Could you do with a doula?!

If you would like support at the birth of your baby or in the postnatal period then I would love to be your doula!

A Doula is a professional support provider who trusts and understands the physiological process of childbirth. They provide provide practical, emotional and informational support without judgement and can make a huge difference to how you experience birth.

when a doula is present,
a pregnant woman is…

  • More likely to have spontaneous vaginal delivery
  • More likely to have a shorter labour
  • More likely to be successful with breastfeeding
  • Less likely to give birth with forceps or vacuum extraction
  • Less likely to need any an emergency caesarean
  • Less likely to develop Postnatal Depression.
  • More likely to experience BETTER OUTCOMES OVERALL

For most women, physiological birth is entirely possible if they have the right support but every woman will birth in a way that is right for her. I am happy to support you wherever and however you decide to give birth. As your doula, I’ll provide emotional support, offer physical comfort measures and share information to help you make informed decisions. I promise to be a kind and calming presence, to listen hold and space for you and to help you connect with your birthing power!

I also give excellent hugs, am a dab hand in the kitchen and am always up for a natter so if you’re looking for someone to look after you as you transition into the fourth trimester then I would love to be that person.

I want you to feel proud of yourself whatever path your birth may take. Women are incredible! We may only be one half of the world but we gave birth to the whole world!

I really believe that giving birth is the most amazing thing that a woman can do and I am committed to helping you make this happen.

I am based in a little village called South Nutfield in Surrey and whilst I am happy to travel anywhere to look after you but please bear my location in mind and consider how long it may take me to reach you!

Postnatal doula

Finding our way through the fourth trimester can feel very daunting but I will help you navigate the journey. As your postnatal doula I will provide a nurturing and supportive home environment so that you can relax and get to know your new baby.

I will use my knowledge and experience to help you discover a way of doing things that feels right for you and look to empower you in your new role.

My work as a postnatal doula is very flexible. Previous clients have benfitted from the following services:

  • Routine newborn care
    Home cooked nutritious (and sometimes naughty!) meals for you and your family
  • Running errands
  • Light housework and cleaning duties
  • Accompanying mother and baby to appointments or on shopping trips
  • Taking care of older siblings including school drop off or pick up.

Night doula

Sometimes all you just need a decent nights sleep! Parenting doesn’t end in the night hours and sleep deprivation can be truly horrendous. As your Night Doula I will come to your home and stay the night. Depending on your feeding preference, I can either bring your baby to you to feed or give a bottle -whatever works for you. I will then change, wind, and settle your baby so that you are disturbed as little as possible.

A night doula can really help you to recover more effectively-particularly if you’ve had a caesarean birth. When you are properly rested, it’s far easier to parent let me look after things so that you can sleep with peace of mind knowing that everything is taken care of.
