Packages and Pricing

Preparation is the key to success in most things, and becoming a mum is no different. You will no doubt have an idea of what you would like your pregnancy, birth and Postpartum period to look like. It is my role as a doula to help ensure your dreams come true. I offer a range of packages designed to suit the needs of every new mum, from simple Birth Preparation, right through to extended Postpartum Support, and everything in between.

The first step is to meet, get to know one another and exchange energies. The ideal time for this is around week 15-20 of your pregnancy. You can tell me what it is you are hoping for in the coming months, and I will fill you in on the services I offer that can help you. If the vibes are right and we are a match made in delivery heaven, we can move to the next level and together work out which of my services you need.
