Hello, I am Jayde Fotiadis , mother to four beautiful children , wife, daughter, friend and yoga teacher.
Thank you for taking the time to read a little more about me!
I have been teaching yoga for a few years now the journey in to teaching began 21 years ago though whilst working in the beauty industry, whilst being a wonderful industry to work in I soon got burnt out and yoga was there to save me, just has it has done many times over in my life. I believe all yoga is a therapy (whatever your need or ability).
My ever changing yoga practise has seen me through anxiety, divorce , stress and pregnancy. It is my lifeline & I want to share this magic with you.
Be it throughout pregnancy or to carry through from day to day.
As your Doula, I will be there to hold space for you. I will be there to hold your hand guide your through your breathing and offer you and your partner support when you need it. I will fade into the background never overshadowing the role of your chosen birth partner. I will be there to guide them , nudge them of how they can support you, serving you both however I can. I am not there as a medical professional, and do not take on a clinical role or give you medical advice but I can support you to make your own informed choice and be your voice to pass on your wishes. There are many different ways I can support you as a Doula, This could be simply by being Antenatal support, helping you with your birth plan, what to pack in your bag, attending appointments with you, Yoga sessions & Breath work with Hypnobirthing Yoga or to Full Birth on call doula with Postnatal support for the 4th trimester.
My role as your Birth Doula is to learn about you (and your family/partner) and the type of birth experience you hope for. I will listen and learn about you (and your partner), your hopes (and fears) and from there we will work together as a team. As your Doula I will get to know you and your birth partner, if you have one, to find out what your hopes and expectations are and support you where you feel it is needed.
My goals as a Doula are to ensure you feel safe and relaxed, to provide you with comfort and coping methods, to protect your birth space, to support you and your birth plan, and to provide support during your communications with the medical staff at your chosen birth place. You will be supported with your choices about birth and be able to draw on my knowledge and experience, providing you with suggestions and information to help you make informed decisions. You will also receive one private 1:1 Pregnancy yoga session-Bliss!
By the time your baby is on it’s way I hope you will think of me as a comforting presence and knowledgeable friend that only has *your* best interests at heart and at the forefront of my mind. My services will be individually tailored to meet your needs so that you are able to birth your baby however you feel is best for you. My fees are lower than other Doulas as I am a mentored doula working towards recognition with Doula UK. This means that you will benefit from having the wisdom and support of another, more experienced Doula behind me. Please contact me directly for more information. Initial Consultation is complimentary.
I find its always good to talk and get a feel of who’s behind the screen.
