My services





Hi my name is Mishel and I currently live in Chesterfield and I love it here.  It’s quiet and the people are super friendly.  I’m a Mother of 4 (the eldest 35 and youngest 9 years old) and a Grandmother to 6 Grandchildren!  I’m a hands-on Grandmother and have supported my daughters with their Mothering journeys.

When I’ve looked back over the years, I realised that I’ve been doulaing, helping and supporting Women/Birthing People.  Being a Doula is my vocation I love it! I’m very passionate about helping Women/Birthing People and their families navigate their Fourth Trimester.

I have a calm and relaxing demeanour (well that’s what people say ☺️), a non judgemental approach in all facets of my life, and you’ll always be greeted with a smile and handled with love. I will encourage and support you to become the parent that you have envisaged. I’m not a “teller” (tell you to do this or do that), with me, you will always be in a safe space to explore options and choose what is best for you and your family.

My purpose is to provide transitional support to you and your growing family. I know how overwhelming and confusing those first few days, weeks or months can be…

Listed below are some of the support/tasks that can be utilised to meet the needs of your family:

  • Postnatal Planning
  • Supporting you to protect your space in order for you and your family to bond with the baby
  • Infant feeding support and encouragement
  • Light housework and upkeep
  • Accompanying you to appointments
  • Practical newborn baby care
  • Being a listening ear, providing emotional and informational support
  • Prepare snacks, light lunches, etc
  • Cuddle/Watch over the baby whilst you take a nap, a shower or bath
  • Entertaining other children/siblings
  • Signposting to other services if and when you feel it is necessary

My offerings are bespoke packages designed to help you navigate your postnatal period, by nurturing and encouraging you to become confident in your abilities as a new parent.

The above services can be delivered in your home or if you choose, we can use various remote or online communication platforms such as Zoom, Teams, WhatsApp, etc to ensure that you have the right amount of support that you need.

Having someone there to just hold space for you, so that you can rest, breathe or bounce ideas or your thoughts off is priceless.

Please get in touch so that we can have a quick chat about what services and support you require…
