As a doula I love listening to you/your partner

talk about what you want for birthing your baby.

You are in control and I will follow your lead. I promise to support

you.During your pregnancy I will enjoy getting to get to know you,

providing you with information about labour and discuss your

preferences and options.  My aim is to create a comfortable

environment with an individual and tailored individual package

especially for you.   When your labour starts I’ll accompany you

when you want me to. I will be there to help any birthing partner too,

so we can work as a team to give you the space, confidence and

encouragement you need throughout your labour. Once your baby

is born I can support you to feed your baby and offer guidance on

different techniques that are required for the way you decide.

I promise to be honest and open and have integrity throughout our relationship offering continuity throughout. I genuinely care for you and will always have you and your baby’s interest at the forefront of the support I offer you. All the information and thoughts you share with me will be private and I will not discuss them with anyone else without your knowledge. I will continue to encourage you to birth your chosen way, giving you the empowerment to make informed choices and follow your own instincts. I will nurture you and your birthing partner, to give you control in a safe atmosphere at all times in whatever environment you choose to birth in.
