Platinum Standard Education & Support

I combine my experience as a mother, a doula and an educator to bring you a comprehensive, evidence based Birth Preparation program that will help you to build trust and confidence in your body and a plan to support your birth, your way!

Exclusive care

I accept a limited number of Birth Care bookings per year to ensure that I can provide you with focused, bespoke support and the very best levels of care.

Relationship focused

My absolute top priority is building a strong and trusting relationship with you so that you have a safe space to ask for support/share how you are feeling whilst receiving kind, loving and individualised care.

The Dragonfly Birth Package

Each birth is unique and when you book The Dragonfly Birth package with me I will provide continuity of care throughout your pregnancy and into the early weeks of parenthood. I will be in your corner at every stage, supporting your values, beliefs and choices for 'Your Birth, Your Way'!

Our antenatal sessions together will ensure that we really get to know each other, so that we can build a strong and trusting relationship as a birthing team and so I can provide you with personalised 1-1 support as we prepare for birth, discussing your preferences and making a plan for your postnatal recovery.

During labour I will support you with all the information, emotional and practical support you need in order to remain calm and relaxed during this very special time.

After your baby is born I will visit for a postnatal support session and will continue to provide virtual support for the first 6 weeks postpartum, should you need it, so that you never feel alone on this journey into parenthood!

Bespoke Birth Doula Support includes:

  • 3 antenatal sessions
  • 1 postnatal debrief and support session
  • On-call from 38 weeks of pregnancy until your baby is born
  • phone/text/email support 9am-5pm up to 38 weeks and 24 hrs/day during the on call period
  • support at the birth of your baby

Postnatal Support 15 hour Block

This option provides you with the security of knowing that you have pre-arranged 1-1 support for the early weeks with your new baby.

What could be better in those early days of parenthood than having planned visits from someone you know and trust, whose sole focus is on caring for you, helping you to navigate the challenges of newborn care and ensuring that you are able to recover fully after the birth of your baby!

This is an opportunity to block book your postnatal support sessions in advance and take advantage of a preferential hourly rate.

There is no limit on how many 15 hour blocks you can book but the hours within a block:

  • Must be used as a minimum of 3 hours per visit.
  • Must be used within 6 months of payment.
  • Can be topped up by the addition of individual hours at the standard rate if more hours are required but an additional 15 hours is not needed.

 

Night doula support- 

I offer night doula support to clients I am working with during the day or for clients who want to book a series of night support sessions. This support aids a restful night sleep as I look after your baby's needs.

Sessions run 9pm-7am    £250

Birth Planning & Postnatal Planning Power Hours provide 1-1 support via Zoom or in the comfort of your own home to discuss your options for the birth of your baby/postnatal recovery, space and time to consider your preferences and guidance on how to write an effective plan.

Cost: £49.50 per Power Hour

It is said that 'if you don't know what your options are, then you don't have any!'

Well, the Birth Planning and Postanatal Planning Power Hours will most certainly leave you with a clear understanding of all your options, with time to have each one explained in more detail if you need it. Your 1 hour session will be tailored to your needs and will include guidance on wording, layout and resources to create your bespoke plan in your own time.

I can also provide follow up support via email/text, if you need it, while you finalise your plan.

1-1 Courses and workshops are booked at a time that is convenient for you and take place in the comfort of your own home.

Bespoke Packages of support are available- please contact me directly to discuss what you are looking for.
