“A doula believes in “mothering the mother” – enabling a woman to have feel confident and empowered during her pregnancy, birth and the early days as a new parent.” Nurtring Birth Doulas
What can I offer you as your doula?
As your birth Doula I would support you and your birth partner to understand the birthing processes and help you to plan for an empowered and positive birth experience.
Our pre-natal visits will involve discussing your ideas and desires for birth and making a plan that’s right for you. We will discuss comfort measures and relaxation and discuss your chosen birth environment.
I offer a free meet and greet to say hello and get to know each other better before you hire me as part of your birth team. Its important that you and your partner feel relaxed and comfortable in my company.
