Introducing the Hampshire Doulas

One of the brilliant things about doulas is that we will come to you so we worry about the distance, not you. Most of the Hampshire doulas are happy to travel up to an hour. This means if you’re in Hampshire you’ve got the choice of pretty much everyone. Many of the doulas are also very happy to work in neighbouring counties. The most important thing about choosing the right doula for you is to find the person who feels right, who you feel the most comfortable with. It usually helps to read through all the different doulas’ profiles (make sure you click the link on each doulas name to read their full profile and contact details) and then contact the ones that catch your eye. Meet up with a few for a chat before you make the decision about which doula is the best match for you.

Our doulas work all over Hampshire including Winchester, Basingstoke, Southsea, Portsmouth, Andover, Southampton, Petersfield, Waterlooville, Stockbridge, Fareham, Gosport, Lymington, New Forest, Farnborough, Havant, Alton, Eastleigh.

Please be aware that this Find a Doula page is just a listing facility. Each doula is self-employed and is responsible for their own training, policies, actions and opinions. You are responsible for making sure you are satisfied with your own choice of doula and their training and scope of practice. Hampshire Doulas is not responsible for individual doulas but we try to work with people who have good training and integrity. We will listen carefully to any concerns as well as to any positive reviews of any of the doulas listed here.
