As a Doula I offer continuity of care and support to couples during pregnancy, the birth of their baby and the early post natal period.
Having someone with you along the way who you know and trust to follow your wishes is a very important element of doula care.
The specifics of the support are very much tailored to the couples individual needs and requirements. In broad terms:
~ I meet with you on a number of occasions,
~ attend some midwife/hospital appointments,
~ assist in drafting a birth plan and offer information and guidance on relevant issues to enable you to make your own informed decisions.
~ I will attend throughout active birth to advocate on your behalf and to assist with breathing, massage, and provide physical and emotional support.
I endeavour to keep the birth experience as close to the woman’s/couples wishes as possible and act as an advocate with the health professionals.
After the birth I attend on a number of occasions to check on the welfare of the baby and the couple, post natal recovery, as well as debriefing and celebrating the labour experience and the transition to parenthood.
The cost is 1200 euro, half of which is payable upon booking, the balance on the due date. This includes the use of a TENS machine and a set of pads.
In addition the cost of a taxi, to and from the birth, if necessary and any other urgent / night time travel / parking expenses, which will be invoiced separately after the birth.
If you would like to discuss further I am very happy to make an appointment to meet with you at your home and we can explore your wishes and how best they can be met.
