A Birth Doula is a trusted woman who attends the birthing mother throughout her labour and birth. She provides, not only continuity of care for the mother & her partner, but also support both physically and emotionally to facilitate the birth experience in whichever way the mother wishes.

Evidence has shown that the attendance of a known and trusted birth supporter increases the incidence of a normal, progressive and manageable labour and birth and reduces the need for unnecessary intervention during the labour and the chances of an instrumental or surgical birth.

Having attended hundreds of births as a midwife over my 20+ years’ experience I have personally witnessed the effect a constant trusted supporter has on the process of birth.    I am experienced in supporting water birth, home birth, planned hospital birth or planned/emergency caesarean section.  I maintain an informed but non-judgemental approach to ensure that the birthing mother remains at the centre of care and that her preferences are respected.

My role as a Birth Doula is strictly non-clinical and focused on being supportive to the mother and her partner throughout labour and birth alongside the midwifery or medical staff who are responsible for the clinical care of mother and baby.

 

My Birth Doula package includes:

. an initial meeting with you to talk through your choices and to ensure that you are happy to choose me to attend your birth.



. being on call for your labour and birth from around 37 weeks of pregnancy until your baby is born. 



. a home visit following the birth to discuss your feelings about your birth experience plus help with any feeding and settling in issues.
