The services can vary with each doula.
The complete birth accompaniment fee starts at CHf 800.- and up, depending on the location and the doula’s experience. Doulas who are still in training have a reduced tariff. The costs can oftentimes be paid in either rates or after reaching an agreement with the doula.
Partial care (e.g. only preliminary or follow-up conversations), further conversations or a prolonged on-call time are possible and are settled depending on the effort. One could e.g. use this for personal birth prep.
Some doulas also offer extended puerperal care (instruction in handling the newborn, relief in the everyday chores)
These services can also be made use from, depending on which further education the doula has acquired.
For women/couples with a limited budget, we always aim to find a common solution. An accompaniment should never fail because of costs. We urge you to uninhibitedly contact the office or directly with the doula of your choice. They will gladly give you further information. One possibility could be for instance to get a doula companion who is still being trained and thus has lower fees.
