What can I offer you as your doula

During birth

As your birth doula I would support you and your birth partner to understand the birthing processes, signposting you to evidence based information in order to help you to plan for an empowered and positive birth experience. 

​During our pre-natal visits we can discuss your aspirations for birth, making a plan that’s right for you.  We will discuss comfort measures, relaxation and discuss your chosen birth environment.

We will also look at a post-natal plan, making sure you feel supported into the 4th trimester. 

I can offer an initial meet and greet to say hello and get to know each other better before you hire me as part of your birth team.  It's important that you and your partner feel relaxed and comfortable in my company.

Postnatally

The weeks after birth (4th trimester) are just as important as your pregnancy. 

​As your postnatal doula, I will offer you the time to rest and recover from your birth, I can support you to understand your baby’s needs and establish feeding, should you require that. 

I will be there to provide you with an extra pair of hands if your partner goes back to work, or if you have other children at home.

I can offer practical help around the home, run errands & accompany you on your first trips into the world. 

I will be by your side, offering a warm, understanding and non-judgemental listening ear, guiding you into those early days of parenthood.

Whatever the reason, I’m your girl!
