Pregnancy, birth and postnatal doula support
Having a doula reduces:
Overall caesarean rate by nearly 50%
Length of birth by 25%
Need for induction by 50%
Pain medication by over 30%
The need for forceps or vacuum extraction by 34%
Requests for epidurals by up to 60%.
Doula-attended mums also report less pain during birth, fewer signs of depression, and a higher level of self-esteem.
Unfortunately the system doesn’t allow for a named midwife and it is highly likely you won’t have met her before she walks into your birth.
I am passionate about giving a constant nurturing and caring relationship to a couple to enable the journey from conception to birth and beyond is a calm and very happy one.
Post-natally I offer breast/bottle feeding support, night nursing, looking after baby while you get sleep in the day or need to go to an appointment or just need space to breathe!
