PACKAGES & SERVICES
I have chosen the services I offer from my years of expeience of working with families & what new parents have told me what they really need.
You can select as little or as much support as you want from my stand alone services, combined services or my all inclusive packages.
Current Doula fees reflect that I am a Mentored Doula & can offer them to you at a discount for a limited period of time whilst I am working towards becoming a Recognised Doula.
My fee also takes into consideration my years of professional experience & qualifications, in working with families & Breastfeeding Support.
5% of my Fee goes towards a fund I have set up for women who cannot afford to have a Doula, which will enable them to access my services for free & only my out of pocket expenses are covered.
Please contact me for details on Fees, I am always happy to answer any questions & to help you select the best service to fit your needs & requirements
Birth Preparation Session
Gaining Birth Preparation knowledge, learning about how Birth actually works, will instill confidence in you to achieve a satisfying Birth experience & will make a straightforward
physiological Birth more likely.
A private 4 hr Birth Preparation Session can take place in the comfort of your own home.
I can give you answers to your pregnancy & Birth questions with unbiased & personalised information.
We can discuss such things as, previous births, maternity services, physiological childbirth & the role of hormones in labour & birth. Caesarean, induction & assisted birth if this is applicable to you.
Also self help methods, comfort measures & pain management options. We will look at how to avoid interventions for a physiological birth & alternative ways of coping with difficulties.
I can suggest suitable positions, Hypnobirthing breathing & relaxation techniques & how best to create a supportive environment to encourage straightforward Labour & Birth, a planned 'Gentle' Caesarean (1) Video (2) or a calm, relaxed Induction, if either become necessary.
We can formulate a Birth Preference Plan, covering all your hopes, wishes & requirements & covering all eventualities. I can guide you on what questions to ask Health Professionals, so you can gain the answers you need.
I can help give your partner a clearly defined role, so you are both completely in tune, they know what to do, recognise when to do it & how to carry it out.
Whether you are planning straightforward physiological Labour & Birth or a highly medicalised one, with the right information, preparation & support you can have a positive & deeply satisfying Birth experience.
