I have supported mothers and their families in a variety of births including water births, VBACs, multiples (natural births), and c-sections. I am committed to providing parents with the calm support and guidance they seek in order to make your birthing experience as positive as possible.
Antenatally, I can support you with hypnobirthing techniques so that you feel more calm, confident and better prepared for the birth of your baby. I can to sign post you to the latest evidence based information to support your birth choices and have resources to help you prepare your birth preferences document.
I am currently offering virtual antenatal, birth and infant feeding support. Get in touch to find out more.
For birth support we may meet two or three times before the birth. Together we will talk through anything that is worrying you regarding birth. We will talk about birth preferences and work on preparing a birth plan. My aim is always be to support you to feel informed, and empowered during your journey to birth. I will be on call from two weeks before the estimated due date until the baby is born. Please get in touch if you would like more details.

I am there to help you with caring for your baby and yourself, and I am always happy to help around the house and do some light cooking if needed. I am also there to listen and support you with infant feeding issues and can help you with baby wearing if you would like to wear your baby in a sling.

Grace was our doula for the birth or our second son. I had had a c-section with my first child after having a relatively straight forward labour. I felt I needed extra support to achieve a VBAC so I looked for a local doula. Having Grace with us made a world of difference to how I laboured. She was someone we could both trust and depend on and I could not have done it without the back message she gave me. She was also great with my first born and after the birth she brought us a home cooked meal and made sure that we were all looked after. Having a doula was the best decision we made.
E & S
Having Grace as a birth and postnatal doula has been the best choice we could make. Grace is sweet, understanding, never judgemental and was a real support for both me and my husband. During my long labour, having her there meant my husband could go home for a few hours and get some rest, knowing I was fully taken care of and not alone. And postnatally, especially after my husband went back to work, having Grace coming over for a few hours during the day, helped me not feeling alone or helpless, trusting there was someone caring and that I could trust with my baby while resting or taking a shower. Definitely I would ask Grace to be our doula again should we have a second child!
