Birth takes a village
Women birth best when they feel safe and supported. Birth is a pivotal time, comprised of many different emotions. It can be amazing, daunting and totally overwhelming! As a birth keeper I stand to harmonise the changes, respect, listen without judgement, bear witness to and support women as their extraordinary transformation into a mother takes place.
Supporting women through pregnancy, childbirth and post-natally is a time-old tradition. In modern society it seems even more necessary as fewer families are close together to carry out simple tasks that lighten the load for the new family. For many reasons, this support might not be in place while big life change occurs.
Not only a baby is born, but a mother and a father is, too.
The very nature of birth itself is unpredictable. If you want to have someone you have had time to get to know, who understands the physiological processes of the childbearing year, advocate for you, your partner and your choices to enhance your experience, let's arrange to talk further. Sometimes just having someone there and ready for you, woven into your plan-of-care can make a whole world of difference.
There is no price list for these services available on this website. The reason being that funding should not determine who can access a doula or not. Please inquire for pricing, but not let that stop you receiving the support you so wish for you and your birth. Payment plans can also be arranged at request, as well as vouchers from friends and family members to subsidise doula costs.
