Birth Doula Services

Doulas really DO make a difference. Studies show that by having one you are LESS likely to have a Caesarean birth, an instrumental delivery, the need for an epidural (or other painkillers) and are less likely to be induced. Having doula support means you are more likely to feel satisfied with your birth experience, more likely to succeed at breastfeeding and less likely to experience postnatal depression.

 

I have a very broad range of experience, working in many different scenarios and in all different settings- in hospital, at home and in theatre, for over a decade.

Every client and their partner has specific requirements so my support for you will be bespoke but here are the basics of what you can expect from me:

  • Email and Phone support throughout pregnancy

  • At least 4 antenatal sessions (this can include my Hypnobirthing course)

  • Information, resources & signposting

  • Debrief of any previous birth experiences

  • Help preparing you mentally and physically for birth

  • On-Call 24/7 from 38 weeks (flexible depending on circumstances)

  • Personalised labour support for you & your partner

  • Postnatal visit for feeding support & birth debrief

  • On-going phone and email support

  • Use of my professional birth pool (for home births, depending on availability)

Choosing your doula is very personal, what each family requires from me can really vary so let’s meet, have a good chin-wag and see if we fit together. I can explain further how my services work, you can ask any questions you have and we can see if we "click" 

I only take on a limited number of birth clients per year and am often booked far in advance so if you are interested in this service it's never too early to enquire.

Sarah massaged my back through each contraction knowing exactly where to place her thumbs and add pressure and she was so amazing, supportive and sometimes I wasn't even aware that she was in the room. She gave me all the support/drinks/help that I needed at the exact moment I needed it...almost predicting what would help me through each breath. It may sound a bit hippie, but we were really working as one.
