My availability is very much dependent upon the mode of birth in question, and whether or not it requires me to go on-call.
I try my best to only be on-call for one 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 overlapping days.
Birth Availability Calendar
Please check the calendar below for a rough guide to when I am available. I try to keep this up to date as best as I can.
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
Availability for other services
Bellycasting - I can usually fit in 2 or 3 bellycasts a month
Antenatal only/distance support - this does not involve going on-call so is almost always available, barring illnesses or holidays
