Lives in: Chester CH2
Local info and availability:
I live in a small village near Cheshire Oaks and am available to cover areas of Chester, Ellesmere Port, Wirral, Frodsham and Helsby, but am willing to travel up to 45 minutes from my home. Online support can also be arranged if this is preferable
I am currently offering Postnatal services and we can work out what this means for your family.
Welcome new parents, I’m so glad you’re here!
Whether you are here filled with anticipation, excitement, nerves or total apprehension about the journey ahead of you, I hope you find the Doula who is right for you.
Recently going through the new parenthood journey myself, 2020 restricted a lot of the support I assumed I would have throughout the transition. This made many elements of new motherhood incredibly overwhelming, tiring and isolating. But this is not a unique experience.
Becoming a new parent, particularly as a birthing parent, can be overwhelming regardless of support network. Our society, as it currently functions, seems to have forgotten the importance and value in taking care of new families throughout the fourth trimester (and beyond!) and families have become accustomed to not having the support they deserve and need in this special time.
My intention is to support you to be the parent you want to be. Whether that means practical help, reassurance, holding space for you to voice your worries/successes or giving you time to rest and recover from birth or sleepless nights. You can’t pour from an empty cup, so let’s keep yours topped up. We can work out together what this might mean for you and your family.
I am passionate, not only about pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding, but also about perinatal health and mental wellbeing, child development, and nutrition. Having completed my Masters degree in Family and Child Psychology and beginning to work with our Specialist Perinatal Mental Health Team, I have been able to combine my education, interests, passions and experience by becoming a doula, to support families in the best ways I know how.
I am available to cover Chester, Frodsham, Ellesmere Port and Wirral but will travel further if the fit is right, so please don’t hesitate to contact me.
