We are Florence and Kat, two local doulas who have formed "Worcestershire Doulas" in order to bring our empowering family centred Doula support services, and Antenatal & Parenting Preparation Course "Back2Basics" to Worcestershire and surrounding areas.
With over 20 years combined experience, as busy, working doulas who attend births regularly, we know that birth is different for everyone and therefore any preparation and support has to be tailored to the needs of each individual family. We are doulas for every family - straight or disabled, first time mum or LGBTQI+ family, complex needs or surrogacy. We have supported all types of families through their journey into parenting and understand how important good preparation is as part of the process.
This is the main reason why we have created the Back2Basics programme. Although there are many good courses on offer, we were surprised by the number of women we were meeting who were still left feeling unprepared and disappointed after their baby's birth in spite of having attended an antenatal preparation course.
As doulas that support and prepare families for birth on a 1-2-1 level, we began to wonder if there was a way to use our experience of preparing clients for birth and early parenting, to create a course that could be delivered in a social group setting, whilst keeping the same personalised, flexible approach.
We hope you will find our Back2Basics antenatal course a refreshing change.
We also offer "shared care" Doula support services as Worcestershire Doulas, which allows us to offer even more flexibility and availability as birth and postnatal doulas to all our clients.
