Doula Services


Birth doula

As an experienced birth doula, I offer you attentive, continuous, loving support from the time you first get in touch to the time you are settled back home with your new baby.

After our initial face to face chat to see if we click, you will receive three antenatal sessions specifically tailored to your needs covering everything you need to feel prepared for your birth and to meet your baby.

You also receive a free place on my all day birth confidence workshop (see under workshops for more details)

You also get your very own copy of 'How to Have a Baby' by Natalie Meddings and an intuitively selected birthing crystal

24/7 on call birth support from 38 weeks until your baby is born

Attendance at your birth up until you feel settled usually after the first good feed

A postnatal visit to ask any baby questions and discuss the birth (a full debrief can be done at a later date)

Unlimited phone and email support as and when needed until 6 weeks postnatally 

A few loving extras as well as free hire of a tens machine/access to affordable birth pools/birth book library loans

My complete birth package is £1400 

Please email me on odulamore@gmail.com if you have any questions

  • I also offer a bare essentials birth only package for those seeking just in birth support for £1000 which includes one antenatal visit, on call support, attendance at the birth and one postnatal visit

  • My antenatal only support package for £400 offers you two antenatal sessions to prepare for your birth and gather your birth preferences as well as unlimited phone and email support until you have your baby including phone support in labour if needed.

  • My VBAC birth prep package is the same as above including the Three Step Rewind Technique for £500 (with birth support if needed being booked later on at an additional cost)


Postnatal doula

As a postnatal doula my role is to meet your needs whatever they may be

Caring for you could be looking after your baby so you can nap, shower, eat hands free

Caring for baby could be bathing, feeding, taking them for walks

I can attend appointments with you, support you with breastfeeding out and about

Holistically care for you with nourishing foods, offer holistic remedies for you and baby, signposting to excellent local practitioners, breastfeeding support...light chores...I'm there for you.

Postnatal sessions are £75 for a morning or an afternoon (approx 3 hours)


Pregnancy & Postnatal yoga

My yoga style is informal, relaxed and gentle.  Nourishing the mind as much as the body with breathing exercises, meditation, stretching and relaxation working with the energy centres in the body to nourish you from the inside out.

My pregnancy yoga classes are at the Konasana Dome in The Medicine Garden in Cobham

Every Saturday @ 10.00am-11.00am

I am also available for private one to one sessions at £40 an hour

Or NCT groups can hire me for private group sessions (£10 per Mum, minimum of 4 Mums)

All equipment is provided

My birth clients get a complimentary session


Birth confidence workshops

Our birth confidence workshops have been running for over three years now and are a special day out of your busy life for you to focus on you and your baby.  Run with my doula sister, Erin McGuigan, this is a day to emotionally prepare for birth and motherhood through a gentle journey exploring your hopes and fears for what's to come.  You will create some beautiful birth items, share stories, enjoy a delicious lunch, practice some gentle yoga and be loved and nourished by two experienced doulas.

Booking is essential as places are limited - £75 per Mama

Sundays throughout the year 10-4pm

My birth clients get a free place on this workshop

 

Birth trauma support

I am trained in the Three Step Rewind technique to support birth trauma

This is a simple, gentle and effective process to help you to heal previous trauma

It usually takes place over three sessions (session one and two can be done together) - 

Session one:  A full debrief of the birth

Session Two:  The Rewind relaxation script

Session Three:  The follow up to see how things have changed for you 

A full in depth explanation can be given so if you are interested in this, please do get in touch.

This can also be done over facetime/skype if your location does not allow face to face time easily.

£75 for the full process online / £125 in person

This is free to birth clients if appropriate
