birth doula supporting birther and birth partner

Birth Doula

What the hell is a birth doula, and why do I need one?

A birth doula provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to their client before, during and shortly after childbirth. This helps with continuity of care and works with your birth team to create a safe and respectful birthing experience.

I work around Market Harborough, South Leicestershire and Kettering/Corby, North Northamptonshire. I am happy to travel up to an hour from Rothwell, North Northants.

So what do I get when getting doula support?

Each family, pregnancy, birth and postnatal experience is different. This means that each client I support will receive personalised support depending on their needs. But each family receives:

  • Continuity of care: Unlike the health care professionals who work on rotas, you book me for a set amount of time to attend your birth, and once I am there, I am there for the whole time.

  • While I am part of the birthing team, I am non-medical. This means I am not advising you on what I think you should do with your care. I will support you in making decisions and help you see different perspectives, ensuring that each decision you and your birth partner make is fully yours and informed.

  • Meeting beforehand means that you get to know me and trust the person in your birth space.
