    What is a doula?

    Support for expectant families

    I'm available to support and advocate for you. With over 12 years experience working with birthing families I can help you find the information you need in order to make the right decisions for your birth.

    Why a doula?

    Doulas offer support through pregnancy, during birth and to new parents.

     

    Continuity of Care

    I can be there for you throughout pregnancy, during your birth and for the first 6 weeks of life with your new baby (or longer if you need it).

     

    Mind and body support

    Every doula has a different approach and specialisms. My background is in movement and bodywork.

     

    Advocacy

    Being an advocate for you means: I will support your choices, listen to you and help you gather information to make informed decisions.

     

    Birth Coach

    A doula can help coach and cheerlead you through labour and birth. It's important to get to know your doula and to feel comfortable with them during these big moments.
