The rates for a doula vary quite a bit. That depends on experience, offer, contact moments and various options that are offered. If you discuss a photographer for your wedding, the costs are quickly €1000. Nice to show the album to everyone and then the album disappears forever in the closet…unseen as a beautiful memory. Keep this in mind, a doula’s investment in making you feel empowered and give your child a safe haven whether that is at home or in the hospital is something you will take with you FOREVER for you and or your partner and your child. This is an investment forever!!

Differences in price are depending on the contact moments, experience and different options of guidance.
Although a number of insurance companies now recognize the importance of the doula, the costs are (still) not reimbursed by the health insurers.
Nevertheless, I always advise to submit the invoice. In this way it becomes clear how many women now choose a doula and how small the corresponding medical costs are.

It may also be that you have a freely disposable amount with your insurance.

My rate is € 950, –
