Birth Doula Services
Our doulas are here to provide a calming presence, supporting you through your birth and even postnatally.
Birth Doula Services
Doulas act as the mother’s advocate through birth and help empower the mother to make informed decisions about their personal pregnancy journey that will best suit them and their body.
Birth Doulas will often meet with the women and families prior to birth, helping to prepare the perfect birth plan. As the birth approaches, normally around 38 weeks, the doula will go on call 24/7 to make sure they are available for the birth.
During birth, a doula provides emotional, practical support to their client and is constantly adapting. The doula can offer help and assistance on breathing, relaxing, movement and positioning. The doula will work with the midwives and doctors to ensure a comforting, nurturing and assuring presence within the birthplace.
