PRICING

Birth Doula package: £1000

I charge a flat rate for a comprehensive but simple package, there are no hidden fees or complicated options, but I can discuss extra support if you have something in mind. Although I'm not currently offering post-partum packages, I will be there to provide informal friendly support via text for few months post-birth.

Whilst I'm still in my Doula UK mentoring period I am offering a reduced rate for my hypnobirthing course, and a extra discount when you book it alongside my doula package. This means for a limited time you can book my hypnobirthing course + birth doula package for only £1050 all in.

Please email me to book, or discuss paying in instalments. All packages require a non-refundable deposit payment of £100 upfront.

What's included in the package?

  • 24 hr remote support

Through your pregnancy I'll be available by text any time you need me

  • Three in-person antenatal appointments

I provide a non-judgemental safe space for you and your birth partner(s) to cover the basics and go deeper into personalised work. Preferably in your home or another private place of your chosing. During this period I will give you full access to my library of resources, and guide you through them. The sessions last between 1-2 hrs. If you would like me to attend any other antenatal appointments with you, they will be included in this time

  • Support during labour, birth and immediate post-partum period

I will be on call for two weeks around either side of your 'guess date', ready to make my way to support you in your labour. I'll arrive with any pre-agreed aids and I won't leave until you are comfortably settled with your baby. This includes staying with you through any medical intervention you may require, and making sure baby has their first feed.

Evidence suggests 

that having a partner 

who's not a member of 

hospital staff,or the mother's circle, has a positive effect on the length of labour, interventions used, and how the birthing person feels about their experience

Congratulations! You've already begun to lay the foundations for your life as a parent. You may be feeling like you want support focused on the things you're going through in the present, or maybe you're looking forward towards the birth. The centre of both of these feelings can best be described as adjusting to transition. During this time I can provide a fresh pair of un-biased eyes, helping you look at where you are now, and where you would like to be at the end of your birthing journey. As my client you will always take the lead on what you want to explore, and I can support you with evidence-based practical information, links to professionals in your local area, or just a good old-fashioned shoulder to lean on. This is also when we start our hypnobirthing sessions (if you choose this service) to find out more about hypnobirthing click here.

BIRTH

There's only one rule for birthing, I'm not a medical professional, and a doula is not a substitute for a midwife. Outside of that there are a myriad of ways you might want me to support you during the birth of your baby, physically, emotionally, or even from outside of the birthing room. Maybe looking after your birthing partner(s), or any young children who live with you. It's always more than preferable to have explored these options before the main event, but it's never too late to reach out to me for support as long as it's before labour has started.

In short, I am your advocate. Here to stand in your corner, provide non-judgemental holistic support, and empower you make informed choices for you and your baby.

What's a doula?

 
 
 
 

 

I was trained by Maddie McMahon, and graduated from her Developing Doulas course in Feb 2020. I qualified as a hypnobirthing practitioner that Nov training with Nicola Nelson. I was so lucky to be trained by such phenomenal experts in their fields! However I would agree with other doulas who say their journey to starts way before their formal training.

 

I'm at the beginning of my official mentoring process with Doula UK
