There is no charge for a no-obligation introductory meeting. During this visit we would discuss your requirements and any initial questions you may have. Your package would be tailored to your wishes and needs.
A typical package would include:
· 2 antenatal visits of about 2 hours each. These are usually at around week 34 & week 37
Telephone and e-mail support
An ‘on call’ period from 2 weeks before your estimated due date until your baby is born
· My continuous attendance and support during labour and birth, from the time you decide you want me with you, until after your baby is born and you are both settled ·
A Postnatal visit of approximately 2 hours
This is just a typical package and is not exhaustive.
You may wish to have more visits, have me accompany you to antenatal appointments with the midwife or at the hospital, have help preparing for baby or be your partner at HypnoBirthing or other antenatal classes.
It is entirely your choice!
Possible topics for discussion during antenatal visits include:
Relaxation techniques and the importance of relaxation throughout labour
Positions for labour and birthing
Preparing for a homebirth / VBAC / hospital or birth centre birth
Preparing informed birth preferences,
Newborn care and feeding.
I work respectfully, honestly and without prejudice with any expectant mother or partnership, regardless of race, nationality, religious belief, sexuality, age or disability. I believe that every woman should have access to a doula should she want one, and am happy to speak with you to arrange a payment scale or package that enables this.
