During a booking/interview visit you will meet Sallyann either online or face to face. By working together, she will be able to ascertain all of your preferences for labour and birth and discuss them with you in great detail. She offers a wide range of expertise, knowledge and experience, which will be invaluable in supporting you to make choices that are most appropriate for your circumstances. She also offers a full range of packages to suit every client’s needs and can discuss these with you at this appointment.
Following booking, depending on your chosen package, she will meet with you again to get to know you and your partner, learning about your individual beliefs and wishes for labour.
She 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, she 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. You will know and feel confident about how and when to call during labour, so that your doula can be there with you as soon as you need their support. If working with a shared care doula, you will be provided with an on-call schedule which will identify the days each doula is on-call, 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, they will visit you in your home following the birth of your baby offering a chance to reflect on your birth experience. They can answer any questions you may have about life with a newborn, and help you decide if you require any further postnatal support.
