  • Hi, I am a birth doula and live and work in Putney. I thoroughly enjoy every minute of being a doula, find it incredibly rewarding and unbelievably exciting.
    The journey of birth is the most amazing experience a woman can go through in life and I will be there to give you all the love, support and guidance to help you, your partner and family achieve a happy and fulfilling birth. I will keep you calm and focused during your labour and will point you in the right direction to help guide you through this emotional time. As a birth doula I feel I have so much to offer you, gentle guidance, empathy, constant support and of course excitement. I will always be there to listen and reassure you and will never interfere in the decisions you make for your birth plan.
    I am also a breastfeeding volunteer at Chelsea and Westminster so can help iron out any problems after your birth.

    Birth Doula Package:-
    An initial meeting to get to know you and your family (no charge)
    I will be on-call just for you 24/7 two weeks before and two weeks after your due date
    I will give you as much support as you need via phone or email
    Approximately two antenatal and two postnatal visits (or more if needed) to take place at your own home
    I will be there to support you and your partner during the birth from beginning to end until your baby has had his/her first feed and you are both properly settled.

  • About Me:

    I have three wonderful children who are a constant source of laughter, fun and information to me. My other loves in life are yoga, cooking, walking my Norfolk terrier in Richmond Park and pottery. My husband started his own fine wine business in London shortly after we were married and I have been involved in the administration and finances for the last 28 years. It has been a fascinating job but now my children have flown the nest I feel the need to do something completely different. I always had a desire to be a midwife but the wine business developed quickly so I had to put my dreams on hold. It is these dreams that have encouraged me to commence my journey towards becoming a doula.

  • I trained as a birth doula with Developing Doulas in London and am a member of Doula UK.
    I am also a Breastfeeding Support Volunteer at C&W hospital.
