Birth And Postnatal Services
Please look at my Homepage to discover how I have adapted my Birth and Postnatal Services whilst we all live in these challenging times. I am still committed to helping you feel heard, supported and affirmed at every stage of your pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period.
As your Birth Doula I offer at least 2 antenatal sessions of about 90 minutes to discuss your birth plan, help you find information if needed and to build a relationship with you. If you would like to meet more frequently I am very flexible and am happy to be contacted if you have any questions or worries. I will be on call from 38 weeks until your baby has arrived and will be contactable by email, text and phone from the time of booking. I will come and be a continuous support during labour and throughout your birth. Once you are home I will visit to see how you are settling into life with a newborn and debrief your birth experience if you would like to.
