Birth Doula

I am a birth doula covering Stoke on Trent and Cheshire. I am passionate about promoting positive birth and parenting experiences and supporting pregnant people to prepare and smash the birth of their dreams, whatever that looks like for them ✨
Evidence has shown that some of the benefits of hiring a doula for your birth include:

25% shorter labour

30% decrease in the use of pain relief

60% less likely to require an epidural

50% less likely to have a caesarean

57% increase in breastfeeding success

Initial consultation

I offer a free 60 minute consultation to establish the support you need and if we’re a good fit for each other.

Antenatal period

Depending on how far into pregnancy you are when you make contact, we will usually meet three times. This is an opportunity to get to know each other, discuss your birth wishes, explore evidence based information in order for you to make informed decisions to have an empowered birth experience. No matter your birth choices, I’m here to support you to plan and achieve it.

On call

From week 38, until your baby is born, I am on call 24/7 for you, available at any time to discus concerns or just to talk over how you are feeling. If labour should start before week 38, all provisions will be taken to try to be available to you.

Labour & birth support

During labour I will attend your chosen birth place and we will put into practice what we had previously discussed in the antenatal period. Working together with the midwives and your birth partner, if you have one,  to achieve a positive and satisfying birth experience. A doula’s main talent is to know when not to disturb a good thing, allowing your body to intuitively take over to birth your baby. Once your baby is born, I will settle you in, establish feeding, however you choose to feed your baby, and leave you feeling confident and wrapped in love.

Postnatal follow up

A few days after your baby is born, I will make my postnatal visit. We can chat about your birth experience, help with any feeding concerns and support you with anything else you may need. I also offer further postnatal visits at an additional cost under the role of a postnatal doula.

The cost of my birth Doula package is from £600 and payment plans can be arranged as needed.
