During a booking/interview visit you will meet both Sallyann and Sarah. By working with each other, we bring a wide range of expertise, knowledge and experience with us, which will be invaluable in supporting you to make choices that are most appropriate for your circumstances. We offer a full range of packages to suit every clients needs, and can discuss these with you at this appointment.
Following booking, depending on your chosen package, we will meet with you again to get to know you and your partner, learning about your individual beliefs and wishes for labour.
We can discuss your birth preferences, choice of birth environment, relaxation methods, pain relief options, birth positions, preparations for your baby, breastfeeding and anything else you (or your partner) want to talk about. If you have had a previous traumatic birth experience, we can help to alleviate any fears you may have, enabling you to have a positive approach to this birth.
Birthability Doulas offer ongoing text, email and phone support 24/7, and are on call for you from the moment you book us. You will call us at the onset of labour so that we can be there with you as soon as you need our support. You will be provided with an on call schedule which will identify which of us is first on call that day, thereby providing reassurance that you will never be expected to work with an unknown “back up” doula.
The on-call doula will be supporting both you and your partner practically and emotionally throughout the birth of your baby, and will not leave until both you and your baby are settled.
Finally, we will visit you in your home following the birth of your baby offering a chance to reflect on your birth experience. We can answer any questions you may have about life with a newborn, and help you decide if you require any further postnatal support.
