Doulas cost money. As well they should! I am at your beckon call 24/7. I don't have that second glass of wine on the chance you may need me tonight. I often leave the warm snuggles of my children in bed at 2:38am to be by your side for an unknown amount of time. And I love it! Supporting and seeing clients be respected while they meet their babies for the first time is such an honor, I am so very grateful to call it
And sometimes clients are looking for creative ways to pay me. The standard answer is: cash, check, credit, debit or PayPal. Let's explore our other options!
A baby shower is the perfect opportunity! When friends ask where you've set up your baby registry, tell them "Birth With Bethany"! They can pool their money together and purchase a doula gift certificate for you. What other gift could impact a lifetime?
Budgeting. Whomp whomp. So boring, right? True, but it is what my husband and I did to afford our doula. Cable tv? Gone. Starbucks? Home-brewed tea is fine. Coupons? Yes, please!
Payment plans. Did you know that I accept payment plans? We can create an agreement that works for both of us, allowing you to schedule your payments in order to be paid in full without hassle. Cool!
According to www.bestgaragesaletips.com, the average profits from a yard sale is $500-$700! That's a lotta moola! Obviously, this takes planning and lots of preparation, but it is definitely garage sale season in the Lewisville, Denton, Flower Mound and Dallas areas right now! And you can get rid of extra stuff to make room for your new baby. Nesting, anyone?
