“Find your Mr/s Doula right.
Every doula like every person looking for a doula has a unique personality and skill set. I could tell you I’m the best, but if we don’t get on, you won’t benefit from the support I can offer. The only way to find out if I’m the doula for you and your specific, unique journey to parenthood is to talk to me. There is an amount of getting to know each other to do, before you can ultimately decide whether I’m your Doula right or someone else equally gorgeous is.
My intention as your doula is to help you get the information you need to enable you to develop your own clear and informed idea of your birth preferences and how they might apply to different birth scenarios, as well as supporting you emotionally and physically throughout your labour and birth.
I want you to feel fully informed, strong, positive, fearless, confident, and loved as you begin one of the most challenging phases of your life. We’ll also consider your post-natal recovery plan, and if you hire me as your post-natal doula, as well as or instead of as your birth doula, I will be there to support your sumptuous, healing fourth trimester.
Don’t leave it a moment longer, give me a call”

Our antenatal courses aren’t like those you might see online, or get at your maternity unit or hospital. With NCT you get the time and attention to explore what’s important to you.
Our courses bring local parents-to-be together whose babies are due around the same time.
