Local info and availability:
Hello my name is Sally. How exciting that you are needing to hire a Doula.
I have 3 children, the first was born in my late 20’s and the last in my late 30’s. Two were born in hospital and the last at home. I have a boy and 2 girls, the youngest who is a about to go off to university. This now gives me the opportunity to devote my time to supporting and caring for new Parents before, during and after birth. I found the experience of pregnancy and childbirth an extremely positive and magical time. I have devoted my life to raising my beautiful children. Fundamentally, I gave them buckets of unconditional l love which has paid off as they have become secure and well adjusted human beings. I feel extremely proud of who they have become. I feel these experiences give me the knowledge to support you through this precious and magical time both practically and mentally.
I would love to get to know you before the birth and discuss what your wishes and expectations are. My aim is to alleviate any fears or worries as well as answer any questions so that when the day comes, having got to know you, I will be there with you throughout supporting you and your partner. I want to make sure you and your needs are fulfilled and you feel supported and listened to. I am flexible and will help you to adapt to any situation as circumstances dictate.
As a postnatal doula, I will be available to help with whatever is necessary to support feeding your precious little bundle and maximise the bonding process. I can turn my hand to most things from chatting, making the tea to walking the dog and lots inbetween.
I look forward to meeting you.
“I’m so glad we had a doula, and feel so lucky it was Sally. Sally was introduced to us by our initial doula, however upon meeting with her we felt as we had known her the whole time. She was warm, friendly and so enthusiastic about us as a couple and our upcoming journey.
Sally was with us at the hospital in no time at all, and I cant imagine our birth without her. Having her there made things so much smoother, and gave us the opportunity to really embrace the experience. This was our first baby, and for me as a first time mum I had so many anxieties about the birthing process, however It was wonderful, and I owe that to Sally.
Thanks to Sally me and my husband were able to focus on the birth of our son together whilst Sally did all of the thinking, from something so simple as the lighting in the room, to reminding us of massage techniques and more importantly being an extra hand to hold and support not only me, but my husband aswell.
Sally was simply amazing, and we cant thank her enough for all she did.”

”Sally supported one of my clients who is a potential victim of human trafficking before during and after the birth of her child. Sally showed extreme sensitivity during this process and built up a good rapport with the client in order for her to feel comfortable with her presence and support during the birth. My client cannot speak any English and Sally was very aware of ensuring that communication was understandable through use of pictorial and translation services.She reassured the client by answering any questions that she had and was very mindful of the client’s cultural needs. During the difficult process of the client’s induction, which ended in a C section, Sally was on hand to answer any questions the client had and was easy to talk to. I have spoken to my client for feedback and she states the following,
Sally was very caring and helpful during the delivery process. I received all the help I needed from her and she was really nice. I would highly recommend her to other people. Thank you very much for being with me during this time.“
