Complimentary Phone Consultation - 30min

When hiring a doula, it is vital to find the right 'fit' to support you. This is why I offer you the opportunity to have a 'no-obligation chat so that you can ask questions and see if we feel comfortable with each other.

Hiring a doula is a decision that can change your birth experience, so you want to feel confident in your decision.

These visits are either in your home or a coffee shop. The visits are used to get to know each other better and I use this time to provide birth education and explore your birth preferences, labour positions, how your partner can best support you during labour etc.

DURING LABOUR

Support you over the phone in early labour until you would like me to come to your house or meet you at the hospital or birth centre. During this time I provide comfort measures such as massage, acupressure, breathing and relaxation techniques etc. to help you remain calm and keep you focused After the birth I will stay with you until you and your new family want to be alone - usually 1-3 hours.

POST PARTUM

1 Postnatal visit in your home (approx 1 hr) dedicated to providing breastfeeding and newborn care as well as an opportunity to debrief your birth and answer any questions you may have. Phone, text, email, messenger or zoom support for the remainder of your fourth trimester.
