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 love your birth workshop (see under workshops for more details)
You 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 £1500
Please email me on email@example.com if you have any questions
I also offer a bare essentials birth only package for those seeking just in birth support for £1200 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.

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 3/3.5 hours)

Our Love Your Birth 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.

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.
