Shared Care Support
Shared care provides extra support for everyone, leaving us all feeling confident! This model of care allows you to build a special relationship with two doulas for the price of one and learn from both our specialized skill sets. It also means that in the rare case that we have two births at the same time or very close together, you get a doula who is rested and ready to support your birth fully.
Please feel free to contact me to discuss your family’s unique needs and learn more about the options of shared care. We can set up a free consult to get to know each other and find out how we can best support you.
My team members and I have expertise in a variety of complimentary prenatal, birth and postnatal areas, each with our own strengths. You’ll get access to all our specialized skills!
As we’re both there, every step of the way, you will be familiar and comfortable with whichever doula attends your birth. You can feel extra confident that you’re in great hands.
We’re both there during at least one prenatal session and one of your postnatal visits. That means more hands on support, for you, your family and baby!

My husband and I were very happy with the post-natal support Kate and Ruth provided following the birth of our twins. They were very informed and provided very helpful considerations during the first few weeks of the babies' lives. We would definitely recommend Kate and Ruth.
