In this work we study unfoldings of planar vector fields in a neighbourhood of a resonant saddle. We give a $\mathcal C^k$ normal form for the unfolding with respect to the conjugacy relation. Using our normal form we determine an asymptotic development, uniform with respect to the parameters, of the Dulac time of a resonant saddle deformation. Conjugacy relation instead of weaker equivalence relation is necessary when studying the time function. The Dulac time of a resonant saddle can be seen as the basic building block of the total period function of an unfolding of a hyperbolic polycycle.
