Prenatal and Birth support Doula
As a Birth Doula, having met with my clients prenatally, we work towards meeting the needs of both parents in order to enhance a positive birth experience. I provide continual emotional care during labour and can offer help and advice on positioning, deep relaxation and massage. My special interest and expertise lie with home births or births at a mid-wife led unit but I also support women birthing in hospitals or in a theatre.
Guidance and full support for partners and husbands are also provided so they are well informed and empowered to participate more fully in your pregnancy and birth and provide most assistance to you should they choose to.
As a fully Recognised Birth Doula, I offer the following Professional Prenatal package:
a) Two structured Prenatal visits (lasting about 2 hours each)
***plus informal meetings to get to know each other over a cuppa***
b) Unlimited phone calls/e-mail contact
c) Phone Support for 24 hours a day from 38 weeks of pregnancy
d) Labour Support
e) Postpartum Support
