Birth preparation support
Birth preparation support is an opportunity for people who don’t want a full Doula package, but who would appreciate a one-to-one chance to discuss all their birthing options with an independant, impartial person.
This is available as a one off meeting, and is usually around 2 hours long. Amongst other things, we will look at;
- The basic physiology of birth and stages of labour
- Where you would like to give birth
- Who you would like with you
- How you feel about any possible interventions
- What your options are
- Use of artificial hormones
- Feeding preferences
If there are any particular areas of birth that you would like more details on, perhaps you’re interested in a water birth, or you would like a VBAC (vaginal birth after a caesarean) then I can also help signpost you to the relevant information.
The fee for this service is £40
There is no obligation to book me as your Doula afterwards – although should you wish to, any fee paid would be deducted from your birth package.
