What is a doula?

It is difficult to fully encapsulate what a doula is and to describe what we do, because how we work with each woman is determined by her needs. In short we want women to give birth in power, and to enter motherhood feeling confident, and well in every way. We are completely guided your unique preferences and wishes. so we are flexible in our role.Jeannine Parvati Baker Quote

Greater Manchester Doulas CIC is made up of good friends who are passionate about pregnancy and birth, individual choice, and womens’ autonomy who work well together. We seek to challenge the myths perpetuated by society  that birth is always painful, inherently dangerous, and simply a means to an end.

Our experience as doulas shows us that pregnancy and birth are safe, normal, and enjoyable life events.

"My body is capable and strong" birth affirmationWe believe that women are strong, capable, and the experts on their bodies and babies. No matter what you want for your birth, we want you to feel respected, in control, and powerful.

Pregnant women tend to have more options than they are typically presented with. We can support you to explore your freedom of choice, without judgement or agenda, so you can plan the birth you feel is right for you.

Research overwhelmingly promotes continuity of carer to improve outcomes for women and their babies. Please get in touch to discuss how we could support you.
