Birth Support

Doulas are for every family & every type of birth. Serving Hayling Island and the surrounding areas, I'd love to walk alongside you and help you prepare for your pregnancy, birth, & postpartum journey, and be present to support you on your birth day.

£800 | Last Minute Birth Support

During my time volunteering with Doulas Without Borders, I witnessed firsthand the profound impact that doula support can have on families during childbirth, even without extensive antenatal preparation. While I strongly believe that thorough birth preparation contributes significantly to a satisfying birthing experience, I understand the importance of offering a more affordable service option.

Please note that this service option has certain limitations in terms of what I can provide. However, it serves as a cost-effective alternative that can be complemented with individual preparation sessions tailored to your specific needs and preferences. Feel free to mix and match to create a support plan that suits you be.

It's crucial to emphasize that this option does not reserve my time in the diary. The fee is only payable if I am available to attend when you go into labor.

This service package includes one virtual antenatal session, as well as continuous birth support from established labor until ~2 hours after the baby is born. Rest assured, I am dedicated to providing unwavering support and guidance throughout this transformative journey for you and your birth partner.

£1500 | Full Birth Support 

This service is available for families from Hampshire or West Sussex, within a comfortable 2-hour drive from Hayling Island. It would be my honour to guide you through the incredible journey of childbirth, providing support both before and during labor, as well as in the initial weeks with your newborn. While I primarily serve clients within this designated catchment area, I am open to considering clients from outside this region; however, additional fees may be incurred to accommodate travel time and expenses.

This service package includes:

  • At least three personalised sessions during pregnancy, designed to prepare your body and mind for childbirth. These sessions are tailored to your specific needs, encompassing a wealth of information from my Preparation section.

  • Access to our extensive library of birth, newborn care, and parenting resources, as well as entry to my New Mama's Circles.

  • On-call support 24/7 during your labor and birth, commencing two weeks prior to your due date and continuing until the arrival of your baby.

  • Six weeks of postpartum support, including up to six visits dedicated to meeting your evolving needs. Whether it's providing assistance with newborn care, offering breastfeeding support, or lending a hand around the house, I am here to support you. Additionally, I offer the opportunity to debrief your birth experience and remain accessible via phone for ongoing support.

Every aspect of this service package is customised to accommodate the unique circumstances and preferences of your family. I am committed to ensuring that your journey through pregnancy, childbirth, and early parenthood is as smooth and empowering as possible.

£2000 | Birth Doula + Bump to Baby Photography

In addition to my doula services, I offer birth photography to capture the precious moments of your pregnancy journey, childbirth and magic of the newborn time. I'm committed to helping mothers and families create memories and stories they can look back on for years to come.

This service includes:

- the Full Birth Doula support as described above;

- digital photographs taken during pregnancy, birth and during the first 2 weeks after.

I am just starting my photography journey and currently collaborating with a professional photographer pre- and post-birth. During labour and birth my main focus is always on supporting you.I make sure I respect the atmosphere and privacy of the birthing couple, as I understand the difference that the calm and happy birth space can make.

"My husband and I were lucky enough to have Julia support me through my pregnancy right through to labour. Julia was always so supportive, kind and helpful when answering any questions or concerns I had. She was great at explaining things to me or helping me research information to help make the right decision for me. Julia is very easy to talk to and open minded, which when it comes to something so personal such a labour, it is essential.
Julia was so supportive during labour, it was very reassuring having her by my side. My husband also felt very supported having Julia with us. We are first time parents so this whole experience was new for us and we weren't sure what to expect. Having Julia with us was like having our own personal midwife with us through this whole journey. I'd definitely recommend Julia if you are lucky enough to be able to have a doula.
Julia was happy to give us so much of her time and followed up with us after the arrival of our little one, just to check how we were settling at home. What a lovely lady."
