Antenatal Classes, Breastfeeding Support
I am a mum of two boys. One birthed in hospital and one in water at home. I mixed feed my first born and exclusive breastfeed my second son and continued to bf him until he was 16 months.
I decided to became a doula as I believe every birth matter and how we give a birth matters. I support mothers in home births, hospital birth, induction births and after cesareans. Because I believe every woman deserve continuous care.
Being a doula gives me the perfect opportunity to invest the time prenatally to impart knowledge to women and then support them in their birth experience. I am trained by Nottinghamshire NHS as a breastfeeding and perinatal supporter, my training was approved by UNICEF UK.
I believe that to making an informed choices is a key to having a birth that you planned and dream of. I prepare mothers for birth antenatally by sharing the most recent knowledge with them. As Diana Korte said “If you don’t know your options, you don’t have any.” It is very important to me to be up to date with any newest research on pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding.
I fight with myths, I share a truth and I help woman to have a good birth experience. This is why I became a doula. To spread a truth about birth. And the truth is we are strong and we have a power to bring a new life into world. If woman can create a life, give a birth to a new human being and feed him for first 6 months – she can do literally everything. As you might noticed… I just love our bodies <3
