  • I am a mum to two wonderful spirited children, who I had different births and postnatal experiences with.

    I have been in childcare since I was 17 and gained my NNEB, starting out as a private Nanny, before I went into a nursery and then travelling.

    I feel that the doula role is what I’ve been searching and aiming for, for the past 20+ years, listening and offering families support, practically and emotionally through the early days/ weeks/ months of having a new baby.
    Since I started working I have helped many families, with care and attention to their individual needs and wants.
    When I was a private nanny I favoured starting with them when babies and helping and supporting them as they grow as a family.
    During this time I have also worked as a maternity nanny and in nurseries.
    I understand how important it is to have positive and non-judgemental support during this amazing transition into parenthood.
