Lives in: Grantham NG31
Local info and availability:
I cover Nottingham, Grantham, Lincolnshire, Rutland, Boston and Notts.
I offer one to one birth preparation classes. Postnatally I offer Closing the Bones and breastfeeding advice.
I am a married mother of two daughters. I had a lovely second birth but an awful first experience. I breastfed both my daughters for a year and being a doula is a lovely way to fulfil my desire to help mothers and their newborn babies have the best experience of such a precious time.
I believe that women have the right to the most relaxing and calm birth expereince possible which helps them to have the most joyous birth they can. This allows them to confidently focus on nurturing their new babies. I am a passionate supporter of breastfeeding. A good early start we have now learned, aids good physical and mental health in mothers and babies for life.
I have a degree in media and English and I have 8 years experience as a children’s nanny, often of newborns. I have a beginners qualification in counselling and I am a qualified birth and postnatal doula.
I have worked as a postnatal doula with so many extraordinary women, one of whom was quite disabled. It was wonderful to see her blossom into the most lovely mother. I am a fierce defender of women’s rights and I am supporting #marchwithmidwives.
