Birth Support

A key part of a doula's work is birth support. In my birth support work, I provide practical, physical and emotional support during labour and birth. It is my aim to empower you to make the choices that are right for you in your birth, and to support you in a nurturing way. This support may involve:

  • Advocating for you and your wishes with medical professionals.

  • Reminding you and your birth partner of the options available to you, and providing information.

  • Protecting your space and creating a calm and nurturing environment to make you feel as comfortable as possible, such as setting lighting, music, bringing drinks, pillows, cold compresses.

  • Supporting your partner to empower them to provide the best support to you that they can.

  • Reminding you of supportive breathing techniques.

  • Taking photographs for you, should you wish, on your mobile device.

  • Use of my tens machine to provide natural pain relief, if desired.

  • Working with discretion and only be present when my support is desired or needed.

Birth support is included in all of my doula Packages and any of my other offerings can be included in my doula services to make a tailored package just for you - from pre or postnatal yoga sessions, baby massage, crystal healing, holistic sleep coaching, meditation and breathwork.
