Hi! My name is Letizia , i’m a mentored doula based in Cornwall;mother of 2year old child and sister of four! I know how life looks like with children running around the house and that’s why I love support women and families during and after their transition into parenthood- especially during their postpartum phase.
I worked as a health care assistant in Europe; supporting individuals and families with physical and psychological disabilities, mental health issues and abused women therefore i’m trauma informed .
I’am passionate about supporting physiological home/hospital birth (and C-section hospital birth too)and helping families to cope with antenatal and postnatal appointments if necessary.
During the postpartum i can support the healing journey with the care,the presence and respect families deserve.
I can support giving and preparing nutritional healthly meals/snacks for aid your body to heal after giving birth and I can provide belly binding service;moreover helping you with house work and shopping.I am ready to be at your side during your motherhood journey with all of me and support you in your birth’s choice and postpartum plan whatever they are. I firmly bealive that pregnancy is sacred and must be honored and respected from the beginning until the fourth trimester. I have a holistic and person-centred view. I consider a strong connection between mind, spirit and body and the ability to be ourselves architects of the birth of our children and our healing journey by claiming back our power as ability to give birth physiologically and our awareness as a women and mammal without fear. I truly trust the women i serve and their capability of give birth and know by understanding what is best for their self. Since I was a teenager I have looked after mothers and new born and young children; having grown up in a large family with cousins and little sisters the support was much needed so I would be more than honored to be of help and by your side in this delicate and important moment of transition of your life. If you want to know more about my services,please get in touch!
P.SI love animals especially dogs and cats in fact I have a boxer who is growing up in tune with my daughter Mya and I don’t mind if there is the need to take them for a walk(If you have any) because I love them!
A BIT ABOUT ME:
I live in South West Cornwall and the proximity and connection with nature and ocean that Cornwall offers in all respects is in complete harmony with my holistic and genuine view of life and my lifestyle.
I’m a mother of a beautiful baby girl born in Febrauary 2022 via C-Section.
Although this experience-was beautiful because it gave me the opportunity to become a mother for the first time-It was a differen from what I ecxpeted and planned in my mind but it gave me the strengh and the power to be reborn and understand the pain of 1000 of mothers who go trough this experience of numbness,pain,loneliness and long hospitalization and recovery.
This experience gave me the knowledge and awarness of wanting to become a doula to advocate and support women in and outside the delivery room when they do not have enough information to help them freely choose what is safe,positive and best for them.
WHAT I CAN OFFER YOU AS YOUR DOULA:
What I can offer is an attention of care and support, evidence based-information and centered support on the mother to be. For the birth I will be still, shoulder and firm hand to hold on to and i will advocate for you. I will be there by your side and I will be able to support you in any choice you want to face with evidence based information ,presence care, attention and physical and emotional support. I will help you, listen you and guide you from the beginning of your pregnancy until the end by helping you and your patner better understand and prepare you for the moment of birth with useful information, books from my library and by planning your birth and postpartum plan together so that you can meet your wishes and expectations and helps you recover at best.
During the period after the birth, I can offer you meal preparation and help you in your recovery journey after giving birth by supporting you in your daily activities – in the first month after childbirth – helping you from cleaning the house to shopping to rest and shower if needed, listening to you and giving you time to build a relationship with your child. I will support you during your breastfeeding journey and helps you if requested. I offer belly binding as care to aid and promote your physical and mental well-being by support your back and helping your internal organs and hips to get back in place after giving birth.
I participate in online training seminars and volunteer as breastfeeding peer supporter.
In my adolescence I volunteered in South America in 2009-2010 where I assisted mothers, children and the elderly by providing them with food, medicines and assistance during their daily lives in Peru`.
