What is a Birth Doula?

  • A Birth Doula is dedicated to supporting and reassuring a birthing person and their families through pregnancy, birth and the immediate postpartum time.

  • They are trained and experienced in techniques to support you mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually throughout the antenatal time.

  • The Doula knows how important it is to keep the environment quiet and undisturbed, so that the birth hormones can flow in a way that encourages natural birth. In this way, you can fully tune into your intuition, strength and power.

  • The Doula understands how physical and emotional support can help you to connect with your own inner confidence and courage. The trust developed between you and your Doula is unique.

  • They will help you to make your own informed choices by signposting you to evidence based information and research. This is your birth and you are in control of the choices that you need to make. Your Doula will support your choices.

  • Your Doula will advocate for your choices, with an up to date knowledge of your rights, current regulations and evidence based research.

  • After the amazing journey to meet your baby, your Doula will encourage you to take your time with skin to skin contact, to connect with your new child and enjoy your first moments together, undisturbed.

  • Most of all, your Doula wants you to feel cared for and listened to, respected and loved.

  • They are here for you.
