  • Hello! I’m Alex and I’m a Birth and postnatal doula, infant massage instructor and hypnobirthing instructor (available from July 2018) covering Hampshire and surrounding counties (Wiltshire, Surrey) within 45 min drive from my home.
    I’m a Mummy of three wonderful children (born in 2006,2009 and 2014), married and live in the rural Hampshire countryside between Winchester and Basingstoke. I’m originally from Germany but moved to the UK in 2002.
    I’m passionate about pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period and as your birth doula, I provide continuous emotional, practical and informational support for you and your partner.
    Being able to make informed choices is vital for your overall birth experience and to make it a positive one.

  • Testimonials:

    “Alex, thank you for being our Doula. It was very short notice but you threw everything into it. Without you, we would have never considered a home birth and our little one wouldn’t have had the peaceful birth he was entitled to. We have learnt so much from you and it has opened our eyes to many possibilities! You have inspired, encouraged, shared and empowered me and all our special family.” C.K.

    “Dear Alex, thank you so much for all your help and support bringing our beautiful baby into the world. Your antenatal support was fantastic and we couldn’t have been better prepared to go into the birth experience with a positive frame of mind. Having you on our side on the big day gave us the confidence to face all the challenges we experienced head on, and to make the right decisions. Thank you for coming on this incredible journey with us and for sharing the best day of our lives, with such compassion and respect.” S&D

    “Dear Alex, Thank you so much for your amazing support and help. From all the wise advice before the birth, to your encouragement in the hospital. I cannot thank you enough for helping me to get through the birth and for your fantastic help, emotionally and practically, ever since. It has made the world of difference not just to me but to our whole family.” A
