Lives in: Conisbrough DN12
Local info and availability:
All of South Yorkshire and I will also travel within an hour of Conisbrough.
I'm happy to do "Distance Doula'ing" over the phone or Zoom. I'm also a Babywearing Consultant and run the local sling and cloth nappy library. I am a 3 Step Rewind practioner, specifically trained to help with birth trauma. Other services I offer are Mother Blessings and a postnatal massage called Closing the Bones.
Hi and welcome!
If you’ve found your way here, I expect you are expecting, so congratulations!
I’m Abby, a Recognised Doula through Doula UK.
I offer Birth and Postnatal Doula support in and around South Yorkshire plus Distance Doula’ing support over the phone or Zoom, too.
As your Doula, I’m there to support you in whatever way you feel is best; my care is tailored to you and your needs.
I can accompany you to antenatal appointments and signpost you to evidence based research without telling you what you “should” do; this is your birth.
As a hand to hold, a shoulder to cry on and someone to truly listen to you, I can be the safe space you need when sometimes it feels like everyone is telling you what to do. When was the last time you felt listened to? It can be a powerful experience.
I offer Birth and Postnatal packages as well as Babywearing Support which can also be found under the Noah’s Arc Sling Library banner.
As your birth Doula, I’ll be there to meet with you antenatally to get to know you and to establish what you need from me.
I am there to signpost you to resources so that you can make an informed decision about your birth and your care as well as being there for more hands on, physical support during your birth – if that’s what you want!
The service you get is entirely tailored to your needs. I’m there to serve you and your birth partner if applicable, to ensure you feel listened to and supported in your choices.
I support your birth whether it’s your first or your last, whether that is at home or in hospital, whether it’s in the pool or an elective cesarean; I support you.
Postnatally, I can help with breastfeeding and signpost you if it’s not something I’m able to help with. I can come round to help with light housework, make you a cuppa, walk the dog, entertain the toddler or cuddle the baby if that’s what you need. I also offer a Closing the Bones massage, too, which is really nurturing and relaxing.
I’m a proud mum of four little people including twins.
Let’s have a cuppa and a chat and see if we click.
