I offer a personal bespoke service always giving total commitment and integrity to you as my client. I will explore all avenues of interest with you and always strive to go the extra mile and beyond. Your Birthing Buddy is all about you!

    Free initial consultation to chat about if I am the right doula for you. This is a crucial part of the very first meeting.
    Further appointments to be agreed so we can discuss your hopes fears and develop your birth plan/birth wish list.
    Phone, text and email contact throughout your pregnancy up to 6 weeks after the birth.
    I can attend scans and appointments if required and agreed.
    I offer a 24 hour on call service from 38 weeks to 42 weeks.
    Labour support at the place of birth – I will be there for you and by your side offering as much practical emotional and physical support as I can. I will not leave you, I don’t work shifts so you will never be on your own.
    Immediate support after the birth for about 2-3 hours or until baby is feeding well.
    I can offer feeding assistance if required, I have breastfeeding experience and bottle feeding experience too.
    Continued phone, text and email support up to an agreed postnatal time scale.
    Antenatal visits and support (to be agreed) – this is when you can reflect on the experiences you have had and together we can work through any issues you may be experiencing.

  • About Me:

    A very warm welcome from Your Birthing Buddy Claire.

    I am a wife to Mark and a mum to 3 beautiful children, Jack, Katy and Freddie. I find it a privilege to live in the lovely historic town of Beverley which offers so much towards my family needs.

    I consider myself a “people person” who wants to make a difference. Yes, I’ve had my challenges in life and this has taught me who I want to be as well as the enormous satisfaction I get from helping others. I have evolved from my life experience and now I am comfortable in the knowledge that I have the skills and attitude which can help and benefit others.

    Having trained and worked as a voluntary Doula I soon realised the need for a more intense education and completed the Nurturing Birth course to become a Mentored Doula as well as a member of Doula UK. I am also an active Antenatal and Birth Educator which I presently teach in Hull on a weekly basis.

    The understanding that all Mothers are different and deserve a caring and compassionate approach to pregnancy and childbirth has allowed me to explore the opportunities to help and offer guidance. It remains my mission to provide help, support and offer evidence based knowledge whilst never forgetting that all Mothers are individuals and their wishes must be respected. I believe we are all unique, yet the fundamentals of a client’s consideration and dignity will never be forgotten during the amazing journey of childbirth.

    It was my experiences as a Mother, and as a trained and qualified Doula, that led me to starting my own business, Your Birthing Buddy.

    I consider I have the qualities to fulfil the expectations of any mum to be as well as their partner. I would really love to empower all couples or individuals with this knowledge, so that, at every step of the journey, you are treated with compassion, dignity and respect which will reward you with the wonderful gift of life.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me for an informal and confidential chat where I would be pleased to demonstrate the best services tailored to your specific requirements.

    I look forward to hearing from you with the hope of building a trustworthy and mutually rewarding relationship.

    Love from Claire…..Your Birthing Buddy
