* What's the difference between a recognised and a mentored doula?

Mentored doulas

A Mentored Doula has completed a Doula UK approved Preparation Course and is involved in Doula UK's Recognition Process. This means that they have a Mentor providing support and supervision within a framework for reflective practice until they has gained sufficient experience to become a Recognised Doula. A Mentored Doula's fees reflect their previous and current experience, their expenses and the going rate in their area.

 

Recognised doulas

A Recognised Doula has been evaluated by a Doula UK Doula Mentor at the end of the Recognition Process, as having sufficient experience to practise without on-going mentoring. Doula UK nevertheless continues to provide support for all its members.

A note about fees: I try not to let money get in the way of supporting a family in urgent need or who cannot pay the fees in advance, so if this is something you are concerned about please get in touch. I may be able to accept an exchange of services or payment in instalments over a longer time.

Likewise, if after you have had your baby and you think that my fees are more than reasonable, you are very welcome to pay me more. Any additional money will be used to support someone who isn't as financially secure.

Please also note that Doula UK has a voucher scheme, so friends and family can buy you doula support.
