Hi, I’m Elin, a birth and postnatal doula based in Walthamstow, East London. I’m Swedish but have been living in London for almost 25 years now. I love the community spirit of Walthamstow and also that we are only a few minutes walk away from Epping Forest. I’m a mother to three children and a dog.
My experience of becoming a mother was so transformative and totally influenced my calling to become a doula. Motherhood can be a lonely place and I know how important it is to have other people around to support, all the way from pregnancy, birth to help create a calm, reassuring environment to post birth when adjusting to the new role as a mother and establishing breastfeeding.
I completed my course with Kate Woods at Conscious Birthing in June 2022 and it was such an enlightening experience covering everything in and around childbirth, evidence based and informative, to trauma informed and holistic care including natural techniques in pain management and remedies. I also trained as a KG hypnobirthing teacher, with Katherine Graves in November 2022, and that has given me a phenomenally inspiring and useful facet to my doula support.
As your doula, I will have a listening ear, offer practical and emotional support, discuss options for your baby’s birth and assist in writing a birth plan, as well as making sure that your wishes are being listened and adhered to throughout. In my role as a post doula I can also cook nutritious, predominantly vegan and vegetarian, nourishing and hearty meals. I will be a calming and positive element with some laughter too!
I’m committed to hold space for you, and help you trust your body. I’m an advocate for breastfeeding and can help you but should you choose not to I can assist with finding the best option as well.
I am absolutely passionate about women having empowered births to get the birth they want and nurturing self trust and confidence. I will commit to support you on your journey regardless of how you choose to birth.
I’m standing by and ready to be alongside you for the incredible journey!
