All our hypnobirthing teachers also offer doula services. Find out how a doula can support you with your pregnancy, labour, birth and beyond
Research shows that hiring a doula is one of the most effective ways to maximise the chance of a positive birth experience. Doulas provide continuous emotional, practical and informational support that is tailored to your specific needs throughout your pregnancy, birth and into the postpartum period. Your doula will get to know you throughout your pregnancy, she will become truly invested in your birth experience and what is right for you. You will form a bond that is both individual and rare. She will be there whenever you need her. She will go on call for you at 38 weeks (or sooner if you require!) and attend you in labour as soon as you need her support. She will stay with you until your baby is born right up until you are safely tucked up afterwards and you’ve had your first feed. She will see you at least once postnatally and will be available for support via phone and e-mail until your baby is 6 weeks old.
All our doulas are members of Doula UK and have specialist hypnobirthing training, so can support you with these techniques during your birth. If you’d like to hear more about our individual doula service, why not check out our profiles here?
