I just started looking and am also in CA- Bay area though, and I am looking at from 1,100 to 1,800 with just 2 pre labor- entire labor and one follow up. I think it is California. My girlfriend hired on in New Mexico a few years back and it was 500- I think it has to do with cost of living. I really want a massage therapist who is a dula because touch is very calming for me. I am going to try not to spend more than 1,200 and hire a housekeeper to come in and clean for the last two weeks and first few months.
