Life as a Doula

WHY WOULD YOU HIRE A DOULA


Why would you hire a doula?

A doula will support your husband/partner in supporting you.

A doula is only there for you as midwives in hospitals have to care for all the birthing women.

A doula will help you and teach you how to breathe.

A doula keeps you steady and calm.

A doula with remain with you throughout the labour. (no shift changes)

A doula is just a call away.

A doula helps once you come home with the baby and feel insecure.

You can choose a doula that you get on with and feel at ease with.

Having a doula with you can reduce your caesarean rate by 50%.

What I Do

I am living my dream while working with mums and babies. I see mums when they are 34 weeks pregnant and then go to their homes once they go into labour. I stay for the full duration of the labour and after the birth I assist them with breast feeding. I do another visit after the birth to see that all is well and to help where I can.  Mums are always welcome to call me in the event that they have any questions, whether before or after the birth. I am passionate about my work as a doula and I care and love all the families with which I work. Once you have been present at a birth you feel part of the family and it’s wonderful to hear news of the new baby’s life as he or she grows.
