We have the opportunity to meet up a few times, normally twice allows us to get to know one another.
During these sessions (normally around 2 hours) I'd like to get to know your birth plans and can help put this together with you, offering information on everything from how to use equipment like the birth ball efficiently through to pain relief, try out some breathing and positions for each stage of your labour.
From around 38 weeks gestation I'll be available to you 24/7. If anything unexpected happens or changes have to be made to your birth plan due to a situation or occurrance in your pregnancy, I ask that you let me know asap. I can offer information and a guiding friendly word on the telephone, especially if you are worried or concerned at all.
Benefits of having me!
As your Birth Doula I can also offer you prenatal massages from the first trimester through to the last and maternity reflexology to support you through pregnancy, prepare your body for labour and if necessary, support a spontanious labour before a medical induction is needed.
Once I have joined you in labour I stay with you throughout your labour offering support to you and your partner when needed.
I will visit you at home to ensure you are comfortable and offer helpful advice if needed. I am happy to bring a meal with me, hoover your house, wash up, debrief the birth, support breastfeeding, whatever you need, just ask. I've been through it with my baby who was born naturally in a breech position so there wont be much you can tell me about how you're feeling or which bits hurt that will surprise me!
