Birth (Recognised since April 2015)
Lives in: Stroud GL6
Local info and availability:
I am based near Stroud, Gloucestershire and cover all of Gloucestershire and most of Bristol, Wiltshire, Worcestershire and Herefordshire.
I’m Alex. I live in France Lynch, Stroud, Gloucestershire with my husband, 3 kids and an assortment of much loved mutts and the odd horse.
I have given birth to three gorgeous kids and have four lovely step-children. I discovered my inner birth geek during my second pregnancy when I was supported and nurtured by an amazing birth worker.
My doula journey began when I trained with Michel Odent and Liliana Lammas on the Paramana Doula course in 2013. Michel Odent is a world renowned obstetrician who has, throughout his career, pioneered ‘woman centred’ maternity care. Liliana Lammas is an incredibly experienced doula.
I balance working as a doula with raising 3 kids, looking after our assortment of animals, riding my horses and hanging out with my husband and friends.
I became a doula because I believe that women should be nurtured, empowered and supported throughout pregnancy and birth.
I look forward to connecting with you.
