Birth Support Package

“If a Women doesn’t feel like a Goddess in labour, then someone isn’t treating her right.”

– Ina May Gaskin

As a Doula I walk with you on your pregnancy and birthing journey.  You are the leader of the journey and I am your companion, guiding you, supporting you, offering information, a listening ear during those moments of doubt, anxiety, fear. Our journey together is one of mutual trust and respect for each other and the birthing process.

I believe that all women should have access to nurturing and supportive care during pregnancy, where we honour the rite of passage into motherhood that you are embarking on. This care can be difficult to find in the medical system and so a doula of similar values and beliefs to yours can be a great companion on your journey.

If financial issues are proving to be a barrier to you please do get in touch and we can explore options.
