Birth Doula Services

Throughout our lives we meticulously plan and invest in our experiences, from once in a lifetime trips, to weddings, and everything in between. Why should your birth experience be any different?

I offer two birth packages, one with a deeper level of investment to the other. Both follow a framework that can be adapted and changed to suit your individual needs. Your experience of pregnancy and birth is a unique and deeply personal experience, and with that in mind I strive to provide compassionate and individualised support while I join you on this wild and beautiful ride into parenthood.

Birth Support 1

  • 2 antenatal sessions where we have the chance to bond, discuss birth preferences, comfort measures and help you prepare mentally for birth. I want to hear all your hopes and dreams! These sessions will also be an opportunity to discuss having a nourishing postpartum period and to discuss how you see your feeding journey unfolding with your little one
  • Access to my collection of books focusing on pregnancy, birth and the fourth trimester
  • Access to birth ball and TENS machine and my collection of aromatherapy essential oils
  • On Call 24/7 from 10 days before your EDD until little one arrives
  • Support throughout the duration of your labour, protecting the all important Golden Hour after birth and supporting with baby’s first feed
  • A postnatal session where we meet again so I can swoon over your beautiful newborn and discuss how your birth unfolded. I can also provide breastfeeding support/responsive feeding support if you would like it
  • A nourishing postpartum meal
  • Available for phone support anytime of day for 48 hours after your birth

Birth Support 2

These sessions will also be an opportunity to discuss having a nourishing postpartum period and to discuss how you see your feeding journey unfolding with your little one

  • A postnatal session to debrief your birth experience, have newborn cuddles and support with any questions you have around newborn feeding
  • Further postnatal session which can be tailored to whatever support you feel you need. Whether it be a hot bubble bath, a nutritious meal, feeding support or a much needed nap, this session is an opportunity for you to rest and be taken care of
  • Available for phone support for 1 week after your birth
  • Nourishing postpartum meals to fill your freezer with. Having to think about what to cook for dinner just isn’t something you need in your life when you’re busy with a newborn!

Package prices begin at £850

These packages can be tailored to suit you, if you feel you need extra antenatal or postnatal sessions added to your birth package, this can be provided at an additional fee.

I had a doula present for the birth of my son, I experienced first hand what a wonderful impact they have on an individual’s birth experience. I feel very passionately about a doula being an option for any family. With this in mind I am happy to create a payment plan that works for you.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or would like to discuss payment options.

Shared Care

If your estimated due date coincides with another client of mine, it is still absolutely possible for us to work together. This is where shared care comes in. Another doula and I would work closely together to provide antenatal and postnatal care, and we would both be “on call” for your birth, you can rest assured knowing one of us will be there.

I work closely alongside two other wonderful birth workers to provide shared care for clients, I feel their values and ethos reflects my own. You can learn more about them here:
