Birth Stories:

Hope Briscoe

Hope was born in Sept 2010 at the Westville Clinic in Durban.

Verlie is family and rang me during her labour to ask some questions and with Westville not being a doula friendly hospital I gave her advice on her cell phone.  We chatted from 3pm to just after 9pm when Alexandra was born..

Well that was a first for me having to be a doula on a cellphone..  It went well and I loved being able to guide Verlie through her labour.

Labour is as easy as making it work for yourself.

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.
