I am passionate about supporting families through the transition of pregnancy, birth and the new shape of family. It is truly an honour to be a part of your journey and being able to be present for you is an incredible privilege, helping to guide you through this rollercoaster ride is what drives me to do what I do.
Whether you’re looking for a bit of antenatal education, a full course, a birth doula or some postpartum support, then I’d love to hear from you so we can chat more about some of my favourite things 🙂 I am able to offer most of these services online, using video calling and tools like WhatsApp, so in the current climate you need not leave the comfort of your sofa (or your PJs!). For birth support it’s a bit more tricky at the moment for hospital births, but we can absolutely work with whatever situation is thrown at us, so that you have the support that you deserve in these unusual times. A doula is an integral part of your team, so do pop me a message to ask away and find out how I can tailor a package to support you and your needs, whatever they are.
So a little more about me – my journey to becoming a Doula has been a personal one. After giving birth to my second child, I realised that there was a huge hole where postnatal care *should* have been. I started to reflect a lot on my experiences and that of my peer group and developed a thirst to start doing something positive to help fill this void and started reading up about other cultures pregnancy, birth and postpartum rituals and ceremonies
This reading brought me back to considering becoming a Doula, something which had crossed my mind years ago. I figured that this was now a calling, and so I started to pretty much eat, sleep and breathe birth, mum and baby stuff!
I am also a qualified Medical Herbalist; I always say to people that absolutely is not a pre-requisite to working with me! If you’d like to incorporate herbs into your journey then I am more than happy to – but it’s your choice – you are in control.
I also have completed training for Aromatherapy use in Childbirth – again, this is a nice thing to have if you wish.
I’ve most recently trained in Hypnobirthing, something which I love after using it myself (and still using the tools now in my day to day life!) I offer 1:1 private sessions with clients so that you can get the most from the tools and techniques we will explore together.
I really look forward to hearing from you and working with you in this incredible journey
