Full Spectrum Doula

Initial Chemistry Meeting:

In this initial meeting, we like to keep it as an informal ‘getting to know each other’ meeting. We may discuss your birth preferences, cultural significant support, any previous pregnancy experiences, your expectations of your doula, and any other questions you might have. We understand how personal the decision of choosing your doula is, so the most important thing is to make sure we are a good fit for you and to see how the chemistry between us feels. We want to ensure you are supported and feel that you are in the best care.

Prenatal sessions:

During these sessions we explore your expectations for your birth and how you envisage our roles. Whether you want a home birth, a water birth or simply want to explore ideas of other places and spaces of birth; we are here to provide you with all the information you need to make the best choice for you.
We are open to tailoring these sessions to suit your needs. From physiology of birth, comfort measures, partner support, open and releasing, relaxation or just having a listening ear. We are here! Holding space for you is our responsibility. Prenatals can also be provided separately.

Birth attendance:

Once you are in labour, we will join you whenever it is right for you and stay with you until after your baby is born. From the moment we join you in labour, we will be there as a continuous emotional, physical and practical support in whatever capacity you need. After your baby is born, we will stay until you are all settled and happy for us to leave. This is the most delicate phrase of your journey and making sure your needs are protected and you feel safe will make a huge difference.

Postnatal Visits:

After your baby is born we offer a couple of postnatal support sessions during which we might discuss your birth experience and chat about how you and your baby are doing, provide practical and emotional support, whatever you need! Some women like to do this almost immediately, while others prefer to leave it longer. It is entirely up to you!

After you have all of your requested sessions, we will discuss the closing process of your support and continue to connect through our open Circles and village Meet ups if you wish too.

Beyond this, extra postnatal hours can be booked for additional support in the weeks and/or months after your little one is born.
