Hi, my name is Natalie. I am a fully certified Nurturing Birth Doula in Hampshire, UK.
A wife to Gareth, mother to Zachary, an incredibly energetic toddler who brings as much joy to my life as he does cheekiness and an Operations Manager in the Financial Services sector. Life is busy but birth and babies wait for no one!
I work in a heavily regulated industry where decisions are based on data, logic and hard evidence. Yet during my first pregnancy I dismissed the notion of a doula as being for someone without a birth partner, because that was the ‘advice’ I had received and had trusted without question.
It is only following my own birth experience (which was overall pretty wonderful albeit with a bit of a dramatic finale) that I started to seek out for myself the evidence based research for doula support –
-shorter labour time
-reduction in cesarean rates
-forceps and vacuum use -reduction in low APGAR scores after 5 minutes
I’m a passionate believer in women’s innate ability to birth and that each birth is unique and personal to you. Whatever you choose to have in your birth plan I would be privileged to be there to support and empower you at such a defining moment in your life as you grow your family.
I am located in Hampshire in between Winchester and Alton and cover surrounding areas within an hour of home.
This covers, Winchester, North Hants Basingstoke, Andover, Royal Surrey Guildford and Frimley Park Hospital and of course your own home if this is where you plan to welcome your baby.
If you would like to know more about me and how I can help you have an empowered and supported birth and/or postnatal experience please contact me for an initial chat.
