Birth Doula

Call me on 07762 118215 Or fill out a contact form

As a birth Doula I serve as a birth companion and information source to give you and your partner the added comfort of additional support throughout labour. I am there as a guide to support your choices.
I give emotional support from home to hospital and ease the transition into the hospital environment, whether you want to give birth naturally, with medication, or are planning a home birth or a C-section, I use my experience, knowledge and instincts to help you keep relaxed and feel confident. I will remain with you throughout labour, no matter how long that may be, and stay with you after the birth of your baby.
I can work just as effectively if it is a home birth and I will wait until baby has taken the first feed and help you with establishing breastfeeding or formula feeding if that is what you have chosen to do. With my support and assistance, you can be sure that you will have the best possible environment for you to have an empowering birth.
