As a Continuum Doula a deeper journey for a longer time is offered to families. Six meetings of 1.5 hours are spent together antenatally from whenever feels right for you. On call service and support throughout the birthing experience for all the family. As well as another 6 meetings of 1.5-hours, spread out however is needed, postnatally, to continue to support all the family to adjust and overcome any potential obstacles. With this package a consistency is achieved which is often not present through other services that come through the current NHS system. A deeper sense of safety and holding comes with the stronger connection that occurs.

Gauri will support you in knowing your choices and hold the time and space you might need to feel sure. Through her soft and gentle approach, Gauri will listen, and hold you however you need to be held as a family, through this transformative time in your lives.
Gauri asks you to imagine her as the greater 'hug' in the Doula role - the hug around the Partner hugging the Mother and the Mother hugging the Baby. Holding an outer bubble of Love.
