As your Doula, I will offer you non-judgemental, emotional and physical support before, during and after birth.
I will provide relevant information as well as practical assistance. My main goal is to give you gentle, hands-on support and encouragement.
I will listen to your needs and desires and together we will come up with your best birth plan.
Both you and your chosen support network will be respected at all times.
Supported Birth Experience Includes:
Three pre-natal visits where we can go through all your relevant birthing and pre-natal history.
I will give you information to help you feel confident to make an educated decision in whichever birthing circumstance you choose or may find yourself to be in. We will discuss all your options and explore different methods to assist you in your labour and delivery.
I will be on call for you 24/7 for two weeks before your due date until your baby is born.
I will stay with you during your entire labour without leaving, until you and your partner are feeling comfortable and settled after the first feed of your baby.
I will also do two follow up post-natal visits to support you in feeding, settling and your day to day activities
From there we can discuss if you would like the support to continue with a Post-natal Doula package (Also available without having to purchase a pre-natal/birth Doula package)
Support is offered within the Bellarine Peninsula, Geelong region and Surfcoast Shire. Extra charges may incur if you are outside of this area or more than 30km from Barwon Heads.
