Welcome to Graceful Birth

I am a Doula based in Congleton, Cheshire serving:

  • Macclesfield District General Hospital
  • Leighton Hospital
  • North Staffordshire University Hospital
  • Wythenshawe Hospital in South Manchester
  • Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport
  • St. Mary’s Hospital, Manchester
  • Home births in Cheshire, Staffordshire and greater Manchester

Having a Doula at your birth can make a difference.  Numberous studies, including the Cochrane Report, show several advantages women have when they use a doula for their birth. Here are just a few:

  • Shorter Labour Time
  • Labours with fewer complications
  • Less negative feelings about one’s childbirth experience
  • Less incidence of forceps or vacuum extraction and caesareans
  • Less likely to need narcotic pain killers or epidural anaesthesia
  • Less incidence of post natal depression
  • Higher chance of successful breastfeeding
