Virtual Doula

With no restrictions on travel times and distance, it has meant that many more people can access the support of a Doula that might not have been able to before. You can even be in another county.

Do you feel that you would benefit from my Doula support but you are living abroad or too far away from me to be able to give in-person support? 

Perhaps you are looking for a Doula package to suit your situation which includes full virtual support, guidance, education and knowing there is the option of virtual support during your labour and birth should you need it?

If the situation changes during your labour and you and your partner would value some virtual support to discuss your options I am here.  I will be your constant source of support and a calm voice to guide you every step of the way

Remote Doula support:

  • Whattapp, phone, video call and e mail giving evidence based information, support with any appointments, anxieties and issues. A place where you can feel that you have consistent support throughout your pregnancy, birth and until 6 weeks after your baby is born.  This can be on a group basis with your partner or 1:1.  During working hours and by arrangement at a time outside this to suit you
  • 3 virtual antenatal sessions with you and your partner where we will get to know each other and build a relationship. We will go through the essential hormones and environment for birth,  techniques to support you through labour and birth and the tools of advocating for you. In addition to this I also like to have a 1:1 session with you and your partner which again helps to deepen our relationship and understanding.
  • Clear and well thought out birth preferences are essential to enable your partner to advocate for you and making sure your wishes are carried out, wherever possible. We will discuss your birth preferences in detail with you and your partner to make sure that as well as your dream birth you also have birth preferences for if your plans change. I will guide you with your written preferences to ensure they are clearly laid out and in a format that is easy to understand for everyone in your birth team.
  • I will be on call for you virtually 24 hours a day and 10 days before your due date and until your baby is born.
  • When you go into labour I am on the end of the phone if you need me for support. This could be to reassure you and provide you with information or to discuss your options should things change and support you with advocating
  • I will be there for you virtually in those early weeks to support you virtually with feeding and any other support that might be helpful.
  • When you feel ready we can discuss your birth (a birth de-brief)
  • If required I will guide you with further signposting to other relevant practitioners or organisations that might be helpful
