DOULA - BIRTH

I believe all women deserve to feel supported and cared for during their pregnancy and birth experience. Evidence supports the benefits this kind of consistent loving care can bring to women and babies in birth.

I support women in their birth choices by offering unbiased evidence and information around birth choices, knowledge and guidance around birth biomechanics, and a kind, loving and supportive presence to hold you on your birth journey. 

 

Let me support you to have a positive and empowered birth experience. 

"All that is needed for the majority of labours to go well is a healthy, pregnant woman who has loving support in labour, self-confidence and attendants with infinite patience"

- Sheila Kitzinger

BIRTH PACKAGE ESSENTIAL

I will work with you (and any potential partner/family) to support you in preparing for birth, working though your birth wishes and any worries or concerns. I will be with you throughout your birth, offering emotional and practical support. I will also visit you once your baby has arrived, so that we can reflect together on your birth experience and so I can offer any immediate support postnatally. 

What I offer:

  • 2-3 face-to-face meetings during pregnancy, to prepare for birth

  • Attendance and support at birth

  • 24/7 on call availability for 2wks before and 2wks after due date 

  • 1-2 post-natal visits

  • Use of Birth Pool (if desired)

  • Use of TENS machine (if desired)

Birth package investment = £1200.

BIRTH PACKAGE EXTRA

This Birth Package is very similar to the one above, but with a few extras. I'll still work with you during your pregnancy to plan for your birth, I'll still show up to support you (and your family) during your birth experience, and I'll come and visit you postnatally to see how you're all doing. I'll do all this, with a bit of extra time added in during your pregnancy for us to go deeper into any birth prep and getting to know each other. I've also added a beautiful postnatal ceremony that is lovely for closing our time together and your birth journey. 

What I offer:

  • 3-4 face-to-face meetings during pregnancy, to prepare for birth

  • Attendance and support at birth

  • 24/7 on call availability for 2wks before and 2wks after due date 

  • 1-2 post-natal visits

  • Postnatal massage and ritual

  • Use of Birth Pool (if desired)

  • Use of TENS machine (if desired)

Birth Package Extra investment = £1300.

BIRTH POWER HOUR

Don't want to hire a doula for the whole shabang, but you do want to get some unbiased support or guidance so you can feel awesome and ready for your birth? Then why not contact me for a one-off session to discuss anything that's coming up for you - it could be help with your birth plan, wanting to talk through homebirth options or any other areas around your birth or pregnancy...

What I offer:

  • One-to-one video call (or in person if local) where I listen and support you to work through your birth topic. 

Birth Power Hour Investment = £50ph
