As your doula I will help you and your partner to approach your birth with confidence, supporting you emotionally and practically during your pregnancy, at the birth and after your baby is born.
My birth package is £700 and can be tailored to your needs, but typically includes the following:
- 2-3 visits before the birth lasting a minimum of 2 hours per visit. During these we can get to know each other and talk about your hopes, fears, worries and your expectations of the birth and of me as your doula. We can discuss any previous births and the choices you have during your pregnancy, the birth and afterwards. I can help you to put together a birth plan so you feel really prepared, covering everything from sweeps to creating your perfect birth environment. If you are unsure about anything during your pregnancy, I can source trusted, evidence-based information to help you make informed decisions and I will support all of your decisions without judgement.
- I will be available for you to contact me by email, phone or message anytime during the day throughout your pregnancy.
- I will be on call for you day and night from 38 weeks and will be there to support you and your partner, if applicable, during your labour and the birth.
- I will stay with you after the birth until you are settled with your baby.
- 1-2 postnatal visits lasting a minimum of two hours where I will be there for you and your family. We can talk through the birth and how you are feeling. I can offer breastfeeding support and I can help with your baby, giving you time to rest. I can also help with siblings and around the home as needed.
I am happy to accept payment by instalments if this helps.
