I am a mentored birth doula and mentored postnatal doula.
Birth and Postnatal doula based in Oxfordshire, specialising in the postnatal period. I am passionate about the ‘4th trimester’ being a time of rest, recuperation and developing a positive relationship with your baby. I also run a Retreat in the Cotswolds for tired mamas who need some nourishment and nurturing.
As your birth or postnatal doula, it is my goal to help empower you and your partner to make informed decisions that are right for you and your family.

I will not give any advice, medical or otherwise, but will wholly support the educated decisions you choose for yourself, your baby, and your family. Take a look at my website for more information on package descriptions.
