Hi, I’m Jemma and before you go any further I’d like to tell you a bit more about why I am so passionate about helping mothers to experience a positive birth and why supporting them through pregnancy and the postnatal period is what I adore doing. I originally retrained after having my first child because I struggled to find someone ‘like me’, that could support my pregnancy journey. My background is in PR and I’m a fan of logical thinking, this is how I support my mums with a hug on the side.
I am devoted to proving that practicing hypnobirthing, having a doula and knowing what you want from your birth does not make you a ‘hippy dippy’ or demanding but actually an educated and knowledgeable woman.
After supporting 100’s of couples with hypnobirthing and antenatal education I was inspired to become a doula to take my support one step further and as so many of my hypnobirthing couples asked me if I could attend the birth of their baby, and I wanted to be able to say YES!
I’m happy supporting all kinds of births – and have experience in all settings, including hombirths, birth centre, labour ward and theatre (casearan). Whether you are high risk, low risk, planning a vaginal birth, vbac, caesarean. My goal is for you to have a positive birth experience as you define it.
As a birth doula I offer continuity of support through your pregnancy, labour and 4th trimester. I have vast experience working with NHS & private hospitals throughout London & Surrey including The Portland, Lindo Wing & Kensington Wing. Kingston, Chelsea, West Mid, St Marys & St Georges.
I’ve supported women from all walks of life including celebrities and journalists and have recently been featured and recommend by the Evening Standard and many other media outlets.
On a personal note I am a mum of three myself, I love watching old movies, walking my dog in Richmond park and I’m a huge fan of baking and eating cake!
I love to chat, so drop me an email to find out more.
