Birth and labour is a very important time in a woman’s life and research shows that
continuous one to one support throughout pregnancy and birth can improve outcomes and reduce a need for interventions.
Your Doula will be available via email or phone for any questions you may want to ask and can be on call 24/7 from 37 weeks until baby is born and can attend your labour and birth of your baby as you wish.
We do not take the place of your partner or midwife but we are there to support you, and your partner, through the process. We offer a familiar face supporting you, unconditionally.
After the birth of your baby we are be to support you physically and emotionally to ease your transition into parenthood. We can talk about how exactly we could best support you.
