Having a baby is one of the most exciting times in life. Feeling confident about giving birth and being well supported during your birth makes for a positive experience.
Preparing for birth is one of the best things you can do during pregnancy. Birth preparation is more than just learning how a baby is born, it is learning to trust your instincts, to trust the process of birth and to be able to approach birth feeling confident. Having a doula by your side as you do that gives you support that allows you to feel cared for and looked after. Doula, pronounced ‘doola’, is an old Greek word which means female servant or caregiver. That’s exactly what I do – I serve you by accompanying you on your journey to motherhood, ensuring your voice is heard and you and your birth partner are informed and feeling confident, every step of the way.
