When Do I Hire a Doula?

I am often asked "when is the right time to contact or hire a Doula?", my answer, anytime throughout your pregnancy. I have been contacted as early as 5 weeks, and as late as 39 weeks pregnant. For myself an inquiry is never too early or too late. As for booking we tend to book anytime after 12 weeks, however inquiring earlier is often recommended as we can support you through the first trimester when many questions and changes come up. Although we tend to book up quickly following 12 weeks it is always worth contacting a Doula at any stage in your pregnancy as availability can come up last minute, or sometimes we can make it work for you (babies don't always arrive on or near their "due date". So at any point contact a Doula that you are interested in working with.
