Our surrogacy packages can be customized for your unique situation, and can include extensive preparation services for both you and your surrogate.

Birth Package: Intended Parents

Every couple has specialized needs and we help each couple evaluate those needs and support them through each step. This is very specialized care for the intended parents and their surrogate.

We work with each new family to create the most peaceful pre-conception, prenatal and newborn phase possible to help you find your strength as parents along the way. Empowerment as a new parent comes in the form of evaluation, education, support and follow through in every step of your journey into new parenthood. Our goal is to help you achieve all of your goals with confidence and joy.

Imagine having a baby expert at the touch of your fingertips, with The Doula House it really is that easy. We travel to you, show you the ins and outs of being a new parent, and give you access to our personal cell phone so that you can connect with us as needed.
