What is a Doula?
A Doula (pronounced Doo-lah) is a birth worker, typically without formal obstetric training, who is employed to provide guidance and support to a pregnant woman / person through pregnancy, during labour and birth and through the postpartum period.
This will also often include the provision of a full antenatal education / Hypnobirthing course. The provision of evidenced-based information to support choice. On going guidance and support to the mother / birthing person / partner / parents of the newborn baby.
Working as a doula can have it’s challenges, as most hospitals currently have a one birth partner rule. Finding creative ways to work is always an adventure, so I can offer a bespoke antenatal package and come to you at home when you go into labour, support your transfer to hospital and be available for postpartum support as soon as you require it. If you don’t have a partner or they are not available to support you in hospital – I can be there with you!
