I am a mother of 2 young children living and working in Chiswick as a birth and postnatal doula.
I believe that a positive birth experience can look very different for each woman and that being supported, listened to and having access to the right information to make your own informed choices about your care are what makes an experience positive.
As your doula I can support you both physically and emotionally throughout pregnancy, labour and the postnatal period. I can support you in working together with your care providers by helping you to find the information you need to make informed choices. I work closely with you throughout to insure that you have continuous support from someone that fully understands your plans and expectations, as well as your fears and concerns.
I work closely with other local doulas and offer a shared care package with Olivia Southey ( https://doula.org.uk/doula/olivia-southey/ )and Tama-Sophie Lambert (https://doula.org.uk/doula/tama-sophie-lambert/ ) . This means having the support of both doulas antenatally and postnatally, with the extra guarantee that you will have someone you know with you on the day. Please ask me for more information about how this works for you!
I facilitate the Positive Birth Movement for Chiswick and Hammersmith ( https://m.facebook.com/groups/1488011174838671) and am the Doula UK Representative for West London.
Please do get in touch if you have any questions or to arrange a chat!
“She was by my side at all hours, with my water bottle, lip balm and a good joke or anecdote, offered ever so sweetly. I don’t know how we would have navigated so many challenges without her.” – D, Islington
“Having Saffron at the birth of our son enabled me to have a positive birth experience even though things certainly didn’t go according to the plan. She enabled me to stand up for myself and assert what I wanted in a way I wouldn’t have without her support.” – L, Ealing
“Could not have coped without the expert advice, warmth & support of Saffron. She was invaluable to me & made me a confident mum in those crucial first few months. Don’t know what I would have done without her. A fantastic doula X I highly recommend” – N, Ealing
” I felt cared for and nurtured throughout. Her advise and expertise to this day is priceless. I couldn’t have done it without her!” – A, Chiswick
