I'm an doula and a trained midwife (not practicing in the UK) and I'm currently offering only home-birth services and postnatal services. I'm a kundalini yoga teacher (Planning to start creating antenatal classes soon!) I'm also a photographer with experience in birth photography.
I’m Sara Facchin, a mum of two boys living in Wilmslow. I trained at Mindful Doulas in Scotland in 2011 and I’m a birth doula recognised and a mentored postnatal doula. In 2017 a had a pause because I started my midwifery degree. After qualifying I decided to be an independent/traditional midwife abroad to maintain my skill but decided to continue working as a doula in the UK.
I have a BTEC in health and care theory and practice and I’m a qualified massage therapist I have experience with VBAC, water births, home and hospital births.
I have so many passion, including photography. So if you are thinking for a professional birth photographer… here I’m !
I believe in the capability and strength of a woman’s body to birth her babies. A safe, protected and comfortable birth space and the right support during labour can drastically increase the chances of a positive birth outcome and a satisfactory experience. I believe that a mother who is nurtured through labour, birth and the early postnatal period, feels much more confident to nurture and care for her baby. It improves the bond, helps to establish successful breastfeeding, enhances confidence in parenthood… and beyond!
