We believe in what we do, we strive to be good listeners, we’re convinced of the benefits and impacts of doula support, and our roles are flexible depending on the needs of each client, so we arrive at every meeting, and every birth, with open minds and hearts.
Part of what sets us apart from other doulas is how much we value the quality of the relationships we have with the birthing women that we work with. We offer unlimited meetings during the antenatal period because we see you as a whole person, not just a woman having a baby. Outside of face-to-face meetings, you can contact any one of us about anything that is on your mind – we don’t judge and want to hold space for whatever is going on for you with unconditional positive regard. We are always ready to listen and don’t ever have an agenda, we trust that you have the tools to make the right decisions for you and your baby and want to support you to trust your innate wisdom and intuition.
Our communication with women is often focussed on their previous experiences, expectations for this birth, and how they envisage our role as doulas, but this is by no means an exhaustive list. We are open to talking about anything that is on your mind because we know that all of your hopes and fears, not just the ones related to your pregnancy and birth, can have an impact on your birth experience.
Sometimes we are asked how our unrestricted way of working is sustainable for us, but we know that we can offer women this level of time and commitment because we are a team. As a collective, we trust and support each other completely and this allows us to bring this way of being to our roles as doulas too.
