Calm Birth Doula Support

Our Edinburgh Calm Birth Doula Support can provide you and your partner with a familiar and comforting presence during the birth of your baby. This can help to take the pressure off you and your partner, as well as making sure you have all the information you need to make informed decisions so that you feel calm and in control of your birth choices.

What is a doula?

During the birth, a doula will be a support to you and your partner. She will be very sensitive to the emotional bond and intimate connection between you and your partner and will work intuitively with you both during the birth responding to your individual needs as the birth experience unfolds. At times this will mean she remains quietly in the background or will leave the room for a while to give the couple private time together: at other times, especially as the childbirth intensifies, she may become more involved with guidance on position changes and may offer other comfort measures such as massage and relaxation techniques, if these are desired.

Why hire a doula?

Recent research has highlighted that the presence of a doula during childbirth can reduce the length of childbirth and reduce the incidence of induction, augmentation, episiotomies and caesarean sections. Women supported by a doula can feel reassured, safe, calm and in control of their birth experience.

 

Calm Birth Support

Our warm and wonderful doula, Robyn Theobald, offers doula support for pregnant women and their birth partners in the lead up to, during and following their childbirth experience. 

 
Robyn helped us feel supported in our birth choices from the moment we met until we delivered our firstborn at home. She very quickly felt like our friend but by the end was like family. She had helpful hints for our preparations and at the birth she seemed possessed of psychic powers, taking care of things ranging from helpful to absolutely essential as we passed through labour, birth and into the beginnings of our new life as a family. Robyn has been our rock in this amazing process, always there for us, always helping... we can’t imagine anyone more suitable. She has truly left her mark on our lives and has helped make our baby’s birth magical.
