Birth Availability 2021

I choose to work with one family or birthing person at a time within the four week on-call period (from 38 weeks until 42 weeks of pregnancy unless agreed otherwise) and so my availability is very limited. Sometimes I make exceptions to this rule and work with a back-up Doula but that is not the norm.

I am usually booked months in advance when it comes to supporting a birth; it is not uncommon for me to be asked in the first trimester. 

I am currently fully booked until July 2021.

Postnatal Availability 2021

Due to Covid-19 I am limiting the amount of families that I support postnatally so that I can reduce the risk of accidentally passing the virus between families. I am fully booked for postnatal care until the end of June. This is of course subject to change.

Antenatal Availability 2021

I have ongoing availability for antenatal support as this can be done flexibly unlike Birth and Postnatal support.


You are welcome to pop me an e-mail or Facebook message at any time. After your initial enquiry, I'm happy to contact you by phone at a mutually convenient time.
