Labour Support During a Pandemic As with all areas, doula support has had to be adapted to still provide the best service possible whilst still being safe and appropriate. Under guidance from the Doula Association of Ireland, I have undertaken additional training in infection control and PPE. This will not compromise my ability to provide support, and you can feel confident that you and your family will remain safe.
Prenatal Visits This is our opportunity to meet during your pregnancy and talk about what your vision of your birth will be. We might go over some comfort measures that you would like to try, a birth plan (or as I like to call it Your Birth Preparation!), you can let me know what your preferences are for feeding after the birth and this is the opportune time for you to let me know about any fears or personal history that might be interfering with your ability to approach the birth with excitement and confidence.
Providing Labour Support I will be ‘on-call’ for you exclusively from 37 weeks of pregnancy. This means you can call me day or night when you go into labour and I will join you at your home to provide labour support.
Virtual Support I do not currently provide in-hospital support for clients. Once you feel ready to move from home to hospital I will switch to virtual support. This involves phone or video calls, either continuously or when you want it, and can be a valuable way to ensure that you are still getting some of the benefits of doula support.
Postpartum Visits After the birth I will visit you once you are home. I will be able to help you with any feeding concerns, questions about the birth or anything else you would like to discuss.
RosyBirths Childbirth Classes I offer childbirth education to help parents prepare for the birth AND for those first few weeks when the newness of your life can be a little overwhelming! If you’d like to read more about these workshops please CLICK HERE
