I am a birth and postnatal doula.  I am available to women and their partners before, during and after birth.  Offering information, guidance, new ideas and non judgemental support. 
As a birth doula, we will get to know each other before your baby is born and together we will discuss how I can support you, and work through any concerns you may have.  I will be "on call" for you as your due date approaches, when I will be available to you at any time of the day or night.  I will then stay with you throughout your labour and birth, until your baby has arrived and you are happy and settled.  I will also visit afterwards to chat about your experience.  I am not necessarily a replacement for your partner, unless this is what you want.  In fact I am also there to support a birth partner too.
As a postnatal doula, I support and nurture, helping you with your first few weeks with your new baby.  Offering practical support whether it is looking after your baby whilst you get some extra sleep, or guidance with breastfeeding or bottle feeding.  I can help with caring for older children or with housework, cooking, washing etc but also emotional support to help you deal with any worries or concerns you may have. 
I have experience in many different areas ie: Twins, homebirth, water birth, epidurals, inductions, birth trauma, premature baby.

I am a Doula UK Recognised Birth and Postnatal Doula
I also volunteer as a registered Breastfeeding Network Helper
