Prenatal Doula support
You're pregnant! Many congratulations!
As you go through your pregnancy and all the emotions that come with it, you may find yourself in a world of questions, decisions to make, preparations, expectations and hopes.
It can all be a little overwhelming, so I’m here to support you in preparing for meeting your new little one, and to remind you to enjoy and celebrate this moment in your life, whilst also ensuring you feel confident and empowered. So, let’s put the kettle on and chat through your hopes and dreams for your birth and baby, and allay any concerns that may be niggling at you.
I’m here to answer any questions, point you in the direction of useful information and research, help you prepare logistically for your birth and arrival of your baby, and to support you in putting together your birth intentions and preferences, so that you may feel calm, supported and confident about the beautiful journey you’re on.
I’m also here to mark and honour your pregnancy, celebrate your beautiful bump, and to support you in connecting to your changing body and to those around you. And to make you aware of the circle of support and care that’s around you and help you in accessing it.
If I'm going to be your birth doula, during the prenatal period, in my visits we (as in you, me and your partner if you're having one at your birth) will get to know each other a little bit better so we can all feel comfortable in each other's company when the big day or night comes. We'll discuss anything you'd like about your pregnancy and birth, and we'll chat about your preferences and intentions so that we are all on the same page.
During the prenatal visits - and if it's something that interests you - we can also explore different exercises for managing the intensity of birth (like visualisations, affirmations, touch and massage, etc.), and have fun preparing things like a bespoke birth massage oil for you.
It can be a lovely time and opportunity for getting prepared and excited about your upcoming birth.
- 1.5h prenatal session to answer your questions about pregnancy and birth
