Because birth should be beautiful & supported
Doula Services
​​Hello, and welcome to my webiste 'Precious Begining's.  My name is Jade, and here you will find all the infomration you need in understadning the role of a doula and the support I offer.

The most important thing about having a doula is finding someone you feel comfortable with and someone you can trust in.  

The word Doula comes from the Ancient Greek, meaning 'a woman who serves', and is now used to refer to a trained and experienced professional, who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after birth; or who provides emotional and practical support during the postpartum period.

Why use a Doula?

Studies have shown that when Doulas attend the births of babies, labours are shorter, with fewer complications, babies are healthier and they breastfeed more easily.

A Doula:

  • Understands the physiology of birth and the emotional needs of a woman in labour.
  • Assists the woman in preparing for and carrying out her plans for birth.
  • Stays with the woman throughout labour, providing emotional support, physical comfort measures and an objective viewpoint, as well as helping the woman get the information she needs to make informed decisions.
  • Facilitates communication between the labouring woman, her partner and her clinical care providers.
  • Perceives her role as nurturing and protecting the woman's memory of the birth experience.
