Breastfeeding Peer Support
As a doula it brings me so much joy to support clients through their pregnancy, birth and postnatal experience. The journey to parenthood or welcoming a new addition to the family is one that takes a village.
My role as a doula is to be by your side throughout your pregnancy, birth and postnatal journey, providing continuity of care alongside practical and emotional support.
I am a mother of two wonderful daughters. My first pregnancy was straightforward and I felt safe and well supported throughout. This led to a really positive and fulfilling birth experience. Afterwards, I felt isolated and struggled with postnatal depression after her birth. This exposed me to the power and value of a strong support network and continuity of care throughout pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period.
During my second pregnancy, I sought to build a more supportive environment around myself which completely changed my birth and postnatal journey – this is something I want to share with others.
Helping women and birthing people advocate for their own choices is extremely powerful. I believe that birth education is the key foundation for understanding your options and how to work with your own body for all birth outcomes.
I have supported births at home, in birth centres, on labour wards alongside inductions and caesarean sections. All types of birth can benefit from the support of a doula. This is because evidence shows it equals a more positive outcome in birth and beyond for both the parent/s and baby.
Stepping into the fourth trimester is a period of huge change – healing, rest, sleep, feeding and emotional needs are all at the forefront alongside caring for a new baby and all the challenges this can often present. Having someone to support you during this period both emotionally and practically through postnatal care can ease this transition.
