Have a birth ball in labour


Why would you use a ball in labour?

It gives you pelvic mobility.

When you are sitting on the ball keep your feet on the ground and move the ball around with your body.

The ball is soft and nice to sit on.

Helps with back pain.

Opens up your pelvis

It can encourage foetal descent as the mum sits upright and this creates gravity.

Changes the baby's position.

Ball can strengthen tummy muscles and perineal support.

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.
