Birth Doula

Birth Doula

A birth doula provides continuous support for women and couples, through pregnancy, labour and birth and the immediate postnatal time, supporting women and their families planning all kinds of birth. Whether you are having an elective caesarean, a hospital birth or a home water birth, your doula will be there to support you throughout your birth journey.

Antenatal care

A doula will usually meet with the mother-to-be and her family at least twice during her pregnancy and also be available for phone and email support to answer any questions or concerns you havealong the way. During visits you have the opportunity to talk over any concerns, work out your birth preferences and get to know your doula before your baby arrives.

A birth doula will then go ‘on call’ towards the end of your pregnancy and will then be available 24/7 waiting for that important call.

During Labour

Throughout your labour, a doula provides emotional, practical and informational support, adapting to what is needed. The doula can offer help and suggestions on comfort measures such as breathing, relaxation, movement and positioning, and can also encourage your partner to participate in the birth (if applicable). The doula’s most important role is to provide nurturing, continuous support and reassurance.

Your doula will then stay with you until after baby is born and you are settled and happy and will also do at least one postnatal visit, to support you as you settle into life with a new baby, help with feeding as needed and give you an opportunity to talk over the birth.
