Availability

The calendar below should give you a good idea about when I am available. I keep this updated as best as I can. However, the information here is not exhaustive. If you are not clear about whether or not I might be available to support you, please get in touch via my contact page.

Births

I try my best to only be on-call for one birth client at once. I can sometimes take on additional clients that overlap with clients that are already booked in. If you are in desperate need of support, and you cannot find/do not want someone else to support you, please get in touch anyway as it may be possible to arrange shared care with another doula, or to have a back-up doula cover any overlapping days.

Postnatal

I only offer postnatal support to birth clients. This support usually follows directly on from your birth, or it may start later, for example: if you have temporary family support.

If I am working postnatally for you I may also be on-call for someone else's birth. I can also support more than one client postnatally at the same time. For that reason, I do not currently maintain a postnatal availability calendar.

A diary is open with a month viewable across a two page spread. One date is circled with the words "Go on call!" and a smiley face.

Birth Availability Calendar

My birth availability is very much dependent upon the mode of birth in question, and whether or not it requires me to go on-call:

  • If you are planning to wait for labour to begin spontaneously, you will need 2 clear weeks before your EDD and 2 clear weeks after it
  • If you are planning an elective caesarean, you will only need the date of your surgery to be clear
  • If you are planning an elective induction, you will need 1-4 clear days around your scheduled induction date
