KEIKI BLESSING PHOTO BOOK $50 A beautiful photo book put together for you detailing your birthing day. These books are a wonderful way to remember your special day and a great gift for family members. The detail in the Keiki books will take your breath away.
ALOHA POSTPARTUM CARE $25/hr Sometimes you may not have immediate family members in the area that can help out during the first few weeks as you are adjusting to motherhood, which can sometimes be overwhelming and stressful. Partners can usually take some time off work after the birth, but when they return to work you may be alone with other children and trying to navigate through this new process called "motherhood". I would be able to help with various tasks around the house or watch the baby as you get some rest.
**There are some insurance companies that will reimburse you for doula services (both labor and postpartum). If yours does, I will be happy to provide you with documentation. You can most likely get reimbursement with a FSA (Flexible Spending Account).
