    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. I believe that a positive birth experience can look very different for each woman and that being supported, listened to and having access to the right information to make your own informed choices about your care are what makes an experience positive. 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 [...]

    My name is Lula Danova. I am an AoR registered Reflexologist, a recognised Birth and postnatal Doula UK. My Doula UK mentoree lady was Ms Heather Guerrini. I am originally from Slovakia, Europe. I have been in UK since July 2000. I am bilingual, because my Mum spoke to me in Hungarian and my Father in Slovak language. I had a lovely childhood. I grew up closely with my (15 months) younger sister, under a big influence of my maternal grandmother. I studied Dental Technology at the Medical High School in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. When I graduated, I Read more [...]

    I live in SW London (near Clapham Junction). I have 2 children 1999 and 2001 (actually I can’t call them children, they are teenagers now & let’s not talk about the slamming doors!), so no worries about childcare. I cover all of South and Central London. I have supported births at Chelsea & Westminster, St Georges, Thomas’s, Kings, and The Portland Hospital. I have supported home births, water births, births on the labour ward, VBAC births, and been in theatre supporting C-Sections. I have also supported women with medical problems. I truly believe that every mother has the right to Read more [...]

    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 [...]

    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 [...]

    I am offering Birth and Post-natal services to any London based families and families to be. About Me My name is Chloe Ballu. I am a French (London based) mother of 2 young children. My work as a doula was led by my own journey into motherhood, with a new understanding of what loving, nurturing, and caring meant. I learnt how important selfcare, trust and learn to let go is. I am constantly researching and becoming open to new things. In my first pregnancy I was fortunate enough to receive the experience of the magnificent doula Liliana Lammers. Before this, Read more [...]
