Giving birth should be your greatest achievement, not your greatest fear.
What is a Doula?
A doula is a non-medical companion who supports a birthing woman by providing continuous care before, during, or after childbirth in the form of information, physical support, and emotional support.
I believe that everyone should be able to experience an empowering and positive birth, no matter what form that comes in. Vaginal birth, c-section, homebirth or VBAC – I’m here to support you whatever you choose.
If a family is informed of their choices, supported physically and emotionally and surrounded by love, birth is the most magical thing. As your doula, it is my job to support you in anyway you would like me too. I have knowledge surrounding aromatherapy in the birthing room and rebozo techniques to help you through labour more comfortably.
I’m also now offering birth photography – the perfect way to remember your journey into parenthood and the arrival of your sweet new babe.
It takes a village to raise a child, but society in 2019 isn’t very supportive of that. You're left alone with your new babe so quickly and sometimes with very little support available from friends and family members. If you need a listening ear, someone to look after your baby while you take a nap or shower, breast-feeding help, dinner putting on or even the washing hanging out, a doula is here to help you.
When our time together has come to an end, I hope to leave you feeling empowered, supported and informed.
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 have birth and postnatal care packages listed on my website to give you an idea of pricing, but am always happy to chat with you to arrange something bespoke to your needs. I can also supply gift vouchers for family and friends, redeemable against birth or postnatal care.
If you’re interested in having me as your doula, please get in touch for a no-obligatory chat – i’d love to hear from you!
