Virtual Support

At DoulaWorks we know that in person postpartum support is most beneficial. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are offering you the next best option, virtual support. You will still benefit from our experience, knowledge, personalized advise and our passion to support you during your postpartum time.

Virtual postpartum doula support.  


Package of 5 virtual postpartum visits for the first 5 days after your baby is born.

Support will be scheduled in the form of virtual face to face calls, via Skype, WhatsApp or Zoommeeting. If these are not available or problematic we could schedule a phone call.

Up to 90 minutes of call time, which can be broken down into two 45 minute calls throughout the day if you like.

You can also use WhatsApp to message us with any questions or concerns throughout the day, up to 10 messages  per day  from 7 am till 10 pm. We will answer your messages within an hour. If it’s something urgent that requires an immediate answer you can call us and we will usually answer you, or call you back straight away, day or evening. Should you require more support via messaging, we can add that on for an additional fee. 


CAPPA (our certifying body) has suggested a schedule. We have used it as a guide as to how virtual support may look like. This is just to give you an idea, and we can adjust it as needed to suit your needs.
