Lives in: Ash GU12
Local info and availability:
Postnatal Doula services weekdays, evenings & through the night. I will travel up to an hour by car. My children are grown up and self sufficient, so I am very flexible !
I would be delighted to hear from you for a friendly chat and to discuss how I could support you before and after the birth of your baby or babies. I have now supported many twins families and even Triplets !. I absolutely love being a doula, so rest assured that everything i do comes from the heart and my passion to care for new mothers and babies.
I was born in 1964 in the north of England and moved to the south, for work, when I was 17 years old. I married my Italian husband Enzo when I was 23 and we had the first of 4 children that same year. We have now been married for over 30 years, have 2 sons and 2 daughters and are very lucky to have a wonderful grandson and grandaughter who live near us. Being a Doula has been a passion of mine for over 15 years, so I was very excited at the end of 2014 when the opportunity arose to eventually start my doula journey. I have always been a very nurturing person, passionate about pregnancy and birth and I adore babies. My other loves are dancing, summers on the beach and socialising with friends, but I’m never happier than when I have all of my children back together, for a big family meal.
I have a wealth of personal experience, having had 4 children of my own and I have helped and supported many friends during pregnancy and with their babies. I feel extremely blessed to have experienced my eldest daughter’s transition into motherhood, supporting her throughout her pregnancy, during labour and postnatally.
I am committed to providing continous physical, emotional and practical support, before, during and after childbirth. Helping you to stay Calm, Comfortable and Confident. To be informed and prepared and most importantly to have trust in yourself as a birthing women and a new mother.

“Where do i start ?! it has been such a pleasure to have you as part of our family for the last few months. You have been an enormous help to me, setting me up and giving me the confidence as a new mum of two. You have helped me more than you know. You are like a magician at settling baby and Joseph has absolutely adored your visits.You have been fantastic with him and made him feel so special and lovedas he got used to sharing my attention with his new brother. He will miss you and so will we. Thankyou so much for everything you have done for us, we always say to each other that you have been such a blessing for our family… with much love ” Emily (mother of 2) Haslemere.
“Jeanette – you are one in a million ! Thank you so much for all your help the last couple of months, i couldnt have done it without you. You really do have the patience of a Saint and miraculously have kept me sane dealing with 3 very demanding little people… I will be eternally grateful for your words of wisdom and calm reassurance (and endless supply of treats and little gifts for the children!) The boys absolutely adore you and will miss you terribly… Isabelle too…. ” Jen (mother of 3) Claygate
“Jeanette is a breath of fresh air and a complete joy. Never could i have imagined feeling completely comforatble handing over my infant to someone, who wasnt my husband, to look after during the night. She has a very special gift when it comes to caring for newborns and her love of children couldnt be more clear. She helped me over a few months while i struggled with PND. I have so much to thank Jeanette for it really is difficult to know where to start. But what i will say is that she is a very special lady with a very special gift indeed…. “Jeanette we can not convey just how grateful we are to you for all that you have done for our precious girls. Thankyou for all your love and support and all the joy that you bring..” Tiffany & David (parents to 2 ) Lightwater
“Jeanette is a superstar ! Warm, reassurring, loving, knows everything there is to know about babies, helping me with my second baby, who absolutely adores her. Jeanette was our douls for several monthsgiving me much needed support and guidance. I could leave my baby with Jeanette with complete confidence, knowing she was in safe hands, whilst i spent some time with my firstborn, which i feel helped us enormously in our transition from 1 to 2 children. A complete fairy Godmother ! we absolutely adore her. my only regret is that i wish id found her for my first baby…. ” Melanie B (mummy to 2) Esher
“Jeanette was a breath of fresh air helping us out with 4 month old TRIPLETS. She provided great help and support through a very challenging period of their development. We built a great relationship, the babies loved her.. and we would highly recommend Jeanette ” Charlotte & Lisa (Mummies to triplets) Farnborough
“I would not hesitate to recommend Jeanette to anybody with a new baby. After meeting her, instantly we loved her. the help & support she offers is priceless, i cant thank her enough” Rachel ( mummy to 1) Camberley
“Jeanette was calming and i felt relaxed in her company, she listened to me & talked about my previous birth, helping me to have closure on it and see this birth as a new experience. Jeanette gave me direction in a gentle manner, supporting all my wishes. she calmed my nerves and took away the anxiety, jeanette was very knowledgeable, I started to sleep a lot better after talking with her and felt ready for the birth”… Julia Barker (mummy to 2) Fleet
“Jeanette was an absolute Superstar and helped me at short notice due to illness. She was kind and caring and completely trustworthy. She helped me get back on my feet and looked after me and my baby brilliantly. She gave me loads of tips and techniques to help make things easier for me when i was back on my own. Jeanette was happy to do anything required and i would not hesitate to recommend her or use her again. What a Gem !!! …” Emma P (Mummy to 1) ChurchCrookham
“Thank you so much for helping us get through the first 3 months of having TWINS in our lives. Having a good nights sleep made a world of difference, and being able to look forward to itand know that there was a break on the horizon was worth its weight on gold.It made things easier both physically and mentally… i must admit that i was nervous leaving my tiny babies with anyone during the night but as soon as i met you, you calmed my fears and put me at ease straight away. You were so good that i waas able to sleep soundly knowing that they were in such good hands ” Emma M (mummy to 3) Godalming
“jeanette never stopped for a minute! if the baby was asleep, then she cleaned hoovered and ironed, all on her own initiative- she really was like a fairy Godmother ! she is extreemly thoughtful – she brought me food which she had cooked for her own family in her own home. jeanette is very generous she often stayed beyond the time to help me answer questions and generally support me. She is also very loving both to me and my baby- i am so lucky to have found her ” …. L.M (mummy to 1) Farnham
” after my c-section, jeanette was invaluable in my home, helping with household chores and running errands.she supported me postnatally and we had a lovely relationship. she is very easy going and i felt relaxed in her presence. She gave great advice and both of my sons loved her. Jeanette is absolutely wonderful, she is flexible, helpful, kind and very experienced. i often relied on her experience and wisdom, every week we looked forward to having her in our home”… GS (mummy to 2) Woking
