My services





Throughout my years working for both the NHS and charity sectors, I've had the privilege of supporting countless families. This experience has undoubtedly prepared me for my role as a birth doula, where I've assisted with a variety of birth types, from water births to caesarean sections. Each family I've worked with has taught me that no two birth experiences or family dynamics are the same. As your doula, I strive to provide personalised care and attention to each individual member of your family. I am here to assist you in navigating the overwhelming amount of information available, offering evidence-based knowledge and a listening ear when you need it most. My antenatal sessions as your birth doula focus on preparing you practically, physically and emotionally. Topics include: -Exploring the role of a doula -Creating a birth plan and discussing birth preferences - Comfort measures and management techniques during labour -Positioning and movement during labour and birth - Advocating for the birthing person's wishes and needs -Creating a calming and supportive birth environment -Supporting partners and other support persons during labour -Assisting with relaxation techniques and breathing exercises -Massage and touch techniques for pain relief - How I provide support during the postpartum period -Breastfeeding support and guidance -Newborn care and soothing techniques -Emotional and physical recovery after birth -Bonding and attachment between parents and baby -Preparing for and navigating the early weeks and months of parenthood. With my expertise as a Lactation Consultant you can feel confident that you will receive specialised care to reach your feeding goals. All of the families I support have access to my birth kit, including birth pool, TENs machine and much more. If you would like to know more about my packages and find out if we might be a good fit, please contact me to book a free birth chat.
