Introducing the Hampshire Doulas
The most important thing about choosing the right doula for you is to find the person who feels right, who you feel the most comfortable with and whose values align with yours. It usually helps to read through all the different doulas’ profiles (make sure you click the link on each doulas name to read their full profile and contact details) and then contact the ones that catch your eye. Meet up with a few for a chat with a list of questions that allow you to get a good idea if their values and beliefs are well matched with yours before you make the decision about which doula is the best match for you.
Our doulas work all over Hampshire including Winchester, Basingstoke, Southsea, Portsmouth, Andover, Southampton, Petersfield, Waterlooville, Stockbridge, Fareham, Gosport, Lymington, New Forest, Farnborough, Havant, Alton, Eastleigh.
Please be aware that our Find a Doula page is just a listing facility. Each doula is self-employed and is responsible for their own training, policies, actions, and opinions. Parents are responsible for making sure they are satisfied with their own choice of doula and their training and scope of practice. As a listing facility, we are not responsible for the content of any external websites linked from our site. Hampshire Doulas is not responsible for individual doulas
