Birth Support Doula’s

Have you ever considered the benefits of a Doula?

Michele Neild and Moira O’Connor are your Birthbalance Connect – Birth and Postpartum Doulas. Working as a close-knit team enables us to offer support 24/7. You will get to meet and form a trusting relationship with both of us during your pregnancy. (Please see our profiles on the home page to get to know us a little better).

Your amazing body already knows how to birth your baby… Your Birthbalance Connect support Doula’s role is to guide you and empower you to trust your body by building a trusting relationship and creating a safe, relaxed and caring environment without interruptions throughout your labour and birth. Your Doula will comfort you with emotional and physical support and encourage and support you and your birth companion to make positive informed decisions throughout your pregnancy and birthing journey.

Having a supportive Doula has proven to reduce pain levels in labour, reduce the need for medical pain management and medical interventions, as well as reducing the length of each phase of labour. Caring support from your Birthbalance Doula will enable you and your birth companion to relax and spend quiet time together during labour while empowering you both to have a positive birth experience. It is so important to have a supportive and trusting relationship with your doula, and at Birthbalance we take the time to get to know you and your birthing preferences.

We have a number of packages that we can build to suit your needs. Our ‘Birth Basics Package’ includes two pregnancy visits, supporting you throughout your labour and birth and first few hours after birth, and one postpartum visit. This package is $850.00. To this we can add massages and more postpartum support.
