    Hello, I am Hannah and Mum to 5 children, we live in a small village in Devon surrounded by rolling hills and a 10-minute drive from the beach. I am a qualified Nursery Nurse and nurturing birth Doula. I volunteer for a family support charity, whilst training to be a practitioner with the National Childbirth Trust. My first memory of being fascinated with pregnancy and birth, was when I was 7 and a family friend visited: she was pregnant with twins and I remember questioning my mum for hours, about how she could have TWO babies in her tummy! Fast Read more [...]

    I am a mother of 2 young children living in Chiswick. I work as a Birth and Postnatal Doula in and around West and Central London.

As your doula I can support you both physically and emotionally throughout pregnancy, labour and the postnatal period. I can support you in working together with your care providers by helping you Read more [...]

    I became a doula because I passionately believe that all women deserve to be supported to birth however they choose. I have been a doula for 5 years and have had the privilege to be at many different types of births, all unique and powerful and extremely humbling. I balance working with raising 3 young children and looking after our assortment of animals.

    I am a British America mother of 3. I came to the doula world from my own experience with a wonderful doula who helped my family and I tremendously for the birth of my last child. Her calm happy energy was so powerful for me that I felt that more people should be able to have the ability for someone to be there as a sounding board, calm reassurance, and positive energy before during and after birth. To pursue this I attended the gurus of all things birth Michel Odent and Lilianna Lammers doula course and gained my accredited status Read more [...]
