Becoming a parent is a crazy, incredible, amazing business. While the journey is different for everyone, choosing a doula who you click with can really help you find your way.
I would love to help you in any way that I can & as a mother of two, I know how terrifying yet exciting it can be. Both my births were supported by hypnobirthing techniques & doula support, though they were both very different experiences, they were both very positive due to the help I received. My postnatal experience with my second baby was truly special as I had great postnatal support from an amazing doula, so know first hand the benefits of having someone to help in those early weeks & days.
Whatever you want for your birth or postnatal period, I am here to support you. As your postnatal doula I can help you get informed about the benefits of preparing for this time with practical tools through my postnatal planning workshop for the time when you are establishing yourself as a family. We can talk together through all your preferences & get to know each other to make it easier when you are settling in to new parenthood. In person I can help you with breastfeeding, safe sleep & emotional support. Practically I can help with light household chores, laundry, helping with the baby & I can keep you well fed with nutritious, healthy meals which are culturally appropriate to your family. As a hypnobirthing teacher I can also support your journey to birth with relaxation techniques & as a reflexologist I can help your body to prepare & recover with gentle, relaxing foot massage. First and foremost I am here for you, as you navigate your way through this new period in your life with compassion & kindness.
I graduated from the Side by Side doula training course, one of the few fully inclusive doula training courses, so I am here to support your choices as a Black, Asian, marginalised ethnicity or LGBTQ family.
Now I’ve covered all the serious stuff, here’s a bit about me. I love comedy, Marvel films & singing (my other job is singing opera). I can bring a lightness to your care whilst also making your choices and wishes my highest priority. I will be there for you while you adjust to life as a new family with a smile & compassion to protect the positive postnatal space we will create.
