Cardiff’s Birth Partner Project gives women access to birth partner support during pregnancy, birth and the first weeks with their new-born baby. It provides the following for women without a birth partner who cannot pay for a Doula:
Support in pregnancy to understand choices and prepare for birth
Support during established labour from a trained, volunteer birth partner
Support and friendship in the days after the birth of their baby
Signposting to appropriate sources of information and help
It takes referrals from GPs, Midwives, Obstetricians, Health Visitors, Voluntary Sector Organisations and Local Authorities. Speak to your midwife if you would like to be referred.
