* For each new complaint it is important to have 3-5 days of consecutive treatments. This initial fee covers all treatments within a 5 day period. It is important to have short bursts of intensive treatment to address any acute (new) complaints as it is far more effective than once a week.
**Follow up visit fees are for regular maintenance visits.

This includes: Three prenatal meetings, on call for 4 weeks around estimated due date (two weeks either side of estimated birth date) as well as two postnatal meetings. There is the option for a payment plan, please discuss this with me. For a more indepth description of our birth support please visit our Doula Services page.

Postnatal Doula Support

$50/hr minimum two hours
Support in your home while you adjust to life with a newborn. Help with different parenting decisions, help with older children, cleaning, washing, cooking (you provide the food). I am pretty flexible about what I can do, just let me know what you requirements are!

Childbirth Education

Please contact me, as it will depend on your requirements. Please also look at the shop for online Childbirth Education options.

Breastfeeding Counselling

$50 for 30 minute consult
$100 for up to 2hrs of support

Generally appointments are around 2 hours, it is best if you try to time the appointment with when you will be feeding your baby to avoid wasting unnecessary time. Generally home visits are available providing you are not located more than 30 minute drive from Upwey. Phone follow up is also included in the price of your initial consult, I will generally follow up within a day, and then week or so of your appointment to see how you are going and if you require any further face to face appointments.


Payment is able to be made via either eftpos (credit or debit) or cash (please have correct money) on the day at time of treatment.

Please advise any cancellations at least 24 hours prior to appointment to allow other patients to make use of the time.
If you fail to do this on more than one occasion you may be charged 25% of the full treatment price.
Gift vouchers are available for all services.
I have a Referral Rewards system- please ensure you tell me if you have been referred by someone, as they will be given a thank you gift.
I am open to an exchange/barter or working on a sliding scale if you are unable to afford treatment, so please feel free to discuss this with me if required.
