Group & Private Hypnobirthing Workshops
Hi! I’m Jade,
I currently working as a Doula & Hypnobirthing Practitioner in London & Cheshire. I am married to Marty and a proud mother of 5 children, ages ranging from 30 to 6 years. I trained with The Birth Bliss Academy London, under the guidance of Kicki Hansard (Doula of the Year 2009 and Award winning Author of The Secrets of Birth).
I have 10 years experience of lovingly supporting families through pregnancy and childbirth, those with newborns and young children, first as a certified NNEB Nanny and a Private Maternity Nanny, in central London. Then as a Registered Childminder and a Home Start Family Support Worker in Hillingdon, London. All of which I found thoroughly rewarding, it taught me many key skills, it is always a privilege to work so closely with families and make a positive difference.
Qualifying as a Breastfeeding Counsellor with the NCT in 1990, my Breastfeeding Support experience spans 28 years, including regularly updating my knowledge and skills with further training during this time. I provided mothers with essential breastfeeding support and evidence based information in NHS and Private London hospitals and within my roles as a Nanny, a Childminder and a Home Start Family Support Worker. In recent years, I offered support at Hillingdon’s local children’s centres and in the community as a Breastfeeding Peer Supporter alongside Health Professionals.
In between these paid & voluntary roles I did a slight detour into all things legal, I trained as a Legal Executive, completed a Law Degree & worked in the City of London for 9 years.
But for all the years in the Legal world of studying, training & working, something was missing. I couldn’t quite put my finger on it. It wasn’t until the first time a friend called me to support her through a complicated labour and birth, that I realised what I actually should be doing with my life; a Doula’s role, mothering the mother, it felt like coming home. My passion and enthusiasm for helping parents to enjoy their pregnancy, have a positive birth experience and inspire confidence in their parenting had been reignited. All women deserve to feel cared for, respected and have their voice heard throughout pregnancy, and birth. I’ve seen first hand the huge difference it makes to their experience and it is what I’ve always cared deeply about.
My focus as your Doula is to give you complete continuity of care from your pregnancy to the postnatal period, Mothering the mother is at the heart of all I do. My commitment to you begins by providing a thorough insight into the whole maternity process. I can help you plan and prepare for the birth of your baby, with Antenatal & Breastfeeding education & an optional Home organisation service. I adapt my services to suit your needs and aim to instill confidence for you to make informed choices. During labour and birth I aim to create a nurturing environment in which I will help and support both you and your partners physical and emotional needs. I want you to feel cared for throughout and have the birth experience that feels right for you and your baby.
I also work with you as your Postnatal specialist, tailored to you and your family’s needs. I provide practical support around your home, so you can concentrate on the joy of getting to know your new baby. I endeavor to provide a non judgmental calm presence in your home, supporting and guiding you to develop your own parenting skills and recognise that only you are your baby’s expert. I am a supportive listener and give you the opportunity to have a ‘debrief’ chat about the birth, talking things through, helping you to process this momentous event in your life.
I work in collaboration with a network of professional support and can refer you to local Tongue Tie Specialists, IBCLC’s & other Health Professionals to suit your needs.
My Doula Service covers both London & Cheshire & I offer a free no obligation consultation. Please feel free to contact me for more information on the areas I cover, my availability and details of all the services I offer. I look forward to hearing from you!
