Postnatal (Recognised since September 2012)
Lives in: Witney OX29
Local info and availability:
I cover North & central Cotswolds, East Gloucestershire & West Oxfordshire & Hampshire. My availability is flexible to suit specific requirements.
Very flexible doula services- daytime & overnight. In person & virtual consultations on feeding, sleep support & weaning.
I trained as a Nursery Nurse in 1988 & then qualified as a Registered General Nurse in 1992.
I’ve worked for many years in the field of child health and education, as a school nurse & then in the community.
Alongside supporting families & their precious new arrivals, I also coordinate a domiciliary team, which provides home care services for people through all ages & stages of life.
I am a life long doula!
I have been working as a qualified postnatal doula since 2008, and in that time I have had the privilege of supporting lots of wonderful families, many with twins.
I’m now very experienced at baby juggling!
During my own first pregnancy, I felt that I was embarking on a race! This race would be the biggest adventure of my life – motherhood. It’s a journey that has been (and still continues to be) exhilarating, frustrating, exciting, rewarding, but at times very scary.
As with any race, the ‘start’ can make all the difference. I was very fortunate to be surrounded by supportive friends and family who ensured that I ‘got off the blocks’ to a great start! I’m convinced that this support and encouragement is vital for all new parents, and that’s why I feel so passionate about providing a doula service that does just that.
