Birth (Recognised since February 2011)
Lives in: London SW18
Local info and availability:
I have over 9 years of experience working as a birth doula both privately in South West London and part-time as a birth doula at Chelsea & Westminster hospital. I believe the vast experience I have gained supporting 100's of women, midwives and births both as an NHS doula and as a private doula is of huge benefit to my private clients. I would like to pass this personalised individual service onto you - so do have a look at my website. By the way I am occasionally available for last minute births so do try me.
In making this such a personal service for both you and your partner, I only work in a 3 mile radius of SW18 (Earlsfield) - my website has a map so do have a look. If you live in this area I really do look forward to hearing from you.
My website tells you all about me so do have a peep but in brief:
My aim if you book me for your birth is very simple – by me caring, supporting and empowering you throughout the entire pregnancy and labour, providing you and your partner with both consistency and calmness along this wondrous journey you will have the best birth life can bring you.
At 17 and loving babies with all my heart, I began my training as a Norland Nursery Nurse (working at the John Radcliffe hospital outside Oxford) then went into maternity nursing where I was lucky enough with my qualification and experience to travel the world my second passion in life 😉
At 28 and as a solo mum I went on to have my wonderful son which led me a few years later into the next world of childbirth and doulaing. Which is now my first passion. This passion saw me being one of the first ever doulas employed by the NHS working alongside couples I had never met before and the amazing midwifes at the hospital.
I really hope I will be able to help you and your partner as pregnancy and child birth is a unique and life changing (and hopefully wonderful) experience which should be both a cherished and a happy memory for life.
I wish you a beautiful and happy birth whichever doula you find and remember; the moment a baby is born, the mother is also born.
