Service Description

Birth Experience Listening Support - a total of 4 hours. In-person or on zoom. This service allows you space and time for your to tell your birth story in as much or as little detail as you may wish, or perhaps simply voice areas of your experience that you are seeking to understand better. I am not a trained birth trauma specialist. I am good active listener and my experience as a doula also means I am often able to support you in processing your emotions & experiences, specifically in relation to birth. You can also use the session to explore potential steps towards resolutions for yourself. I will also provide details of further support available going forward, should you wish to access it. The sessions are responsive to your needs. Often it involves us meeting for around an hour and a half, chatting about your experience, then a follow up email from me outlining what we chatted about with any points/signposting, or sometimes it may be me reading through your birth story as you rewrite it or re-tell by audio recording - subsequent to your initial meeting. Finally, there's an optional second meeting of an hour to an hour and half when I can listen to and respond to any rewritten, or re-told story you have now shared, and we chat about any remaining queries you may have. £125 (plus travel expenses these are charged at 55p/mile as a round trip from my home PO4 to your location ) Here are some of the examples of practical support this package has included for some clients: - I have supported clients in attending birth reflection meetings with NHS staff (to fill in blanks of what may have happened clinically). - Assistance in how to get a copy of your medical records -Making space and self-accountability for you to take action on e.g. getting your notes or making a self-referral for counselling -Babysitting in your home whilst you talk to counselling services -Supporting the re-writing of your birth story Request to book your initial session - up to 2 hours. We will then arrange the subsequent session and any ongoing support up to four hours in total (the hours include remote support e.g. messages and emails). If you are from a marginalised group or you are facing financial hardship and would like to discuss reduced rates, or need a payment plan please contact me by email, message or give me a phone call.


Cancellation Policy

Hello! This is my booking page and I am very pleased you're visiting. Please be aware that as a birth and postnatal doula I sometimes have to make unplanned arrangements for birth and postnatal clients, that will not be shown here. This may mean I need to reschedule your appointment at the last minute. I thank you for your patience and understanding if this is the case with your appointment. If you need to reschedule please contact me with at least 24 hrs notice where possible.
