What is the going rate for Post-Partum care?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Doula.Com General Discussion : One Thread

A mother soon to go into labor, wants me to be there after the birth to take care of things. She asked me to pick a price. I am not sure what I should charge her. So if anyone could tell me what the going rate for that kind of care is. Maybe the hourly rate? Thank you so much.

In my area (Washington DC) the going rate is $20 per hour
