More Info
  • I am a mentored birth and postnatal doula. And I absolutely love my job. I offer baby massage.
    I am about to embark on learning the techniques of Rebozo which are so beneficial during pregnancy, labour and after baby is born

  • About Me:

    I am a happily married mother of 5 children ( 29, 26, 13 and twin boys 13) I am also a god-mother to 10. I feel very passionate and honoured about supporting and empowering mothers, fathers and families during pregnancy, labor, and beyond. My journey began not just with my own birth experience but also being invited as a birth partner to several woman over the years, in London, LA and Bali. This sparked my passion for birth and to work closely with mothers and babies, that determined for me that I wanted to pursue this role, subsequently changing the course of my life. I trained as a Doula through Nurturing Birth in London, and am now a Birth and Postnatal Doula and have enjoyed working with new mothers, babies, and families ever since.

    I live in London and cover all areas.

    My Doula Role:

    As a doula, I believe that every woman deserves a positive, protected and smooth journey into motherhood. The precious continuity of care of a doula to help you birth-with-awareness, can make the whole difference. Through the nurturing doula relationship, I am here to help you identify your options, not to tell you what to do. I am here to help you discover your own inner strength to increase your confidence in your ability to birth your baby your way. By mothering the mum and supporting the dad in his crucial role, I offer practical and emotional support tailored to the unique needs and wishes of each couple.
    My postnatal doula role I provide support for both mother and baby including breast feeding support, baby care and I love to cook so am always happy to prepare meals for the family allowing mother more precious time with her baby.
    I believe my desire to nurture and help and my ability to protect and care for others, as well as my knowledge and experience of pregnancy, labor and life with a newborn, both professionally and personally, are a solid attribute and define my nature
    My emphasis is to support and empower women and their families during pregnancy, childbirth and early parenthood. This support is practical and emotional but non-medical.
    I have a flexible approach and listen to the needs and questions of each family.
    My aim is to give encouragement, support, information and empowerment to make the choices that suit your needs. Information is power and and to be informed and knowing your choices will enlighten you on this beautiful journey and also help you to make well informed choices to birth baby your way.

    Testimonials:

    "Fiona is a warm, patient, caring, knowledgeable lady and a good listener. Her calm aura gave me confidence when dealing with regular visits to the hospital for Molly’s check ups."

    "We first met Fiona over 2 years ago as a neighbour and we immediately observed how mature, loving and respectful her own children were. When she told us that she was a caregiver to children as well, we immediately trusted and respected her opinions. When we were expecting our own child last year, Fiona's advice and constant well-wishing gave us so much confidence, and the skills and knowledge she gave us were invaluable. Fiona obviously has a lot of experience raising children, but her advice was so well catered to our own situation, and lacking in judgment about our own situation, and was in truth so helpful to us, that we cannot recommend her highly enough."

    " Fiona is a warm, friendly and very open person. She is easy to relate to and very empathetic. She was very knowledgeable about all things that a new mother is anxious about. She is also a very kind, funny, honest and considerate person. I felt completely at ease talking to her about anything and she always had great information and support. She is absolutely lovely and trustworthy and has great skills in seeing what is required at particular points in time."

    "Fiona is an absolute star. She is there without imposing herself and does all the right things and her support was invaluable. She never gave her opinion, however she did handout the best advice when I was struggling, especially as Nika suffered from a severe reflux. There were many times when I felt rather overwhelmed and Fiona was always there with her natural gift of keeping me calm, a great sense of humour, and overall providing me with ways to cope with it all."
