Birth Doula

I cover Gloucestershire and parts of Wiltshire, Bristol and Oxfordshire

Investing in your birth

I offer a bespoke birth package created around a basic framework, tailoring my services to your particular needs .

You want a calm connected birth

Meeting at least twice antenatally we’ll get to know each other and dive deeply into what your expectations are for your birth and how you can achieve this.

You know knowledge is power! So I'll help you research your choices, support your ideas and navigate the maternity system.

 

Do you feel you need continuity pregnancy and birth?

You are free to call me at any point to voice concerns, ask questions or have a good moan about how knackered and enormous you feel (or tell me how wonderfully you're blooming)!

I’ll be there every step of the way providing compassionate, intelligent care and support to ensure you have a positive birth experience.

Unlike a midwife you call me as soon as you feel you’ve gone into labour - or even if you’re just not sure!

If you want me there I’ll come immediately or if you just want to curl up in bed for a bit I’ll be there when need me.

When you're ready I will be with you supporting you every step of the way.

 

Imagine your journey into motherhood supported by someone who is there for you and your baby

I will be with you throughout your birth. I will provide emotional and physical support if you need it or provide back up to your birth partner.

I will then stay with you and your little one until you are settled and happy for me to leave. You are still able to contact me at any point over the next two weeks after the birth if you have questions or concerns that you need help with.

Once you and your little one are settled at home I will visit you postnatally to ensure you're settling into this next episode of your lives together. If you have any issues then we can use this time to tackle them or I can help you secure any additional help you may need.
