All Geelong and Surfcoast Doula Services doulas operate under a code of practice and are experienced birth professionals.
Geelong and Surfcoast Doula Services was established in January 2010 and has been supporting women in Public Hospitals, Private Hospitals, Homes and Birth Centres in Geelong and surrounding areas.
We provide pregnancy and birth support to all women including those planning vaginal births, vaginal birth after caesarean/s (VBAC), elective caesarean section, emergency caesarean section, challenging pregnancies, women facing fears of birth, and first time or tenth time mums.
We also offer certified professional doula training to people wanting to pursue a career in birth support via the Certificate in Doula Support Services.
So what is a Birth Doula ?
Essentially , your Obstetrician or Midwife can answer all the questions you have about your birth. Your Doula helps you work out the questions you need answered.
Birth Doulas are trained professionals with experience in child birth. We are independent and specialise in a non medical role. We do not do the same job as a midwife or doctor, our role is complimentary to the medical team.
