A doula is a woman who is experienced in childbirth who provides advice, information, emotional support, and physical comfort to a mother before, during and after labour.
I offer a service where by I come to visit you at home in the early stages of labour to offer support, advice and comfort to both you and your partner. For women who have chosen to deliver their baby in the hospital setting it can be confusing to know when is the best time to go to hospital. I can help by attending to you at home, monitor your contraction rate, the babies heartbeat, and the progression of early labour to advise you when the most approprite time to go into the hospital would be. I can offer suggestions on positioning, and
I also offer a service whereby I attend the hospital with you as your birthing companion (as well as your partner).Many women find that by having an english speaking midwife attend hospital with them, offering support, explanation, guidance and advice can be invaulable. I can help exlain to you what is happening and support you emotionally throughout your entire labour and birth.
