Birth Doula

What's a Doula?

A birth doula is someone who attends a woman in labour. They begin working with expecting families in pregnancy, support them through childbirth, and postnatally in the fourth trimester.

This might be your first baby and you may be wondering how this whole birth thing goes. A doula has knowledge and experience attending many different kinds of births and settings, who can help you have the best experience possible, by helping you understand your choices, at every step, and supporting you fully in your wishes.

You may have had a baby before, and knowing that birth is no small task, that it would be advantageous to have another member on your team and interwoven into your plan-of-care.

I see doulas as sherpas to the intrepid explorer. We make sure you have everything needed. We help carry the baggage. We understand the changing terrains and how to navigate them. We have the experience and the stamina vital to things running as smoothly as possible. Mostly quiet and going unnoticed, I hold the space for you on your journey to motherhood.

How does it work?

If you're thinking about having a doula, we arrange an initial free 30 minute phone call, then if you want, we arrange to meet in person. That helps you get the information you need and then allows us both to see if we'd be a good fit together. Birth is as personal as it gets, and the most helpful aspect of how someone can be the best support person for you, is how comfortable, relaxed and safe you feel in their company. All of this is free. After which, you may decide you want to go ahead and book me as your doula. Then we can begin working together - so the earlier, the better!
