Doula Services

Tina Gibbs – Doula

I offer the following doula services remotely (via Zoom or WhatsApp) or in-person (where COVID-19 restrictions allow). I’ll work in Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire and are happy to travel within 60-minute drive from NG13 where I live. I am bilingual in German and English.

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!

I’ll be happy to attend your birth at Nottingham QMC & City hospitals, St. Mary’s Maternity Hospital in Melton Mowbray or at your home in Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire or Leicestershire (within 60-minute drive from NG13). I also offer all my services remotely using zoom which are available worldwide.

Shared Care doula packages

I work together with Sophie Fletcher, and we offer a shared care package.

Shared care is a way that doulas work together to bring our complementary skills and experience to your birth experience. This model includes three antenatal appointments. One with Tina, one with Sophie and one with both of us together, which means you’ll get the experience, knowledge and wisdom of us both. Furthermore, you’ll get to know both of us so that when you call us for your birth, you are guaranteed to be supported by someone you know, you trust and have a developed a relationship with.

The package include an on-call rota but if we are both available on the day, and you have a long labour, we can ‘tag team’ and support you.

It also means that, if you find that, after your baby is born, need some postnatal support, you already know me as a postnatal doula!

The fee for shared care is £1399 + travel

If you prefer two doulas who can both commit to being at your birth – for our particular skills or because you have additional needs.

The fee for the double-doula packages is £1999 + travel

  • Opportunity to reflect on your recent birth experience.
  • Reassurance and encouragement regarding feeding options and techniques, whichever way you have chosen to feed your baby.
  • Practical help within your home environment
  • Support your wider family
  • Gives you a chance to sleep, rest & bond with your baby

Postpartum Doula services are charged and can be booked on an hourly basis at £25/hr. Minimum booking is 2hrs. The fee for 20hrs is £420 and 40hrs are £800.
