Hello Michela, Thank you so much for reaching out to me in regard to my birth doula services. I am available for your 4/4/22 due date. May I ask where you are planning on birthing your baby? I would love to speak with you more about the services I provide. If you would like to share your email with me, I'd be happy to send you my contract as well as some references you may call to see if you would like to work together. One point of interest that you should know, currently I am only providing Postpartum Doula Services (PDS) to clients who hire me as their Birth Doula as well. I know you did not mention this in your note, but wanted you to know in case you decide to work with a Postpartum Doula as well. As we are in the time of Covid-19, and the Delta variant is affecting so many, I would love to hold our interview over Zoom. I am fully vaccinated (including booster), and happy to discuss coming to you for other meetings when you hire me. I would like to share some information about myself before we set up your interview. I am certified as a Birth Doula with DONA International (www.DONA.org). I became a Birth Doula in 2001 and have attended over 270 births. I took my Postpartum Doula training with DONA as well. In addition, I am also a Certified Lactation Educator and Childbirth Educator with Blossom Birth and Family in Palo Alto, CA. I bring experience, wisdom, and knowledge about the birth and postpartum process to you, your partner, and your entire birth team. If you are interested in reading testimonials from previous clients, you may find some at these locations: · Yelp - http://www.yelp.com/biz/birthing-babies-a-celebration-of-life-hayward-2 · DoulaMatch - http://doulamatch.net/profile/832/deanna-dawson-jesus When you see my contract please note that the current fees on my contract are higher than those listed on my website. I apologize for this discrepancy. I am currently offering a sliding scale between the two amounts ($2,500/website and $3,100/contract). I want to be fair until I can finalize my new website. Regarding payment, I take cash, check, and/or credit cards. If you like to transfer money via an app, I prefer Zelle but can also use PayPal. If you have one available, you may also use your FSA/HSA account to cover my services. Should you do this, I provide you with a detailed invoice that you can submit to your HR Department. I am also happy to help you submit to your Medical Insurance company to see if we can get you reimbursement for some of, or all, my support. Regarding PDS, as you will see on the contract, the two larger packages include contracted PDS above-and-beyond the birth of your baby. These are contracted daytime hours where I come to work for you in your home. Should you consider one of these packages please let me know and I’ll happily forward my postpartum contract to you as well. For our first meeting, the "Interview," there is no charge. If you would like to set up a meeting, I can send you a Zoom invite. Let me know some days and evenings that are available for you over the next two weeks and I'll confirm a day and time that work for me as well. Thank you so much for reading all of this. I look forward to hearing from you. In the Doula Spirit, Deanna Dawson-Jesus (925) 216-7264 deanna@birthingbabies.info

Oh my gosh, I am so sorry! I just looked at the note I sent you and the system took out all of my formatting. If you can't read it, don't even try. Please send me your email if you are comfortable, and I'll send it to you again with the formatting.

Test <p> Test <br> If you see a line break, between the two "Tests" it means I'll have to enter in HTML formatting. I will do my best with this going forward to make it easier for you. If you do not see any breaks...there is nothing I can do. Sorry.
