what is a birth doula?
A Birth Doula provides continuous support for the whole family through pregnancy, birth and the early days/ weeks of parenthood. Filling a role that new mothers and families have always needed, a doula will listen, give confidence and never judge. We offer flexible, practical and emotional support, be it in the hospital or in the mothers home. Doulas are not medically trained.

AVAILABILITY & BOOKING
We recommend getting in touch and arranging a meeting with Mumma Mac to establish if she is the right birth doula for you. We want to make sure that there is a natural connection between you, as she will be there at the most important time in your life. This initial consultation is free and it is worth while meeting in person. Your antenatal appointments can be arranged at a time that suits you, but we suggest the first meeting is between 30 and 35 weeks gestation and the second it round 36 weeks gestation.
Should you wish to commit to having Mumma MAC as your Birth Doula, we request a 100% upfront payment. Mumma MAC will not be able to go on call until this payment has been received.
You can also buy a birth doula directly for a loved one, which is an exceptionally kind gift. Should you wish to book Mumma MAC, please send us an enquiry to check availability and she will then direct you to our online shop.
Refunds are only available should any sad and unexpected circumstances arise after pre-booking Mumma MAC (miscarriage/loss of your baby), and you will therefore, not be requiring a doula,. A pro rata refund will be made accordingly.
