As a Doula and Hypnobirthing Instructor, I can offer support to help you feel prepared, informed, calm, confident, reassured, cared for and listened to throughout your journey into parenthood and beyond.
I can tailor my services to meet your needs and I offer a free consultation via telephone, FaceTime, WhatsApp video call or Zoom to discuss these needs and see how I can support you. Use the contact link to get in touch and we can go from there.
I offer in person services if you live in or around Bradford, Leeds, Harrogate and Halifax areas. I am able to offer online services too.
I teach The Calm Birth School Method of Hypnobirthing which is designed to support you and your birth partner (who ever you may choose) to have a positive birth experience whichever way your pregnancy and birthing journey takes. A Hypnobirthing course is more than just learning about the relaxation and breathing techniques, it is also birth preparation and education to provide you with the knowledge and confidence to make informed choices throughout your pregnancy and birth experience.
I can support you during your pregnancy to develop the tools and knowledge to help you to have a positive birth experience, whatever that may be for you. I can support you to identify all the options, choices, information that is available in order to consider what you could do to prepare and create your own birth preferences.
I can also support by offering a Hypnobirthing Course where you will learn The Calm Birth School Method. This will enable you to feel relaxed, comfortable and in control of your birthing journey. You will receive the book, MP3’s and up to 10 hours worth of instruction as well as course materials and a goody bag.
Dependent on your situation I can offer as much or as little support as you feel that you need. I am here to support you, not make decisions or choices for you.
LABOUR AND BIRTH
As a Birth Doula I am able to offer support to you and any other Birth Partner during your labour, birth and those important few hours post birth.
Most likely we would have met two or three times during your pregnancy and whether or not you have booked me for postnatal support I will offer at least one home visit post birth to debrief and reflect as well as signpost any future support you may need.
It does not matter to me where you would like to give birth, if you would like me to support you during this time, then I am there for you.
I do will never take on too many birth clients to ensure that I can be there for you, when you need me. I will be “on call” from 38 weeks until your baby arrives.
Post Birth Support
As a Postnatal Doula I am able to support you physically, emotionally and mentally in those first few days and weeks of parenthood.
My postnatal offer is 6 hours to be used in 2 or 3 hourly blocks over a period of 4 weeks depending on availability and tailored to you and your family’s needs during the fourth trimester. 6 hours is the minimum and you can add additional hours to this.
My hourly rate is £28.
I usually support for up to the first 12 weeks post birth and can offer virtual and telephone contact also. The length and number of hours is determined on your needs and requirements.
I also offer a follow up and debrief two hour sessions post birth for Hypnobirthing clients if desired.
