Doula Service

 

2 x 1-hour antenatal sessions in which we can discuss anything you like; your birthing plan, ways to increase the likelihood of you having the birth you want, what's possible (Everything.....! is the short answer : ) ) , fears and doubts, resources, extra ways to prepare, going forward. With additional telephone and e-mail contact throughout pregnancy.

Birth attendance - I offer a 4-week on-call period from 37 (full) weeks to 41 (full) weeks with a promise to endeavour to be with you at the birth even if it happens outside of this 4-week window. I will attend wherever you decide to birth - at home, the maternity ward of a hospital or a birth centre.

1 postpartum visit. I will check in with you (and your partner) and baby sometime within the first month after birth to give advice, sign-post to additional services, discuss and unpack the birth should you want to.

Churching/40 days/Post-natal support

Most cultures and societies previously observed the practice of Churching or 40 days rest, recuperation and bonding for mother and baby postnatally. Some still do and I would love to help you and your newborn to get all the benefits of it. This isn't enforced hermitism but an opportunity for you to heal and strengthen after your birth experience. (Of course, if you feel strong and want to leave the house before the 40-day period is up that is fab too!) Some birthing women, having been coerced into interventions they didn't necessarily need or having felt overlooked or ignored during birth can be traumatised by this. A space to process these emotions and to heal both physically and psychologically benefits you and your baby in so many ways. My support could be looking after baby so you can have a shower/sleep, light cleaning, cooking, shopping and freezer-filling services, emotional support, companionship, non-clinical counselling which basically amounts to listening without judgement.
