Birth Doula Services for Mothers Birthing Again: Dublin Doula

Mothers who have given birth before often hire a doula for their subsequent birth. Its not unusual at all! Often it is because their first experience was not what they hoped it would be and they would like for this subsequent birth to be different, more supported and more empowering. Or, its for exactly the opposite reason, and that is that their previous birth(s) went really well and they want to ensure the same experience again. This is especially true if they had a doula before and valued the experience and start to mothering.

I offer several doula packages for mothers birthing again.

1. Basic  Birth Doula Package : Krysia Lynch

  • Two  antenatal visits in your own home to discuss your needs in labour and to help you make a birth preference plan should you want one. Including birth preparation techniques suitable for you and your partner. These sessions take place between 32 and 38 weeks depending on what suits you and your availability and time of booking
