Starfall Doula 

I'm Claire Salem (aka Kash) and I am a yoga teacher and doula based in Glastonbury Somerset.

Alongside weekly yoga classes, I offer a range of services for expectant parents, right through from ante-natal preparation, to birth support to helping you adjust to life with your new baby.

My goal is that, through provision of support, information and care, parents become empowered to experience pregnancy, birth and parenthood with confidence.

What can a doula do for you?

The purpose of a doula is to provide emotional and practical support for families as they bring a new member into the world.

More specifically, Starfall Doula can offer:
  • A knowledgeable and supportive birth partner, for hospital birth, home birth or caesarean birth.
  • Information and support in planning your birth.
  • Antenatal preparation.
  • Act as an advocate and facilitate communication between parents and medical staff.
  • Non judgemental, non directive counsel when making decisions regarding birth or childcare.
  • Support for birth partners (such as fathers) to empower them to confidently support the birthing mother.
  • Blessingways and rites of motherhood.
  • Complimentary therapies.
  • Assistance at home in caring for the newborn.
  • Assistance at home by caring for the mother, older siblings and household.¬†
