Doula Services

Tina Gibbs – Doula

I offer the following doula services remotely (via Zoom or WhatsApp) or in-person (where COVID-19 restrictions allow).

Pregnancy Support

You are pregnant and you are overwhelmed by all the advice, choices and recommendations? Here is how I can help you!

As a pregnancy support doula I will walk alongside you during your pregnancy and help you find the information you are looking for. There are so many misleading and false news out there. I can help you identify trustworthy and evidence-based information and sources of support. All to enable and empower you to make informed decisions and the right choices for you and your family!

I can also provide mindful hypnobirthing classes/sessions, antenatal education and infant feeding education to you as part of the package.

Birth support

How do you feel about your pregnancy? Your birth? How would you like to feel? What is most important to you for your birth? ​

Hiring a doula is an investment in your mental and physical health. An investment in your lasting memories of the birth of your baby. Whether it is your first or fifths baby, each birth experience will stay with you for as long as you live. Each birth matters, you matter, memories matter!
