Personal Introduction:

Hi I’m Lucinda, a Birth and Postnatal Doula based in Ringwood, on the Dorset/Hampshire border. I am also Lactation Consultant.

I’ve been working with new families for over a decade to help them transition into the wonderful (and often daunting) world of parenting as gently and holistically as possible.
I love this work and it gives me immense satisfaction to be of service in the way I do.

As a Doula, my work is to be alongside you during your pregnancy, beside you for your birth and to support you during the tender postnatal time for as long as you feel you need it.

The support can be emotional, physical, practical or informational, or all of the above.
This is your birth and your baby. Your needs and wishes are what’s important, and knowing your options really helps you make choices that feel right for you.

As a Lactation Consultant my work is to help you meet your breastfeeding goals; be it one hour, one day or one year.
You will have access to the gold standard in breastfeeding support with the most up to date specialist knowledge and practical tips honed from years of service.
I aim to get to the heart of any feeding problems, by identifying any underlying issues and putting steps in place to manage and then resolve those issues, as quickly as possible.

I offer
• Birth & Breastfeeding Preparation Sessions
• Birth & Postnatal Care Packages
• In home Lactation Consultations
• Joint Baby Clinics with Cranial Chiropractor Anneli Hulkkonen at Back in Balance, Wimborne

I will support you with love, care and integrity at this very transformative time.

Please get in touch if you’d like to explore working together.

Lucinda is professional, hugely enthusiastic, knowledgeable and greatly loving. On the birthing day, Lucinda was brilliant. I had the most incredibly positive and powerful birthing experience. Which I can honestly say was one of the best days of my life and Lucinda played a key role in helping us achieve that. Melissa, Dorchester

This lady is a miracle worker! Worth every single penny and was a huge support! Natalie, Bournemouth

Having Lucinda as my doula was the best decision I could have made to support me and my baby. She offered consistency of care and made me feel prepared, informed and confident.
During my pregnancy Lucinda helped prepare us, whether that was practical advice, answering questions, setting expectations, providing reading, attending appointments and helped us write our birth plan. She was great at bringing my birth partner/husband on the journey so he was still a central part of the birth but had the extra support there.
During birth her presence really helped keep me keep calm and she talk me through what to expect or any uncertainty. She was able to offer in the moment advice so we could make informed decisions. I also felt the staff at the hospital were more diligent because of her.
After the birth Lucinda was on hand to visit and answer questions. We had a really positive and successful breast feeding experience and I 100% put that down to how Lucinda supported us before, during and after the birth. It’s such a wonderful thing to see you baby thriving from day dot and breast feeding has been a lovely way to bond.
I wish everyone could have a doula to make their birth as positive as possible. I met a few doulas before choosing Lucinda. My reason for choosing Lucinda is she truly respects your choices - not pushing anything onto us but allowing us to make informed decision. She has a warm, calming presence with a sense of authority which was important to us when communicating our wishes on our behalf. Also her unmatched knowledge and passion for breast feeding was fantastic! I will be forever grateful to Lucinda. Aimee, Bournemouth.
