My name is Alexandra and I live in Thames Ditton, Surrey with my partner, my two children and two step children ranging in age from 5 to 10.
I have always viewed motherhood as a blessing. To me it is has been a privilege to have given birth to and raise my children. Since having my daughter in 2011 I have dedicated my life to bringing up and nurturing my children which I love and feel totally fulfilled by. Raising my children has been and I believe will continue to me the biggest achievement in my life.
Once my son started school becoming a doula seemed like a natural progression. I love to look after people – to make them feel special, secure, listened to – To feel looked after.
As a postnatal doula I tailor my services to meet your family’s needs. l provide non-judgemental, practical and emotional support whether that be an extra pair of hands to help around the house, a listening ear or as a source of information and guidance.
The first few days and weeks after a birth are so precious. It’s a snippet of motherhood that should be treasured and celebrated. This is a time when a mother should also be mothered and allowed to recover her strength. In my role as a Doula, I aim to ensure that a mother feels ready to face motherhood feeling confident and above all healthy in mind and body.
It would be my absolute privilege to support any parent with their first steps into the journey of parenthood or perhaps help with your expanding family?
