Frequently Asked Questions
Welcoming a new baby into the world can be overwhelming. Here are a few questions that I as a Doula often get. Feel free to reach if you have any additional questions. I look forward to walking along side you with your birthing experience.
Can my services be covered by my insurance?
There are several insurance companies that have begun paying for Doula services. I encourage my clients to call their insurance company to see if they participate. Once you find out if they do, confirm if they cover partial or all expenses. I have details on specific steps to take regarding this so feel free to reach out to discuss further.
Can I use my Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to cover my Doula services?
Good News! Yes, HSA and FSA may cover your Doula services. Because everyones' insurance works a little different, be sure to call your insurance company directly to get specific details. We are more than willing to provide any documents needed.
Does having a Doula replace my spouse, birth partner or support person?
Absolutely not! We are all there to work as a team to best support you as the Birth person. A little tip is that we are there for the spouse/birth partner/support person too.
Can Essentially Yours Doula Services provide me with referrals?
Of course! We have a list of birth professionals to include counselors, photographers, prenatal yoga classes, massage therapists, chiropractors, pediatricians and more.
"Birth is an opportunity to transcend. To rise above what we are accustomed to, reach deeper inside ourselves than we are familiar with, and to see not only what we are truly made of, but the strength we can access in and through birth."
