Above all else my goal is to ensure my clients experience a positive, informed and empowered pregnancy and birth by offering support, information and care in a non-judgmental and non-prescriptive way. Whether it be an at home water birth, or elective cesarean, my support is inclusive of all people, families and choices.
This is your journey and your story.
My services for this include:+ Initial meeting to see if we are the right fit for each other (this is free of charge)+ 3-4 prenatal visits in which we get to know each other better, we discuss at length the type of birth you envision, any concerns or fears, cover child birth basics, help define your birth preferences and provide you with any further information, sources, and support that you require to help make you confident in your birthing decisions+ At your request, I can attend prenatal appointments+ Support via phone, whatsapp & email+ On call support from 37 weeks until birth+ From whenever you feel you want me as your labour begins, until a couple of hours after the birth I will be there to provide physical and emotional support throughout+ At least one postnatal meeting to discuss the birth and see how everyone is doing
+ I'm also available for private antenatal sessions and postnatal support.
Doulas are as different as the birthing people we serve. Out of all the variables doulas may have (length of practice, type of training, extras etc), how you and your partner feel with that person is the most important. If I am not the right doula for you it's my pleasure to help refer you to one that may be.
