UPDATE MARCH 2020 I am still providing Doula services during the Coronavirus epidemic by offering virtual antenatal preparation classes and can provide remote support for those needing Birth support. Please do get in touch with me to discuss your options.
I live in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire with my husband Luke and 3 wonderful children aged 24, 22 and 16.
Having had 3 different births with varying levels of support through out them all I had a calling to want to help to provide a positive birth experience for women.
I am from a large family and have 11 nieces and nephews all of who I have been actively involved with since birth.
I am a compassionate and caring person and have spent 12 years as a Massage therapist in Palliative care at the Hospice of St Francis. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors walking my dog, gardening, keeping active, reading and cooking for friends and family.
I am embracing life as a Doula and I am available to support you as a Birth and /or Post Natal Doula.
I think Lucy is a gift to any new mum – she was like a fairy godmother to us and just made that first month at home far far more enjoyable to me. Can’t recommend her highly enough!

Lucy was an amazing postnatal Doula and made me feel very comfortable and offered emotional and practical support. She was always welcoming and warm which is what I like in a person.
Lucy was extremely intuative, She is so friendly, good humoured and emotionally intelligent. I am so lucky to have found such a good Doula and was sad when I no longer needed her.
Harriet & Christian, Chorleywood
As first time parents we count ourselves lucky to have had such a wonderful birth doula as Lucy. She is a very warm and caring person by nature. Despite this gentleness there is nothing she could not handle to provide the birth we hope for. Having a doula was the best investment by far.
