Doula’s are not medically trained so I will not perform any clinical tasks nor will I give any medical advice or deliver your baby. I will always provide support and guidance helping you in the right direction if other professional help is needed during pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period. 
Also as your doula my role is not to take over the role of your birth partner, instead I will support them and be their practical aid, freeing them to be present at the birth of your baby, giving you their full love and comfort. 

Your Birth & Postnatal Doula

serving you and your baby

‘Think of it as building your “dream team”. Support, encouragement, strength, knowledge and love from all sides, all working to help you to achieve a positive birth experience.’
Siobhan - The Birth Doula

'to serve'


(spoken doo-la)

What is a doula?

As your doula I will provide emotional, physical and practical support to both you and your birthing partner during your pregnancy, labour and 4th trimester (postnatal period), empowering and giving you the confidence to make informed choices for what is right for you and your baby. Having been through two very different labours myself I feel so strongly about caring for you and your partner during this huge milestone in your lives. I will be there to build your confidence on your own journey to parenthood, whilst providing information as necessary and helping you to navigate the maternity system. 

Please note - this package does not include any photography but can be added should you wish for me to capture your birth for you
