1:1 Hypnobirthing, Placenta Remedies Services
*I AM NOW ON MATERNITY LEAVE UNTIL 2020*
If you’ve landed on my profile I’m guessing you’re pregnant or have a newborn- CONGRATULATIONS!
I’m Charlotte, a Doula UK recognised birth doula, mentored postnatal doula, compassionate hypnobirthing teacher and a placenta remedies specialist.
I have one daughter Lyla, who was born in December 2015 and I decided I wanted to be a doula after recovering from postnatal depression at the beginning of 2017.
I truly believe all women deserve the best start to motherhood possible, whether it’s your first baby or your fourth! Whatever that ‘best start’ looks like for you, as your birth doula or/and postnatal doula I will provide informational, emotional and practical support.
I can support you however and wherever you choose to give birth. I do not care if it is drug free or not, I just want it to feel positive for you.
Positive birth is something I am really passionate about and when I’m not with Lyla or supporting my clients I am on the Bromley Maternity Voices committee trying to help improve maternity services in the borough of Bromley for all women.
I have experience with homebirths, inductions, ceasarens, natural birth and working at different hospitals in South East London, Kent and Surrey. As a postnatal doula I have worked with children of different ages and have vast experience with children from previous jobs as a nanny and an Ofsted registered childminder.
I really love my job and I like to add to my skill set so I can better support other women and their families…
Continuing Professional Development
I am currently doing the Developing Doulas Breastfeeding Buddy course.
I did the Beyond Rebozo RCM accredited workshop in October 2017.
If you like what you read and would like to discuss me being your doula or any of my other services; feel free to give me a ring or drop me an email, I’d love to hear from you!
“Charlotte was brilliant and exactly what I needed in a doula. My labour was very long and even though she barely slept a wink, she was faithfully assisting me; making sure I stayed hydrated, providing positive affirmation and giving me the attention I needed.” Megan
“Charlotte was excellent support. It was obvious that she cared a lot about Megan and therefore I could trust her.” James
“Thank you again Charlotte for your support before, during and after the birth of our daughter. I will definitely recommend you to friends. You are keen to tune in to the mother’s individual needs and wishes and came super prepared for the birth. You were ready to do the extra steps to make me comfortable and relaxed. Both my husband and I benefited from your presence and support. Thanks again :)” Katarina
“Charlotte was approachable, knowledgeable and very friendly. She helped us get through a difficult birth.” Sam & Dan
“Charlotte, for me has been a saviour-even though I had my wonderful supportive husband but having a female who can breath through your labour pains with you at every contraction it got me through labour pretty smoothly. Without you I would have been panicking and all over the place. Thank you for taking care of my daughter as well through labour as that gave me peace of mind and I was able to concentrate on bringing my baby into this world. Xxx” Sandra
“As a new mother who had to go through some unexpected difficulties (as all mums do!) and with no family to support us here in the UK, I really needed that extra pair of hands to help me rest, feel more confident and calm in myself, eat better and enjoy my time with my baby. Charlotte did exactly that, doing whatever was needed in the house, baking lovely cakes and showing me what other support is available out there for new mums. And she is a relatively new mum herself which means she can really relate to your struggles.” Ipek
“Charlotte has been a life saver as a postnatal doula. She is wonderful with my toddler and my newborn alike and is happy to help out with keeping on top of the chaos in the flat too! I look forward to the afternoons she is here as alongside taking the pressure off me looking after 2 under 2 she is wonderful company. Thank you Charlotte!” Beth
I trained to be a doula with Kicki Hansard at BirthBliss Academy. I have an enhanced DBS and a clean driving licence.
