My name is Doreen Munroe, mum to 3 wonderful young women and grandmother to 5 beautiful and amazing girls (aged 9 months, 3 years, 5 years and 8 years old).
I want you to know that on this journey into motherhood, whether it be for the first time or the umpteenth time, you are not alone, and I would count it a privilege to accompany you on that journey.
These last couple of years have been a hard for all of us. We never expected this virus to affect us in the way it has or for such a long time. As a Doula I’d like to join you on your journey to motherhood. I’d like to support you so that you have a positive antenatal, birthing and postnatal experience and can enjoy that Brave Art of Motherhood – even on the hard days when Covid restrictions seem to suck the joy from us.
I have plenty of experience around birthing mums, as I have attended several births including C-Sections, Water birth, forceps assisted and natural births and each time I have been honoured to be a part of the journey these mums have been on.
I have also been very involved in supporting women during their postnatal period, encouraging them whether they have chosen to breast feed or bottle feed. The early days can be stressful for new mums and so I am always at the end of the phone for those times when encouragement is needed or questions need answered. Recently I have been involved postnataly with twins who were born at 32 weeks, spent 5 weeks in NICU and are now thriving and breast feeding well, this has been a tough journey for the parents but very rewarding for me to be a part of their journey.
As well as providing Doula support I also run Hynobirthing classes to help enable families to experience the calm and relaxed birth they desire.
I am also a qualified First Aid trainer and am willing to demonstrate the skills needed for CPR or choking etc to my clients.
Please contact me and we can have a chat to talk about your needs and wishes and you can decide if I am the right fit for you on your journey.
