Hi, I am Maelle, an antenatal and postnatal doula, living in Fulham, London with my family. I offer antenatal and postnatal services in your home in London or online if you live outside London.
Before birth, I will give you emotional and informational support during pregnancy and the time leading up to the birth. This support is perfect for mums and families who do not want a doula at the birth but would benefit from a knowledgeable, non-judgmental and supportive friend who they can rely on. And not forgetting about what happens after birth, I will explore with you the practicalities of postpartum support and help you reflect on a new daily organisation after birth.
After birth, I will encourage and support you in resting as much as possible to recover, recharge and bond with your baby. I will also help you navigate the emotional rollercoaster of the postnatal period, assist you in defining what works best for you, raise your confidence in your parenting skills and provide some practical support.
I became passionate about helping mothers and families when I realised how little emotional and guiding support was available for new parents-to-be through their pregnancy journey, birth and postnatal period. I believe in helping women feel empowered with all the information they need to make informed choices about birth and parenting.
Your birth and parental experiences matter to me. I would be more than happy to nurture you, be that experienced and friendly go-to person that will take good care of you in this transition period, share knowledge and experience in a meaningful way, answer your many questions, help you settle in your new life and support you through all ups and downs that this new experience brings.
I was lucky to train as a doula with Kicki Hansard, a very inspiring award-winning author and the founder of Birthbliss Academy. I have since continuously been learning to stay on top of the latest information and completed training in understanding newborns’ development, holistic sleep coaching, supporting twins and multiples, understanding and preventing reflux, postnatal planning, and helping with birth trauma, phobia and fear through the 3-step rewind NLP-based method.
I follow the philosophy and professional code of conduct of Doula UK. I am Enhanced-DBS certified and have a paediatric first aid training.
