Antenatal

It all starts off with a good old chat. We'll utilise our antenatal visits to cover information on birth preferences, comfort measures, pain management, education, and most importantly, your ideal vision of what you'd like your birth to look like. 

 

This is a time for us to get to know each other, to build rapport and for us to work out what support will be most beneficial for your family. 

As a part of our antenatal visits, I offer the opportunity to explore the process of birth mapping. Birth plans? Pfft, no thank you.

 

A "plan" suggests there's one right way to do things, and it's a failure if it doesn't happen. A "map" shows us what birth can look like if it takes us down road a, b, c or d, etc, and the process of "birth mapping" enables you to make informed decisions along the way.  

Throughout our work together,  I’m available to answer any questions you or your partner might have and to help you understand things as they happen.

 

My goal is for you and your partner to feel empowered throughout this experience and never have to feel like you have no clue what’s going on!

Labour & birth

From the time that I go on call, my phone will be on, my doula bag will be by the front door and I’ll be ready to go! Say the word and I am there.

In terms of the labour and birth, I’m there with you from when you need me at the beginning until you feel ready to let me go (My maximum time limit is when bub reaches 2 years old, k?). I can be present for elective & non elective caesarean births too! 

Photos and videos are a great way to look back on things, I'm not going to lie, I'm not coming in with a schmancy camera and then using a fandangle editing system.

I use my phone (which admittedly DOES have a great camera!) and then email you everything that I've taken.

Postpartum

Once your settled in and ready for a visitor, I'll love on you and bub. We can debrief your birth experience, chat through how your body (and mind!) is recovering and how new born life is treating you.

 

I can help you with any issues that may have come up and tell you how freaking gorgeous your new little human is and how epically amazing YOU are.

Investment: $2,200

"It’s hard to articulate the impact Beth had on my pregnancy and birth experience. When hunting for a doula I was looking for someone not only highly competent with a good working knowledge of evidence-based information, but someone down-to-earth and easy to get along with.
 
Beth was all that and so, so much more. Her compassion, attention to detail and advice during my pregnancy was always balanced and insightful, and her support during my long labour made me feel safe and played a huge role in the empowering experience I ended up having. My husband and I will be forever grateful that we met her."
