Doula Services I truly believe that how you feel about your birth outcome is not what you have experienced but how you have experienced it. Although many births attended by a doula are natural it is possible that intervention is necessary. Either way having a doula to support you and your birth partner can help create the feelings of safety so important in such a turning point in your lives.
We would get to know each other in pregnancy to plan how you could best be supported in this exciting and daunting time. This maybe having chats over cups of tea, a walk on the meadow, meeting partners when they are home from work or meeting your older children...
I believe that my work as a doula is to feel in to how your needs in labour can be addressed. This can be in holding a safe space for you as well as labour massage, breathing techniques and visualisations. Sometimes just being there, a safe familiar presence, in silence is all that is needed. Of course in practical ways I can help you change position, keep you fed and watered, help the transition to the hospital if you are not having a home birth or passing on information to the medical professionals. Once your baby is born I will stay on for as long as you may need me, providing practical as well as emotional support. Birth doula fee £1000 (this includes at least 2 antenatal visits, the on call period and birth and 2 post natal visits)
