Birth Services

I cover Gloucestershire and parts of Wiltshire, Bristol and Oxfordshire

Investing in a birth worker

I offer three different birth packages, with three different levels of investment, created around a basic framework including a wraparound support package for those who feel they need a deeper level of care.

Packages can be tailored to support your unique needs.

You want a calm connected birth

Meeting at least twice antenatally we’ll get to know each other and dive deeply into what your expectations are for your birth and how you can achieve this.

You know knowledge is power! So I'll help you research your choices, support your ideas and navigate the maternity system.

Continuity for your pregnancy and birth

You are free to call me at any point to voice concerns, ask questions or have a good moan about how knackered and enormous you feel (or tell me how wonderfully you're blooming)!

I’ll be there every step of the way providing compassionate, intelligent care and support to ensure you have a positive birth experience.

Unlike a midwife, you call me as soon as you feel you’ve gone into labour - or even if you’re just not sure!

If you want me there I’ll come immediately or if you just want to curl up in bed for a bit I’ll be there when need me.

When you're ready I will be with you supporting you every step of the way.

Imagine your journey into parenthood supported by someone who is there for you and your baby

Providing emotional and physical support, I will be with you, and your partner,  throughout your pregnancy and birth, and postnatal period

I will stay with you and your little one until you're settled and happy for me to leave your place of birth.

I will visit you postnatally to ensure you're settling into this next episode of your lives together. If you have any issues then we can use this time to tackle them or I can help you secure any additional help you may need.

Shared Care

If I have another birth that coincides with your estimate due date but you'd still like to work with me please consider shared care. For this I work closely with another doula and we both provide you with antenatal and postnatal support but whom ever is available will be the doula at your birth.

I work closely with two incredibly birthing workers to provide shared care - you can find out more about them here:
