Doula Services

I am recent a member of The Scottish Doula Network which is a community of wonderful birth workers. As such, I am currently mentored and am working on becoming a better support system for you. It is always a good idea to talk to a couple of doula's to make sure you find someone you love and who you feel completely comfortable with.  

 

A deposit of £150 is required to book my services, after which we can design a payment plan that works for everyone. Before any deposit is paid, I will meet with you for a coffee so that we can get a feel for each other and make sure we will be able to work well together. Having a Doula is a special relationship and its important to make sure you feel comfortable and happy with me. 

If you would like to discuss any of the care options available or would like to make a bespoke care package, please get in touch and we can make a plan that fits you. I am always happy to work out a payment plan that suits you best - please feel free to reach out. No matter how I support you, I will be able to provide you with information and give you evidence based content for you to make the best decision for you and your baby. 

 

As I am currently a mentored doula, I would ask that you could please give me feedback after I have supported you.

Birth Planning Sessions

Putting together a birth plan can be really helpful in two ways; one - in that it gives you and your partner a written reference when in the heat of labour, and two - it helps you figure out what you do not want to happen during your labour. It can also be helpful to have a chat with your partner about the postnatal period after baby has arrived. There is often a big focus on baby's direct arrival, however it is important to plan for when you settle into your new journey with a young child. 

When you are planning, ask yourself 'What is my ideal birth scenario?' and see what your gut tells you. 

You can click on the Birth Plan and Postnatal Plan buttons to download a free template to work from. I am available to help you work through your birth options for £150 as seen below: 

 

  • Five x1h sessions to work through all of your birth options such as:​ birth locations, pain relief, environment, positions, induction, birth and postnatal preparation. 

  • The sessions can be booked in line with your calendar.
