Hello and thank you for viewing my profile!
My name is Harriet and I am a mum to a wonderful son born in 2017, living on the Cambridgeshire & Suffolk border with my husband and small dog.
My goal as a doula is to give you and your family the support and knowledge you need to make informed decisions about your pregnancy, birth and precious early days.
Like many other women, I found the whole pregnancy journey fascinating yet mind-boggling, leading me to do lots of research and educate myself around the complex subject that is birth and motherhood.
Women are incredible!
Birthing and raising the next generation is hard enough but sometimes it can feel like we are just expected to “get on with it” when really we deserve nothing but love, care and nurturing at such an incredibly changeable time.
I hope to be able to ease your transition into motherhood, with positivity and gentle, loving care, mothering the mother in those precious early days. I can be there to value your thoughts and emotions, to listen over a cup of tea, as well as talk through any challenges and concerns you may have. My support doesn’t just stop with the birthing person but extends to the whole family, especially birth partners, who can often feel lost at such a vulnerable time.
I have worked in close proximity with families from all walks of life for the past 12 years as a nanny, and more recently as a maternity nurse. Since completing my doula course, I have supported home births as well as consultant-led births in hospitals as well as all the different experiences in between! I have supported families in early pregnancy right through to birth, through loss, and with children up to secondary school age.
