Doula Services

Services & Fees

​​Labour & Birth Doula

I offer a labour and birth package which includes 2 prenatal visits lasting 2-3 hours each, in which we will make a birth plan, go through pain relief options, what your exact likes/dislikes for your labour are, also any concerns you may have. We will also learn relaxation techniques from breathing to positions and many more.

I will be on CALL for you 24/7 from the day you turn 37 weeks pregnant until you deliver.
After birth once you and baby are settled (maximum 3 hours) I will leave you to bond and enjoy this very special time.
I will visit you again around days 3-4 postpartum when your ready, and will hand over your birth story I would have written up for you, so you may reflect on this wonderful journey.

Once hired I offer unlimited phone advise and support throughout your pregnancy up until 1 month after birth at no extra cost.
My job and passion is to support you in every aspect of motherhood.
if required I am able to direct your partner during labour, so they can also feel involved in supporting you.
I am also able to drive you to your chosen hospital if needed at no extra cost.  This package is currently £600
