"IT'S YOUR ROAD, AND YOURS ALONE.
OTHERS MAY WALK IT WITH YOU,
BUT NO-ONE CAN WALK IT FOR YOU."
WHAT TO EXPECT
I believe it is important to undertake some type of regular mentorship as a Doula and this is something I do in my own practice. The Doula community is diverse and full of experienced Birthworkers - it will be sure to enrich your practice and self-development!
In the first instance, let's have a chat!
It's important that we both feel comfortable with each other if we are going to work with each other.
If you choose to work with me, I would like us to have an open and honest relationship. I will encourage you to explore your goals and open your mind and heart to birthwork! I'm not afraid to ask those difficult questions or to challenge your belief systems or biases.
Not only do I have experience working with expectant and birthing families but I can offer you support with growing and developing your business including branding & logo design, business planning and social media & marketing strategies.
I am happy to support other birthworkers, such as midwives, antenatal teachers and hypnobirthing practitioners, who are looking for support with their birthy business. Working in the birth world can present you with very different challenges than in any other self-employed role requiring a different approach to marketing and social media strategies.
YOUR INVESTMENT: You can choose to work with me on an adhoc basis if you wish - a 90 minute session costs £40. I also offer ongoing regular support from £15 per month which includes access to an exclusive Facebook group and monthly group sessions.
I am also part of the team at Developing Doulas and provide business support as part of the advanced birthworker course, Doulavation. When you sign up to the course you get lifetime access to the online content which is continually updated. You also get lifetime access to the Doulavation Facebook community which includes regular and exclusive Live events and CPD courses to develop your knowledge and skills as a birthworker.
