As your antenatal doula I can be there for appointments, classes, and moral support. I am able to loan books and source information on your rights and choices. As part of the standard package you will get 6 antenatal visits. This involves getting to know you, your family including your pets and a fair amout of snacks and drinks.
You can contact me at any point from the moment you think you are in labour and I will be there to support you. I do not come between you and your birth partner (s) but rather support you all. During birth my aim is to "hold your space" so unless you request my physical support my role is to "be".
During the postnatal period, I provide practical and emotional support tailored to your and your family unit's needs, I can signpost you to external services if needed and support your and your baby's needs while you adjust to your new environment.
Individualised support for you and family when experiencing the devastation of baby loss at any time in your pregnancy, for any reason. This support can be emotional, practical and informational. I can accompany you to doctor and hospital appointments, help you prepare for birth, support you throughout labour, birth, and beyond.
