    I am a Birth and Postnatal doula serving North West London and surrounding areas. It is a great privilege to support new parents as they enlarge their families and help to make the process as smooth as possible. I inform, educate, support physically and emotionally and use my experience from more than 60 births to guide clients and support them in the early weeks. For those who want to breastfeed their babies, I have nearly 40 years of experience. I am a peer breastfeeding supporter in an NHS hospital and have had training from an Internationally Board Certified lactation consultant. Read more [...]

    My Name is Eleanor (most people call me Els). I was born in 1974 and married Jim in 1999. We have 3 children, Emily, Thomas and Dominic (Born in 2000, 2002, and 2005).We live on the Buckinghamshire/Oxfordshire border.  I spent the first 14 years of my working life, until 2008 in the recruitment industry.  I believe this has developed my natural ability to listen to what people want and then to support them to try and achieve it…very much like a doula. Since becoming a doula I have attended over 100 births and have supported dozens of families with their new babies. I started Read more [...]

  • Sophie Bartholomew

    I am a mentored post natal doula supporting families in South West London. A doula literally means ‘a woman who serves’. In the past, and still in traditional societies, this job would have been carried out by other mothers in the communities, grandmothers, aunts, sisters and neighbours. Today, particularly in London, new mums step away from what many perceive as the supportive networks of their busy work days and embark on a solitary journey as a mother, literally retreating into their homes and closing the door. The human race has never parented like this – it’s really crazy if you Read more [...]

    Giving birth to my children was life changing experience, and I was inspired to become a doula and help other women to experience the joy of birth and motherhood. I am truly passionate about the idea that this experience should have a positive and transformative impact on your life. I try to provide the environment in which this can be achieved. The approach I adopt when supporting a woman is to focus on understanding the individual client’s needs, and meet them at their level of experience. As your doula, I will help you prepare for birth, discuss your choices and Read more [...]

    Hello! I am a mentored antenatal, birth and post-birth doula working in Central, West and South London. I completed my course with Nurturing Birth having been a nanny and teacher for children of all ages for many years. I myself am a mother of two daughters and know firsthand what a transformative and incredible period of time pregnancy, birth and those first months can be – but I also know how intensely overwhelming and isolating it can feel at times. My goal is to relieve this, and any fears the new parents may have, and to be a support and Read more [...]
