DOULA

what is a post natal doula?

 
Mothering the Mother...
 

A 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 in the mothers home. Doulas are not medically trained.

AVAILABILITY & BOOKING

We recommend getting in touch and arranging a meeting with MummaMac to establish if she is the right doula for you. We want to make sure that there is a natural connection between you, as she will be there at an important time in your life while you transition into motherhood or adapt with you family in welcoming new family members. This initial consultation is free and it is worth while meeting in person. Please get in touch (send us an equiry/ email/ text/ what app or use our contact page. ) You can get in touch during your pregnancy or during your mummahood journey… the time is always right!

On booking post natal doula services with Mumma MAC, you will be asked to enter into a contact with MummaPod and this will request you to make a full upfront payment for the post natal doula hours booked in order to secure the booking.

Refunds are only available should any sad and unexpected circumstances arise after pre-booking MummaMAC (miscarriage/loss of your baby), and you will therefore, not be requiring a post natal doula.
