This is a complete package which includes two antenatal preparation sessions. An on call period starting 10 days before your baby's due date. Attendance at the birth until your baby arrives and you are ready for me to leave. One postnatal meeting to debrief your baby's birth (and for baby snuggles!) usually during the first week of birth. As your birth doula I will be on call from 10 days before your baby's estimated date of delivery (EDD) until the arrival of your baby. During this time I will be available to you via phone call, text or email. I will not book any other expectant mothers during this time so if you book me I will be there! I will attend your home as and when requested and will stay with you, be that at home, hospital, wherever, until your baby is born and you are happy for me to leave, this might be 6 hours or it might be 48!
During your labour I will provide a calm, reassuring presence. I have worked on several labour wards and in home from home units so I know and understand the environment. I talk the same language as the midwives and obstetricians so I can explain to you what they mean. I can offer information backed up by research to help you make informed choices about your care. I always work with your other health professionals to make your birth experience a positive one.
As your birth doula I can offer loads of information and useful articles and loans from my ever increasing doula library. I can recommend other local experts e.g. homeopaths, physios, nutritionists, acupuncturists.
I am happy to travel anywhere within an hour of Brackley Deposit payable on booking 50% and the remainder to be paid on or before the second antenatal appointment.
