Antenatal, postnatal and baby classes
I live in Harrow with my husband and three children, born in 2008, 2012 and 2016.
Since 2013 I’ve been teaching antenatal and baby classes in the Harrow/Hillingdon area. I love being a part of such a special journey through pregnancy and into motherhood and seeing mums (and dads) grow in confidence as they work through their choices and find the right paths for their family. After working with families antenatally and then meeting them again in baby classes I can see the gap in care that exists once baby arrives and so I wanted to be able to offer better continuity of support as a postnatal doula.
I am hugely passionate and all things birth, postnatal and baby. In all of my roles I want to make sure you feel confident and supported in what you are doing. I won’t tell you what to do but I will listen and help you find information to make decisions you are happy with and which are the right ones for your family.
As your postnatal doula I’ll be the extra pair of hands you need as you settle into life with a new baby and I want to help you have the most positive time you can as you embark on this exciting phase of your life. You might need someone to hold the baby while you sleep or shower, some help with siblings, help with breast or bottle feeding, some practical help around the house, a listening ear, or reliable information sources. I will look to support you in the ways you need.
Every family will have different needs and we can tailor support to suit you. My aim is to help you get the rest and recovery time you need, give you space to bond with your baby and find your confidence with your new family. If you need to talk I can be your sounding board, non judgemental, but able to support your choices and offer you the evidence based information you need to get there.
I will be traveling to you by bike or public transport so please get in touch to check I can support you, even if your postcode/area is not listed. Most of my available time will be around school hours but we can chat about your requirements and my availability.

Beth supported me for a couple of months following a post natal depression diagnosis. Her calming presence, sound knowledge of and experience with babies was a huge comfort to me – a first time mum – during this really difficult time. The time she spent with my daughter (and knowing my daughter was in a safe pair of hands) gave me some much needed rest and time to myself to aid my recovery. Thank you Beth!
Beth has been a huge, huge help to me and our family with our twin babies and also our two pre-schoolers. I really needed the extra support when the twins arrived and Beth was super both in providing considered advice, being there to have a chat and blow off some steamand giving practical help with the babies and older children to give me a bit of a rest. I really like her down to earth attitude and her ability to get stuck in, whether that’s holding a baby, changing a nappies, doing some light housework or reading to the older siblings while I have some time out. The kids love her and she has been great with the babies, so much so that she still does 2 days a week and the babies are 7 months! Thanks Beth!
