for non-birth clients, that is what I charge. for birth clients, I charge 200. (i can take the placenta at the birth and return it at the first pp visit, around day 3.) I am in seattle, what area you live in may make a difference. Sharon
Congratulations on this pregnancy and welcome! The first thing I would recommend is to join your local ICAN (International Cesarean Awareness Network) chapter by searching www.ican-online.org for the one nearest you.

Keep us posted on your journey! Sharon
have you tried some of the local community colleges? or the UW extension programs? both of them might have something along the lines of what you are looking for! Sharon

also, Ina May's Guide to Childbirth, especially the second half, so that she knows your body and your baby both are so perfectly designed and ready for birth. Sharon

The amount you pay is determined by you, the client, and may be based on the amount of time I spend with you, the level of service provided, your degree of satisfaction, and your ability to pay. ...

It is very common...
