Harriet is currently a student NCT doula. An important part of training for this role is that Harriet is required to support a woman or couple through birth with the support of the NCT doula tutors. Your baby needs to be due between the end of February and mid-April 2021 for you to be able to consider asking Harriet to be your birth doula. The fee to support you has been appropriately set to recognise the fact that she is a student.
