  • As a recognised birth and post natal doula I offer companionship and support from early pregnancy through to the early weeks of parenting.
    This includes supporting through baby loss.

  • About Me:

    I am a relaxed mum of 5 who feels passionate about new life and mothering. I love assisting women and families around birth, bringing practical support, encouragement, and promoting confidence.
    Having had personal experience of both hospital and home births, I feel I am able to support mothers in whichever environment they choose.

    I endeavour to doula in a releasing and empowering way that facilitates bonding between mother and baby. Whilst this often involves practical help I also offer emotional support, and am a good listener.

    Since training in 2007 I have been privileged to provide support for over 80 families.
    As a member of Doula UK I abide by their philosophy and code of practice and I am a mentor for their newly trained doulas.
    I am Head of Mentoring for Nurturing Birth.

    Having delivered four healthy babies (3 girls and 1 boy) my fifth baby died when I was 20 weeks pregnant. This experience of miscarriage deeply affected me and has given me an empathy for others who find themselves loosing their baby. I am a volunteer for Miscarriage Association and run the Manchester support group. I am available as a Doula for those having to go through the distress of miscarriage or stillbirth.
    I am the writer and facilitator of "Supporting Every Birth", an interactive workshop for health professionals and Doulas looking at supporting both clients and themselves through all birth journeys including baby loss.
