Birth Doula Support
Please note that I am now on Maternity Leave and will be returning to work around July 2017. Please get in touch to see if I could support you!
I first started attending births in 2005. Its always a huge honour to be with a couple during such a special time in their lives and something I hope I'll always be able to do.
I am very lucky to have a wide variety of experience in different scenarios and situations, including births at home, in hospitals and birth centres, in water, using hypnosis, VBACs, births with forceps/ventouse, inductions, elective and emergency Caesareans, births without any pain relief, with epidural and/or other pain relief… as well as many more!
As Doula support is so personal and each family's needs and wishes are different, my birth Doula support is flexible and tailored to suit you and your choices. As a guide, it would usually include:
I strongly believe Parents are capable of making good decisions for themselves and their babies, and support them in their decisions – whatever they are.
Price ~ £950 (paid as £475 at booking and the remaining £475 by 38 weeks when your 'on call' period starts).
Please contact me to find out more.
- Private 1:1 Antenatal sessions can be arranged with me at £25 per hour. This is totally flexible - we can do as much or as little as you want, and can cover whatever it is YOU personally need to cover. This can be especially helpful for couples who are already doing a Wise Hippo course with me (and would like to learn more general baby skills or about breastfeeding), couples who have hired me for Postnatal Support (and would like to get to know me a bit better and learn some skills to help care for their baby once she/he arrives), as well as families who I'm not working with in any other capacity but would like some flexible fun antenatal sessions on days & times to suit them. £25 per hour.
- If you're in or near to labour, haven't booked me but find you need an Emergency Birth Partner, I could help. Please get in touch. £450 for emergency support through your birth.
