There are lots of reasons you might be looking for a doula…
Whether you are pregnant or have had the baby, whether this is your first baby or a subsequent child, if your kids are a bit older now and you feel all at sea, or even if you are planning to conceive or have decided you no longer want to be pregnant – I am a doula who will support you without judgement through the full spectrum of your fertile life. This kind of psychosocial support has been proven to enhance parents’ experience of childbearing.
As an intersectional feminist I put your choice and control over your own body slap bang at the centre of everything I say and do. Becoming a parent can be scary and overwhelming, physically exhausting and emotionally challenging on many levels. But it can also be joyful, empowering and a wild adventure filled with more love than you ever imagined possible. My job is to support you to gather enough information to make choices that feel right for you along the way, to provide a shoulder to lean on when times are tough, an ear to listen and be a sounding board as you make decisions and a practical help as you keep all these new plates spinning.
I work mainly as a birth doula, providing antenatal and birth support; ensuring you feel adequately prepared for birth and early parenthood. I also specialise in feeding support, providing evidence based information and skilled techniques to help you feed your baby comfortably. You can read more about what I offer on my services page.
I often work with other doulas to ensure you never have to worry about a doula being unavailable to you and because our experience provide you with more skills and choice
