Birth Doula Package

 

As your birth  doula I offer a free initial consultation in the comfort of your home , so you get to know me  a bit before hiring me as your birth support doula. 

 

Your birth package includes usually 3 visits (each about 2 hours long ; 2 prenatal and 1 postnatal), unlimited phone and email support and support for the duration of your pregnancy, labour and birth for as long as is required, and after birth when you are settled nicely and feel comfortable for me to leave.  I am there for your postnatal visit a few days after birth for you to debrief your birth, for anything else you would like to discuss and get hands on help with. I offer a tailor made birth package which supports your personal needs.

 

I am on-call for you 24 hours a day from week 38 of your pregnancy until your baby is born. I am available to join you during your labour as early as you feel the need. The on-call period can usually be adjusted in special circumstances eg. twins, early medical induction etc. I always do my best to support you in the way that works best for you and nurtures and cares for you to enable a positive birth experience. We go through your birth wishes in the 2 antenatal visits, in great detail and discuss any concerns you have etc.

 

I am passionate that a woman be allowed to birth in an environment which nurtures and protects her allowing her to focus on the special job at hand and simply put : blossoming births , with calm solid support.

 

I have attended a Doula UK  recognized birth doula training course, Nurturing Birth, and have experience to fully support you as a birth doula.

 

I  charge R4000 for my birth doula package service , yet am flexible and understanding  if you can't pay the full package cost up front, let's see if we can make a plan.

 Postnatal Doula Package 

 

As your postnatal doula , I visit you in your home or in hospital from as early as your baby’s birth-day and be with you for as long as you wish.

 

My  role is nurturing you and your family in the way that makes you most comfortable. My role  is supporting you positively by helping you to acknowledge your successes and build your confidence as a parent. I will offer listening support and can support you by encouraging you to develop your own parenting style, tailor made to your choices.

 

The support I offer may vary from day-to-day as your family’s needs change in those first few months. I help in strengthening your warm environment in a calm way , supporting you to thrive with your new baby. You may wish for me to help you develope strategies and skills etc. . I spend time with you answering questions you may have and encouraging you to be the mother you want to be . We can also debrief your birth  and your feelings about how your birth unfolded.

 

I do my best to make sure you feel nurtured and cared for, this may mean allowing you time to sleep, have a shower or bath while I look after your baby . I help with  bathing, handling baby , nappy change of baby etc. I  support you with your feeding choices. I am available in the nights too if you would like.

 

I have attended a Doula UK recognized training postnatal doula course and have experience to fully support your family  postnatally. I charge an hourly rate for my services , depending on day care or night care, but am flexible and understanding if you can't pay the full package cost up front, let's discuss.

Birth Debrief Session 

I offer a 2 hour birth debrief so that you can chat over and explore your feelings about your birth and how it went .

 

My clients have told me that they found  this  session very useful so that they could explore their feelings about how their birth went and especially if they came out feeling a bit not complete by the whole experience , they go on after this session to really be able to move forward to just really enjoy their baby knowing that they have dealt with it emotionally and practically . 

 

I come to your home for this private session as long as you live in my driving area .
