I have two amazing sons, and two amazingly different birth experiences. After supporting my sisters though their births I began to fully appreciate just how much the right support can impact a birth experience, so the year after the birth of one of my nephews I discovered the amazing role of the doula and started the journey in 2013 with nurturing birth. I truly feel that birth is as much of a right of passage for the mother as it is for the baby, as a mother of two I understand first hand the importance of respect, compassion, encouragement and support during and after the birth. As a doula I am dedicated to helping every woman I support feel safe, empowered and in control of her birth no matter where or how she chooses. I respect that every woman,baby and birth is different so take the time to get to know you, work with you and always with your wishes in mind. My aim is simply to help you meet your baby in the most loving way possible and in the way that feels most authentic to you. I am always updating, improving and building on my skills and knowledge by attending regular training days and workshops. Postnatally I am passionate about nurturing and caring for the new mother. I believe that birth is a rite of passage, sacred and precious and should be treated as such. A feeling that can often feel lost, this is why I love to offer simple acts of caring such as massage, good food and lots of listening and understanding. I support you through your ‘baby moon’ and will extend my care past 6 weeks if this is needed.
