Birth & Postnatal Doula
Emotional and practical support
95% of our subconscious conditioned responses are embedded in the last trimester of pregnancy and the first 7 years of life. To approach pregnancy and mothering mindfully gives your child the most amazing headstart in life.
Birth & Postnatal Doula
Emotional and practical support for women and couples through pregnancy, birth & postnatally. Private Birth preparation sessions also available in your home.
I only take on one birth client at any one time, so I can be sure to be able to be with you (and not at someone else’s birth).
My Birth Support package is £1500
Please contact me to check availability and to request full details of the services I offer.
The first few days and weeks with a new baby are possibly the most transformational in your life. You can quite literally feel as if your world has been turned upside down. Some new mums and dads are lucky to step into this with absolute confidence but this is not everyone’s experience. My support service is designed to bring you peace of mind and instill confidence in your own innate parenting skills. (Yes, you do have them!!) There is SO much advice out there – most is well intentioned from family, friends and professionals. It can be really challenging to take the courage to listen to your own instincts when you are hearing a multitude of differing opinions.
The postnatal visits are in your home and typically cover topics such as feeding, sleeping, winding, swaddling, bathing etc as dictated by your needs and concerns. I am also very happy to cook a meal, attend to the laundry etc – anything that makes you feel looked after!
£25 per hour, minimum booking 3 hours.
Birth preparation sessions at your home (preferably with your partner if they intend to be present at the birth) to discuss your birth preferences & expectations, birth physiology & answer any questions you may have about the birth or care of your newborn.
Sessions include learning techniques that may help you have a more positive birth experience – from physical positions and exercises that can be useful, breathing techniques and deep relaxation techniques to help you manage your energy levels and stay connected to your power during labour and birth.
Each session is approximately 2 hours, in your home, and costs £120, payable in full at time of booking.
First time parents – 2 sessions are recommended. For birth refreshers 1 or 2 sessions are recommended depending on previous birth experience.
For additional information, you can buy my ‘Essential Birth Preparation’ book for £15.
Words cannot even begin to describe the deep gratitude and appreciation we feel. Thank you for all your support and guidance through this amazing journey. We could not have asked for a more perfect birth experience!MT
