As your
Birth Doula

MY ROLE IS TO PUT YOU AT

THE CENTRE OF ALL I DO

My Complete Birth Doula Service will fully prepare you for Labour & Birth & help to equip you for the adjustment to life with a new baby.

My compassionate care & commitment to you begins in pregnancy, continues throughout the duration of your Labour & Birth, then extends until your baby is 8 weeks old.

My focus is to help you to have a relaxed pregnancy, a positive, safe birth experience without fear & a calm, relaxed supportive postnatal period.

RESEARCH TELL US THAT OVER 90% OF WOMEN HAVING A HEALTHY PREGNANCY

 are able to have an uncomplicated Birth without needing any medical intervention & having continued physical & emotional support in labour from a Doula makes birth safer and healthier for mother and baby.

Some women have complex needs in pregnancy, and for some women a caesarean or assisted birth may become a medical necessity.

I ease any concerns by working in collaboration with Health Professionals ensuring mothers receive optimum care & have their preferences respected without undermining medical advice or guidance.

Whether you have a straightforward physiological Labour & Birth or a highly medicalised one, with the right information, preparation & support you can have a positive & deeply satisfying Birth experience.

I do not judge or critisise your choices on how you prefer to labour birth or parent. I offer evidence based & impartial information & fully support your decisions.​

I am prepared for whatever Birth,
my Body & my baby needs
