We have recently begun training our first batch of volunteer Doula's. Our Doula's will be on hand to support mums, and their families, through the birth of their baby. This is a service we have offered for a while, but with only Rosie trained up and demand for this service growing it was time to bring in some wonderful volunteers!
Our Doula's will be on call for our mums, and fully equipped with kit bags with all they need to make the experience comfortable for both mum and themselves, thanks to a grant from Persimmon Homes, for which we are so grateful.
Our doula's will be fully trained in all thing's birth, and will be there to support mums emotionally, physically and educationally, striving to ensure mum has a positive birth experience. Our doula's will meet mum before labour, and begin to build a relationship to ensure everyone is comfortable on the big day. During the birth the doula will act as an advocate for the mother, supporting her wellbeing, aiming to ensure her wants and desires for her birth are fulfilled, and the experience is positive and memorable for all no matter what path the birth may take.
