As your doula, I promise to listen with a non-judgemental ear and provide practical help where needed. Your birth is your personal experience, and I will endeavour to act with compassion, empathy and kindness to assist you with your journey. I can help with hands-on support, coping measures, as well as protecting your birth space and easing communication with others. Whatever your initial strategy, whether that be to research everything or if you choose just to go with the flow, my aim would be for you to look back on your birthing experience with success, even if the path you ended up taking wasn’t quite the one you had initially planned.
As your birth doula, I offer the following:
- A minimum of two prenatal visits
- On-call from 38 weeks to 42 weeks
- Present at the birth
- Email and phone communication on the run-up to the birth and six weeks after
- A minimum of one postnatal visit.
