Hello, nice to meet you!
I'm Shannon. I'm currently based in Desborough, with my little family - my fiance, Luke and my two boys Arlo and Nova (aged 3 and 1). We enjoy spending as much time together outside as possible and are always planning our next adventures.
I realized quickly after giving birth, that people offer to look after baby (in the form of cuddles), but no one really looks after the parents. Society expects you to find your feet very quickly and it is hard. I believe that families cannot have enough support during this massive life transition. It was this realization that lead me to explore training as a doula.
I trained with Developing Doulas earlier this year and am currently mentored. This means that I have support from an experienced doula while supporting you and have someone to debrief with, to help me grow and learn in my role.
I am passionate about empowering mothers to make confident informed decisions, and to trust wholeheartedly in their bodies. Your body, your birth, your baby.
"There is a secret in our culture, and it's not that birth is painful. It's that women are strong."
