The miracle of birth and the journey to parenthood is a momentous experience. It is wonderful to openheartedly recognize and prepare for the arrival of precious new life. A prebirth doula is especially helpful if you are feeling anxious, would like to learn more about natural birth or are experiencing a challenging pregnancy for whatever reason. Knowing that there is someone you can trust available and present can reduce stress and help you and your family to relax, prepare for and enjoy birth and beyond. I offer therapy sessions in Edinburgh or via skype, please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or would like to chat about how I might assist you on your journey. I am a member of the Scottish Doula Network, you will find lots of other wonderful doulas there.
"It was lovely to have a female companion on the journey. Someone I could be very open and honest with, someone to share my fears and concerns with. Often when I met with Fiona I was feeling scared or tearful but by the end of our meeting I would feel optimistic and hopeful again. She has a very gentle but effective approach. I have such gratitude for Fiona and the tireless support she has given me through this process. She is inherently a very beautiful, warm and loving soul with a deceptive strength of character." (A, doula client)
"Thank you again for helping in every way - it made 100% difference to how I felt and how the outcome was reached - I am very grateful." (K, mother after a vbac)
