My name is Sian and I am a mentored birth Doula based in north Herts. I live in Hitchin and cover the Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire areas. I also offer birth photography and have a birth pool available to hire.
As your Doula I will get to know you and your birth partner, if you have one, to find out what your hopes and expectations are. You will benefit from my continuous emotional, physical and practical support during pregnancy, labour, birth and the early days of parenthood. You will be supported with your choices about birth and be able to draw on my knowledge and experience, providing you with suggestions and information to help you make informed decisions. My aims are for you to feel relaxed, to provide you with comfort, to protect your birth space, and support your birth wishes and parenting choices. My services will be individually tailored to meet your needs so that you are able to birth your baby however you feel is best for you.
I am a Developing Doulas graduate, having trained in April 2019 with the wonderful Maddie McMahon. I have also completed the Aromatherapy for Childbirth study day with aromatherapist Lindsay Woodman and NHS midwife Ruth Davis, attended the Motherwarming workshop with Nicola Goodall to learn more traditional postnatal techniques for nurturing new mothers, and trained in the 3-Step Rewind Technique with Ellie Cook and Hypnosis for Birth with Tracy Sealey. I have a thirst for knowledge and a passion for supporting people, and have no doubts that this list will continue to grow as I continue to learn new skills to benefit you.
Pregnancy and childbirth is such an intimate and special time, so it is important that you find the right Doula to support you. There is a Doula out there for everyone, so I invite you to get in touch so that we can arrange a chat to begin with and take things from there.
