Doula Bundles

I offer several bundles that may assist you through these difficult times, or in the very least get you thinking about your needs. Services are certainly not set in stone nor are they one-size-fits-all, this is merely a starting point. If you need a service added or subtracted, we can work together to come up with the perfect plan for you. That’s why the initial consultation is free. Then a contract is developed and agreed upon. My fees are based on a sliding scale and can be adjusted depending on need.

Bundle #1: Comprehensive

If you have a care team already in place most of the time, but you need assistance with the paperwork and planning process, and you’d like someone to attend and organize the vigil process.

  • A free initial, in-person or virtual consult (approx. 30 minutes in duration)
  • 5 scheduled (1-2 hour) visits which can focus on advance directives, wishes for care, legacy work, vigil planning, writing final messages, or planning a living wake celebration, etc.
  • Unlimited phone/email access
  • On-call availability for vigil sitting
  • Post-passage visit(s) to process the experience with loved ones

Bundle #2: Preparation

This package is for those who are looking to get all of their ducks in a row, so to speak. If you have a solid, comprehensive care team already in place but you need to take care of the paperwork and planning, I can assist you with that.

  • A free initial, in-person or virtual consult (approx. 30 minutes in duration)
  • 5 scheduled (1-2 hour) visits which can focus on advance directives, living wills, wishes for care, legacy work, writing final messages, etc…

Bundle 3: Hands-On Care

This package is for someone who need hands-on assistance.

Bundle #4: After Care**

If you have a solid, comprehensive care team already in place and all of your advanced directives filled out, this is your next step. This bundle is focused on preparing for what happens after one passes. This allows family and friends the opportunity to grieve without having to worry about most of the details.

** After-death care is regulated differently in each state. To find out what your state’s regulations are, click here. For example, in New York State, a funeral director must be hired to file the death certificate; receive the body from a hospital, institution or other place; personally supervise the funeral services; and personally supervise the interment or cremation. No matter where you live, it is legal in every state to bring or keep a loved one home for a ceremony of the family’s design and choosing. An end of life doula/home funeral guide does not perform hands-on after-death care and cannot charge for those services. They also cannot charge for making funeral arrangements. However, they can help guide families through the process and they can charge for consultation, education and for providing supplies.
