WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM ME

 

I will always do my best to support you from the moment you engage me as your doula right through to two weeks post birth. In the event that further support is required an arrangement can be made for ongoing care.

 

I will provide you with honest and objective information and give you clear and informed options based on your desired outcomes for your birth.

 

I will organise appointments at regular intervals and remain contactable between appointments via telephone and email. This is to ensure you are supported wholeheartedly throughout all stages of your pregnancy, birth and early post natal and parenting periods.

 

I will support you and your wishes for your birthing day. I support all births whether at home, birthing centres, public or private hospitals.

 

I work alongside other complimentary therapists when circumstances are outside of my scope of care. Where appropriate, together with your consent I may refer you to one of these practitioners for additional support for you and your baby’s health and wellbeing. Some examples may include midwives, osteopaths, naturopaths, chiropractors, massage therapists and other services.

 

All information you share with me will be kept in confidence. 

 

WHAT I CAN EXPECT FROM YOU

 

Please inform me if there is something I say or do that upsets you. This way I get the opportunity to acknowledge your upset and apologise to you as soon as possible.

 

Please share with me any questions and concerns you may have along the way…..……This way I can ensure your needs are being met at all times.

 

Thank you for considering Pickles and Ice Cream Birth Support Services to support you in this special time.
