    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 [...]

    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 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 [...]

    I am a doula and active birth teacher based in Putney About Me I have been a doula and an active birth teacher for 15 years now, and feel as excited and committed to supporting women in pregnancy and birth as I did at my journey’s start. I recently published a book called How to Have a Baby, a full-to-bursting bible of really great mother-gathered guidance. The learning never ends – at every labour I discover something new – a way to soothe, a position I’ve never seen before, a way to navigate a protocol or take charge of a Read more [...]
