Birth Doula

I'm Yasmin. A doula passionate about women having good births. Simple.

What is a Birth Doula?
 

"A doula (/ˈduːlə/), also known as a birth companion, birth coach or post-birth supporter, is a non-medical person who stays with and assists a woman before, during, or after childbirth, to provide emotional support and physical help if needed. The word 'Doula' comes from the modern Greek word for 'servant-woman' which in Ancient Greek means 'female slave'."

In modern day however, a birth doula is someone whose goal is for the labouring woman to feel safe, informed and comfortable. Doulas exist to complement the role of midwives and doctors.

And what do I mean by "good births"?
 

A birth where you felt you were involved and consenting in every decision.​

A birth where you felt your space was protected.​

A birth where you were able to feel like a goddess instead of feeling like just a "vessel".​

A birth where you were able to disconnect from the rest of the world and its worries and focus on the miracle of bringing your baby into the world and bonding with it.​

A birth that brings back good memories years down the line.

What I do...
 

I have helped mums in hospital settings, home and birth centre settings, through every kind of pain relief and through none at all. I do this by...
 

  • By supporting you with any kind of birth you want to have

  • By being available for you - nothing like needing to talk to someone and them not picking up the phone.

  • By coming to you when you are in labour.

  • By helping you relax and get comfortable... whether that be through chatting (or silence), massages, hot water bottles, back pressure, help with showers, dimming the lights, hugs, snacks etc.

  • By encouraging and helping you work through every fear or worry every step of the way.

  • By ensuring your privacy and wishes are respected.

  • By advocating for you (this is where the legal skills come in handy)

  • By providing you with evidence based information to help you make your choices.

  • By being supportive to your partner and helping them understand what you are going through.
