Description

A birth doula supports your journey to parenthood, however this journey may look for you.

We meet 3 times prenatally, to get to know each other, discuss your birth plan, and talk through any fears or concerns you may have. I'll be with you for your birth, offering physical and emotional support, and helping communcate with the midwives.

And my job isn't done after the baby is born! I'll come to visit 3 times in the postnatal period to help out. This could involve cooking meals, doing some light household chores (laundry and washing up) or helping you process your emotions.

Midwifery / Gynaecology Visit (Optional) - We will sit in on one meeting with your healthcare provider.

Ongoing virtual support - For any questions or worries that might come up in between appointments .

Birth support - We will be on call 24/7 from week 38 to 42. We’ll be ready to join you when you go into labour and will stay by your side until approximately 2 hours after your baby is born.

Postnatal Debrief - We will come by to visit after the birth, so we can talk through your experience and help you reflect. If you need further support we will signpost you to our network of postnatal support workers.

We are so grateful to have had Harriet by our side in our birth experience. She helped us to prepare for and process our birth, and all the emotions that go along with it. Thank you Harriet!

Harriet advocated our preferences without diminishing the role of anyone else involved in our birth and cheered me on from the sidelines when I lost faith in myself. Plus, she's pretty good at back rubs when the contractions take over!
