthed three beautiful babies and watched them mature into fine people – my closest of friends. It was my privilege to assist my daughter as she labored to deliver my grandchild.
The birth of baby means a mama is born. This precious, priceless event should be supported; and, every effort should be made so that this life is celebrated and new roles are embraced. A doula’s place is that support place.
I believe that I was born to be a doula. I have the deepest respect for life and for all things living and for the beauty of the birth experience. Empathy for the needs of others and a spontaneous response to those needs has been one of my characteristics all my life.
I plan to facilitate the birth experience; and then if needed, I will help with the settling-in experience. I will be a resource for strength and calm for parents and for babies.
My services and fees:
My fee is $500.00 for 1–2 prenatal visits, home and/or hospital support, and 1-2 postpartum visits. A minimum deposit of $250.00 is required at agreement signing. Any extra visits will be billed at $50.00 per visit up to 2 hours each visit.
