Doulas support women and the whole family, ensuring that they have a positive experience of pregnancy, birth and in the first few weeks as a new mum.
Doulas do not take on a clinical role, but work within a team of midwives, healthcare practitioners to make sure your needs are met. Doulas act as the mothers 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.
Postnatal doulas can be booked antenatally or in response to a stressful or overwhelming birth, allowing the mother to rest and recover properly. They can help with a number of different household tasks, such as cooking food, doing the school run, taking care of the baby whilst mum naps. They are a great way to restore balance and relaxation to life again after having a baby!
At Pregma, we believe in achieving the best pregnancy and birth for you possible. We have a fantastic team of doulas who are ready to help and expertly guide you through your postnatal journey.
