East London / Essex
Hi I’m Jade!
I live in East London. I trained with Every Birth Matters and enjoyed every moment! I am passionate about all things birth. I believe in empowering women to achieve their best possible birthing experience.
I started my journey on a Midwifery degree. I soon realised the medical role of the Midwife was not a fit for me. My passion is working closely with women and their families to be able to build strong relationships, to provide continuity, support and the knowledge to make informed decisions. My experience working as student midwife has provided me with strong knowledge on the anatomy and physiology of pregnancy and birth. I also gained an insight and understanding of the patient pathway. Having had the privilege to be present at births during my placement, I know that all births are different, and all families are unique. Therefore, I will work with you to understand your personal needs and wishes, so that after the birth of your baby you feel you’ve had the best experience possible.
Utilising my experience and knowledge I offer individualised practical and emotional support throughout pregnancy, birth and the early postnatal period. I share evidence-based information to allow you to feel confident and in control. I will advocate for you and your preferences. I also work with partners to encourage them to feel confident and capable.
The doula role is not to provide medical advice, but I will share information and resources to ensure you feel confident and in control at every step. I am DBS checked and monitored by Doula UK. I am also mentored by an experienced and recognised doula.
Here is a snippet of the services I offer…
Birth doula – I support all births e.g., hospital, home, water birth, VBAC, caesarean birth. I will provide you with antenatal knowledge. I aim for you and your birth partner (if you have one) to feel safe, supported and empowered. You will receive holistic care to meet your physical and emotional needs, as well as practical support before birth, labour and after. I will be a source of advocacy for your birth plan and wishes from a place of non-judgment. I will inform you on how your body changes in pregnancy and labour, the role of hormones, pain relief, informed decision making, the birth plan, induction, positions for labour and so much more to ensure you feel fully prepared and empowered. I will support you in any way you need whether that is through affirmations, visualisation, ensuring you stay hydrated or simply holding your hand.
Postnatal doula – I will be a source of support for your transition into parenthood. I will be there to support you from day one if needed or at any point afterwards. I will support you in any way, including physical tasks, practical knowledge, provide a listening ear, emotional support, light household chores, support with basic baby care and looking after older children so you can bond with your newborn or taking care of baby whilst you shower etc.
*I also offer hypnobirthing classes!*
I live in London IG11 covering East London, Essex and I am happy to travel anywhere with a 1 hour radius. I can also provide support virtually. I would love to hear from you if you want to know more about me and my services. We can have an informal chat about your individual requirements to assess how we would work together and if I am the right doula for you. I will answer all enquires as soon as I can.
