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 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.




Postnatal Doula Support £10 per hour.


As your postnatal doula I provide you with nurturing support as you make the transition into motherhood; as little or as much support as needed, from a few hours in the beginning, to regular visits over a number of weeks (we negotiate this together depending on the nature of support you want).



In the early days and weeks with your new baby, support from your partner can be key, so I am a resource for you both during this time. I support you in establishing (breast) feeding, and signpost you to additional help if needed. I help with light housework, cooking a meal and provide ‘an extra pair of hands’ around the house while you and your new baby adjust to life together. If you just need to chat over a cup of tea, or for someone to watch over your baby while you take a longed-for shower, I am there for you. I will provide follow-up support (by phone/text/email) for an agreed period following the end of our contract.



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).
