Your Information

If You wish to reserve services, You may be asked to supply certain information relevant to Your Order including, without limitation, Your name, Your email, Your phone number, Your credit card number, the expiration date of Your credit card and Your billing address.

You represent and warrant that: (i) You have the legal right to use any credit or debit card(s) or other payment method(s) in connection with any Order; and that (ii) the information You supply to us is true, correct and complete.

By submitting such information, You grant us the right to provide the information to payment processing third parties for purposes of facilitating the completion of Your Order.

By working with The Healing Doula I am giving permission to the doula to gather confidential and private information about me that I choose to disclose to her and information regarding my pregnancy, birth, and postpartum as well as any information regarding my child/children. I realize that this information will possibly be shared with the backup doula if needed. Other than the backup doula, this information will not be shared with anyone outside of the organization.

 

Refunds and Cancellations

Please be advised that a 24-hour cancellation notice is required.  Cancellations made less than 24 hours will be subject to a charge of $50.00.

 

Half of the amount of your chosen package will be due upon the signing of this contract and serves as a retainer for putting your due date on the postpartum doula's calendar. The remaining half will be due during the first week of service. Postpartum doula package fees are a payment plan for contracted hours and are not itemized, thus upon contract signing, you agree to the contract in full. Refunds are not provided for any unused portion of the contract and payments are not transferable.

 

There will be an additional 2 weeks added on to each package to act as wiggle room in case you need to reschedule a couple visits.

 

If your postpartum doula cannot work the agreed hours on any given shift (due to illness), she will provide a qualified backup and will be responsible for payment of her services. The backup postpartum doula will provide the same services outlined in this contract. You will also be given the option to reschedule those hours if you prefer. The postpartum doula will also be responsible for any fees associated with this backup.

 

If the postpartum doula needs to cancel services all together this will qualify in a full refund.

 

Payments

Payment can be made through various payment methods we have available, such as Check, Cash, Visa, MasterCard, Affinity Card, American Express cards or online payment methods (PayPal, for example).

Payment cards (credit cards or debit cards) are subject to validation checks and authorization by Your card issuer. If we do not receive the required authorization the postpartum doula has the right to delay services.

Honest communication about any relevant medical, dietary or emotional health conditions. When it comes to nutrition support it is your responsibility to tell me beforehand of any food allergies or dietary restrictions.

 

Doulas are NOT doctors or midwives, and do not practice medicine, nor diagnose and treat postpartum related symptoms. Information presented in our meetings and conversations is not intended as a substitute for the medical advice of a properly licensed health care professional. In addition, doulas do not make specific health claims or promise medical results. We provide education and guidance, and postpartum and breastfeeding support.

 

The doula will be available for support outside of your home visits during normal business hours for advice or questions. If there is an emergency do not call the doula, call 911.

 

A postpartum doula does not dispense any medications (over the counter or prescribed) to any member of the family or diagnose any medical conditions in mother or baby.

If applicable, you must notify me within 24 hours after the birth of your baby so that I can

arrange my schedule to accommodate our contract.
