As a Doula I offer my services to other women and their partners in the Angus and Tayside area, including the Strathmore valley.
I will travel a radius that includes Dundee, Montrose, Brechin, Arbroath, Blairgowrie, Perth and further afield, such as Aberdeen. Stirling or north Fife, would be considered.
A Doula can be invaluable in supporting both parents to achieve a positive, calm and joyous birth, be that at home or in hospital,
drug free or Caesarean.
Klaus, Kennell and Klaus (1993) itemised the positive effects of doula care as:
* 50% reduction on cesarean rates,
* 25% shorter labor,
* 60% reduction in epidural requests,
* 40% reduction in syntocinon use,
* 30% reduction in analgesia use,
* 40% reduction in forceps delivery
Hypnobirthing is not only about producing babies, it's about creating strong, confident mothers, who learn instinctively to trust themselves and, by using their inner wisdom, make choices that are right for themselves and their families.
