Hello and thank you for visiting my page.
My name is Marta and I am originally from Portugal. I have been living in the UK since 2013.
I have various passions in life alongside helping people in my role as a Doula . I love travelling and exploring new cultures and exploring the underwater world. I am a qualified scuba diver, I enjoy going for rides on my motorbike, photography, roller skating, doing some DIY and crafts. I enjoy learning and have a desire for knowledge. I am a confident person, who is easy-going, friendly and loves to help people.
I have worked in the caring industry for over a decade fulfilling various roles from healthcare practitioner to acting as a branch manager, both in Portugal and in the UK, which has given me the necessary experience to help you navigate the options available within our health system. I am a natural advocate and feel enthusiastic about empowering people to follow their own paths regardless of religion, ethnicity or gender identification.
I am passionate about the physiological and psychological process of conception, pregnancy, labour, birth, early parenthood and child development. I also have a keen interest in breastfeeding, food introduction and infant sleep.
My aim is to support you, independent of your beliefs or background through your unique journey. As your doula I will help you by listening to your hopes, fears, expectations and desires without judgment by creating a safe space where you can share anything that is important to you, I will help you gain the knowledge and empower you to make the decisions that feel right to you to ensure your experience is as positive as it can be.
By having me as your doula, you can have as much or as little support as you may feel necessary. I can help you through pre-conception, pregnancy, and early stages of parenthood.
Postnatally I can help you to settle into your new reality, I can help you and those around you with many aspects of being a new parent or a parent again. I am happy to help with guidance around any questions you may have or to just sit and listen to you. I can offer help with more day-to-day life, from looking after your baby if you need a rest or have things you need to do, accompany you to appointments, do some light shopping, cook a meal, whatever you feel you need a helping hand with.
I am currently being mentored into this rewarding experience of supporting and nurturing parents to be and guide you through the journey of parenthood and my fees reflect this.
If you have any questions, whatever they are please dont hesitate, contact me! Will be great to hear from you.
