First of all congratulations on your pregnancy!
My name is Emily, I am mum to 2 children, I live in Middlewich with my Husband, my kids, and various non rent paying four legged creatures. My background is in Midwifery having worked in two very busy NHS trusts and having delivered over 100 babies I’ve seen it all.
After a 10 year career break I decided to do my return to midwifery practice course which gave me the opportunity to refresh my skills and see first hand what it means to be a midwife in 2021. However I soon learned that Midwifery in the current NHS was not for me.
I believe that by being a Doula I can use my experience and skills I’ve gained over the years to offer expectant parents and their families the best support available to them during this special time. Working alongside a Doula I believe will enhance the pregnancy journey for you as you enter parenthood. Whether you’re expecting for the first time or need some support for subsequent pregnancies hiring a Doula will provide you with all the time, support and information and practical help you could need to empower you and your family through your journey to parenthood. As a Doula I will never tell you what to do, make demands from you or go against your wishes.
Birth can be very medicalised and I believe that by providing women with knowledge and arming them with the right information the outcome of any positive birth choice is more likely to be achieved. After all knowledge is power.
With my experience I can answer any questions you may have and offer information on any of the following;
High risk pregnancies
Previous traumatic births
Multiple or twin pregnancies
Breast / Chest feeding
The Postnatal period
I am also of course available for practical help with the new-born, I can cook, clean and tidy for you, or help look after the baby while you take a much needed rest, help you with your chosen feeding method and allay any fears worries or niggles you may have about you or your baby.
Good luck with your pregnancy. I can’t wait to meet you.
