  • Hi! I am a mentored doula offering birth and postnatal packages in South West London. As your birth and/or postnatal doula you can be sure that I will be completely committed to, and full of love for, you and your baby. Have a read of what I can do for you (in the ‘About Me’ section), and then please get in touch if you think I can help you!

  • About Me:

    I live with my husband and our three lively children in Tooting, South West London. I trained to be a primary school teacher after university and spent twelve happy years in the classroom. Whilst having my babies I trained with the NCT to become an antenatal teacher. I then taught for the NCT for several years, and am now proud to be teaching for The Bump and Baby Club, (www.bumpandbabyclub.com). In addition to this I offer my own refresher sessions to those expecting their second babies, baby massage classes, and various postnatal support groups. I adore Tooting and the surrounding areas, and love helping parents form new friendships and support networks within our fantastic community. I have always wanted to be a doula as well, and the training with Nurturing Birth was as wonderful as I had hoped it would be.

    I offer birth and postnatal packages.
    The birth package includes two antenatal visits where we will discuss your wishes for the birth and make a plan of how best to implement them, and being on call for you from 38 weeks – I will be ready to drop everything and come to you when you need me. I will attend your birth and stay with you all the time, supporting you practically, physically, emotionally and mentally – by helping you and your partner make informed decisions. The birth package also includes two postnatal visits – I will help you in any way I can as you get to know your baby and signpost you to further support if needed. Unlimited phone/text/email communication throughout goes without saying. The total cost of the birth package is £200. (£100 is payable upon booking, and the remaining £100 will be due on the first day of the on-call period.)

    As your postnatal doula I will do any of the following to help you as you recover from the birth and adapt to your new normal:
    Debrief your birth
    Listen to you
    Support feeding (breast or bottle)
    Help you to make informed choices by providing you with evidence based information
    Lend books/direct you to relevant articles/information etc
    Help you create a support network
    Take care of your baby while you sleep
    Make meals for you
    ‘Manage’ tricky visitors (!)
    Laundry
    Dishwasher
    Tidying up
    Change bedding
    Hoovering
    Ironing
    School/nursery run
    Food shopping/errands
    Dog walking
    Help with older children’s homework
    Anything else that needs doing

    Please get in touch if you think we could be a good fit!
