These types of calls are mostly taken by Doulas within their first few years of working. We talk about how your work is going: praising your achievements and looking deeper into the challenges you have been facing. Business planning can be covered too, including how to get started or how to transform your websites, social media and your local marketing, with a view to seeing if any services at my Birthy Media wing are of use.

There’s a lot at stake when you make the move away from secure employment within the NHS, but the notion to grapple with should be self employment versus fully employed, NOT whether there is ‘work’ or purpose for you outside of the system. How can you continue serving women and families in childbearing without your NHS Midwife status? Come and ask!
