What is a Doula?


The origin of the word Doula came from the Greek, meaning “woman who serves”, and a twenty-first century definition can be found in the Oxford dictionary: “A woman who gives help, support and advice to another woman during pregnancy and during and after the birth”



As a birth Doula, I follow these age old principles, offering you unconditional support through your pregnancy and staying with you – no shift change – throughout your labour until you meet your baby. I am there to listen with no judgement and give confidence whilst offering flexible, practical and emotional support, holding space for you to make the choices you want for your birth. I believe women have innate knowledge on how to birth their babies, and that without fear we can access our ‘birthing wisdom’. As your Doula I will support your labour and birth wherever it happens and whatever it involves – home birth, hospital birth, water birth, or c-section. I truly believe a woman’s experience of childbirth is a life-changing moment; it can be intensely joyful, and empowering, as long as the woman feels she has made choices and been listened to. I will work with you and your birth partner during your pregnancy to figure out what a positive birth looks like for you, building mutual trust and shared excitement for the big day.



I recognise the importance of YOUR birth and as your Doula it is my privilege to facilitate and support the birthing space you are creating together. This is YOUR birth story.



As a Postnatal Doula I’m there to help you settle gently into parenthood, if it’s your first time or third, it makes no difference, I will be happy to help.

In this meeting we can discuss your Doula needs and requirements and how I can support you within this framework. The cost of this initial consultation will be deducted from your birth support package should you wish to hire my services.

   • 24 hour on-call availability from 37/8 weeks up to the birth. During this period I will be happy to support you any time during the day or night (if you anticipate giving birth before 38 weeks please talk to me about this).

   • Continuous support for you throughout labour, in either hospital, home or Maternity unitl, including transfer from one to the other if required.

   • Photographs of your labour and the birth of your baby (if requested) and a written account of this special time.

   • Two postnatal visits and ongoing text, email and/or telephone support for up to six weeks after your baby is born.

I work closely with other Doulas in North Devon to share current knowledge and fully support the women in our area. I cover the North and Mid Devon areas (within an hour’s drive of Braunton).
