Ad-Hoc Ante-Natal Support



First 45 minutes – FREE

£23 per hour + mileage (first 15 miles of round trip at no charge)

If the thought of a full package is too much for you to consider at the moment, but you do anticipate the need to speak and connect more widely about topics that are affecting you in pregnancy and in your 4th trimester, then I can offer an ad-hoc ante-natal doula support service.

If you are pregnant, or newly postnatal you can contact me for a free one-off chat (maximum 45 mins) to discuss anything that’s on your mind. 

After that initial contact you may realise that you need or want more sustained support, you can book me for ad-hoc support (a maximum of 1.5 hours per session) charged at £25 per hour, or progress to a full pregnancy and ante-natal doula support service. 

This is a fluid offer, you may find that you want to book more than one session, but I will always follow up each call with an email with related links and information to our conversation.

What my customers say about this service: 

“I met Melanie for some ad hoc chats and support. She was so open and easy to talk to, I felt very comfortable. We discussed lots of different aspects of pregnancy and birth and she was very knowledgeable with the current info and guidelines. I went on to have the homebirth that I’d planned feeling confident and trusting my body which I believe was in part to Melanie ❤️

I also feel that Melanie’s ad hoc services provide accessible support financially for those who can’t afford to have a doula in the traditional sense.” 

Please note that this service will not be available at weekends, after 6pm or when I am on call for a birth.
