Birth Services

What can I do for you?

Each family is different and so I tailor my support to what you need - it's not a one size fits all!

I offer different Birth and Postnatal packages to suit different needs and budgets.

  • Pregnancy and Birth Support - Doula Plus (additional support and services)

  • Pregnancy, Birth and Postnatal Support (for support through pregnancy, your birth and 20 hours postnatally, too)

For birth and/or postnatal support, we'll have an initial consultation which is completely free so that we can have a chat for around an hour to see if we 'click' and if I'm the right Doula for you.

For my birth clients only, I have a professional birth pool that can be hired free of charge.

Money is a necessary evil; I have a family to support, too. An initial deposit is required to secure your booking but the amount is negotiable and the rest can be paid in instalments rather than one lump sum; I want you to get the support you need and money shouldn't be a barrier to this. All prices are listed under the services below for transparency.

Pregnancy and Birth Support

  • Signposting to evidence based research so that you can make informed decisions about your care

  • Rebozo for comfort during pregnancy and labour

  • Free birth pool hire for home births

  • Photos to remember your birth - I am not a professional photographer but I'm happy to take photos for you

The service you get is entirely tailored to your needs. I'm there to serve you and your birth partner if applicable, to ensure you feel listened to and supported in your choices. 

I support your birth, whether that is at home or in hospital, whether it's in the pool or an elective caesarean; I support your decision.

I go on call 24 hours a day for four weeks from 38 weeks (or sooner where baby/babies are expected to arrive before then) once the balance has been paid. That's 672 hours, 28 days, 4 whole weeks at your beck and call. If your baby arrives sooner than 38 weeks then I will do my best to be there to support you.
