My accupuncturist is being certified as a doula to assist me in my delivery. I am very excited that she is able to do this for me as we have a great raport and both my husband and I like and trust her. Our only question (and her's too) is how much to pay for this service. This will be her first time acting as a doula, although she has been present at 5 births using accupuncture to manage labor pain, and has a child of her own. She will be certified by the time I deliver in July and she will also give me accupuncture to manage pain. We live in San Francisco. Based on all of this information I would love to hear suggested amounts of fees for her services. Thanks!

Fees in the Bay Area range from 500 to 750 per birth. Since she will be getting certified and needs 3 births before certification (after going to the training)she can reduce her fee for you if that need be.
