In my role as a Doula I will provide you with continuous support for your whole family through pregnancy birth and the early days of your parenthood. Providing a service that new mothers and families have always needed. I will listen and develop your confidence in a totally supportive way. I will offer flexible, practical and emotional support from my rooms, hospital setting or your home.
I have experience of mothering my two now grown up children and also many nieces, nephews and God Children. I completed my training with Nurturing Births and have served my mentored period with Doula UK and am now a Recognised Ante Natal and Birth Doula and just finalising my Postnatal Doula mentorship with them. I will not offer clinical skills or advice as I am not medically trained.
I will be directly employed by you and my fees will be agreed prior to you choosing to take on my services and signing a contract.
I will work with you as an expectant first time parent or current parent to provide the type of help that you require to enable you to prepare for your healthy pregnancy and birth and/or to enable you to focus on mothering your new baby.
Whilst I am not there to change the outcome there is growing evidence that having a birth or postnatal doula brings a number of tangible benefits. From reducing intervention rates, shortening labour and improving the condition of babies at birth. However more important is the less tangible benefits of having a supportive companion during this most important of events that will be remembered for life.
