** COVID-19 UPDATE (March 19th 2020): I am continuing to offer my doula services at this time, whilst being mindful of my own health and public health. I am offering virtual online services to provide you support during pregnancy and the early days of parenthood. For local families I am offering support in the way of collecting and delivering shopping and providing in person support where it is safe to do so.
If your birth partner is required to self isolate I am offering to be your birth partner on a donation basis to support you at this unusual and unpredictable time. **
Hi, I am Eva 🙂
I have found joy in working with parents during their pregnancy, birth and postnatal journeys for over nine years now. With a background in midwifery and a passion for human rights in childbirth, I am excited to be offering doula care to families in and around West Sussex.
In January 2020 I completed the Conscious Birthing doula training course, which included TIDE (trauma informed doula education). I have a particular interest in offering trauma informed doula support, which is why I chose this course.
I offer emotional and practical support to parents through pregnancy, birth and early parenthood. This includes families who are growing their family through surrogacy or adoption. I love to work with all families and I have a particular interest in supporting LGBTQ parents, one parent families and those who have experience of trauma.
I work with you and your family to ensure you feel prepared and supported in what can be a joyful, momentous and overwhelming journey. I draw on my experience and resources whilst we build a trusting relationship together. I can offer support, information and guidance to assist you in making the choices that feel best for you and your family. I am walking alongside you with no judgement of the choices and decisions you make – you and your wishes are at the centre of how we work together.
My birth package includes:
- Two to four visits during your pregnancy
- Being on call for your labour (on call period to be discussed individually and tailored your circumstances)
- Support during your labour and birth and until you’re settled after baby has arrived
- Two postnatal visits (of up two hours each)
- Support via phone and email during our work together
- Access to my extensive library of resources
I want to ensure that you can afford the support you deserve, so my fees are on a sliding scale.
Alongside my doula work I run Little Wrens, my parent and baby group, offering support for new parents in a caring space with simple toys for the babies and a hot drinks, yummy snacks and craft activities for the parents. I attended the Holistic Baby and Child Care course run by Emerson College in 2018, which gave me insight into the importance of the experiences, relationships and attachments we develop in the first few months and years of life. This course led me to run this group. More information: www.evawrenwood.co.uk/parent-baby-group-horsham
I co-facilitate the Horsham Positive Birth Movement with another local doula . This is a free group who meet monthly to support one another and discuss birth and parenting, part of the PBM international network. More information: www.facebook.com/PositiveBirthMovementHorsham
I welcome you to explore my website to find out more about me, what I offer and the benefits of working with a doula and to contact me if you would like to arrange to meet. I offer a free no obligation meet up to explore if I could be the right doula for you.
