Doula Support

I offer a range of support options, to fit all circumstances.

I am independent and self-employed. I work for you, not your caregiver or hospital. I do not undertake any clinical or medical practices such as examinations. I do not give advice and I cannot make decisions for you. I can only make suggestions for planning and preparing for the birth of your baby. I can provide evidence-based information or help you to find out about local policies, but will be at all times guided by your choices.

Doula Support Options

My doula support can be broken down into four types, although in reality the lines between them are very blurred. I offer antenatal, birth, postnatal and full-spectrum doula support.

A pile of birth books on a coffee table

Single appointments or ongoing support during your pregnancy, with no birth cover.

Caz supporting a labouring woman in a birth pool

Support during pregnancy, labour and birth. Several different packages available to suit all families and their specific needs.

Caz wearing a newborn baby in a sling

Postnatal support provided in your home from birth until your baby is several months old. Ad-hoc or block bookings available.

Two women embracing

For those facing difficult reproductive circumstances, doula support is available whatever you need.

Fee Structure

Due to the flexible nature of the support provided by Starfish Doula, the fees vary along a broad spectrum. There are a range of packages available which suit most budgets. In the event that you are in dire financial circumstances but in need of support, it is possible to arrange subsidised support.

I offer several options for paying the fees, including a monthly payment plan. I am happy to arrange skill swaps or swaps for other items, and I also accept payments from friends and family members towards the total cost. The gift of doula support is a great baby gift!

I charge mileage and other expenses where appropriate. I try to keep these to a minimum and they will always be outlined in advance. Expenses are invoiced at the postnatal meeting, or with the cost of the session for one-off/postnatal/full spectrum sessions.
