What Is A Doula?

Doulas offer emotional and practical support to parents in pregnancy, during birth and after the baby is born. We work with you to help make sure you have all the information and support you want in preparing for the arrival of your little one(s). You can think of us as your friend for birth – supportive, kind and ready to listen to you.

Parents who use a doula say they feel more supported in the journey to becoming parents. Those who are not having their first child still find so much benefit in having a doula.

A doula walks alongside you through whatever your experience is – including homebirth, hospital birth, a planned or emergency caesarean, adoption, surrogacy or pregnancy loss. I also offer doula services to those having a termination; a doula can be so invaluable at this time.

A doula is there to provide support and a helping hand in breastfeeding, chestfeeding, bottle feeding, when your baby is in NICU or when you are at home trying to get to grips with a life of endless nappy changes, new sleep patterns and getting to know this new addition to your family!
