Birth Doula Support
My role as your doula is to help support a positive birth experience and guide you and your birth partner to feel empowered and in control of your birth.
I will spend time with you and your family to learn about your needs and ensure that you have access to the resources you need to make the decisions that are right for you. Always providing you with evidence based information and pointing you in the right direction for local care, allowing you to make informed decisions surrounding all aspects of your birth.
All families have preferences and expectations of the birth of their children and I will always be flexible and non-judgmental, supporting and mentoring you in any of the paths you choose to take.
I am able to provide care during the prenatal, birth and postnatal periods and can tailor my time to suit you and your family.
I'm currently being mentored by Kate Woods, Conscious Birthing Doula. You can find out more about her here on her website. This means that I am being guided as a start my journey as a doula with her expertise and many years of doula knowledge.
The standard package I offer is:
2 Prenatal visits to discuss your birth plans and help create birth preferences if required (1-2 hours each time)
Regular communication by text or email to answer any questions and to support you on the way
Signposting and access to my birth and pregnancy books
I will be on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from the 38th week of your pregnancy for 4 weeks
I will support both you and your partner throughout labour and birth, ensuring that you both rest when you can and keeping you both well nourished and hydrated
1-2 post natal home visits where I can provide support with breast feeding, show you how to bath your baby and much more. This will also provide time to talk about the birth and go over any details you wish to discuss further. (1-2 hours each time)
I will be available regularly by text and email to provide support and advice for up to 4 weeks after the birth
As I am currently being mentored my standard package cost is discounted at £350
If you would like, I can do a private 1:1 hypnobirthing class with you for an extra £150 or you can join my group class for a discounted amount of £100.
This package can be amended to suit you and your families needs.
