About Starfish Doula

Caz is based in Bradford and has been doulaing since 2012, primarily support families in their pregnancies and births. She has recently extended her support to include postnatal support in the home for the first few weeks of parenthood.

"It was great to have someone I could talk with over a cup of tea, and ask all the questions I may have felt worried about asking elsewhere and to be able to be completely honest about my thoughts and fears without facing any judgement."

- Lydia

"Having a doula service made us feel like VIPs and individuals, rather than one of very many being looked after by very busy health services. We felt we could ask her anything - and if she didn't know, she'd help us find out."

- Helen

The benefits of a birth doula

A doula in the birth room is associated with a shorter labour, a more satisfying birth experience, less pain relief, less need for assistance or caesarean, and more successful nursing. Partners also participate with more confidence.
