    I work as a Birth and Postnatal Doula, Breastfeeding Peer Supporter and Baby Massage teacher. I am also a qualified Therapeutic Massage Practitioner, specialising in pregnancy and labour.  I recently won “Doula of the Year” at the MaMa Conference 2017. Along with Florence Etienne-Jackson I run Nurturing Birth training and mentoring doulas, as well as this Directory, helping parents to find the support they need in pregnancy, birth and the early postnatal period. Birth can be a positive, satisfying and empowering experience for women and their partners. Having a baby is the most precious, life-changing time and all too often Read more [...]

  • Lula Danova

    My name is Lula Danova. I am an AoR registered Reflexologist, a recognised Birth and postnatal Doula UK. My Doula UK mentor 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 in `Nappy Valley’ (near Clapham Junction). I have 2 children 1999 and 2001 (well technically they are teenagers now so let’s not talk about the slamming doors!), but on the plus side, this does mean I have no worries about childcare! I cover all of South and Central London. I have supported births at Chelsea & Westminster, St Georges, Thomas’s, Kings, Kingston and The Portland Hospital, both NHS and Private births. I have supported home births, water births, births in the birth centre and labour ward, epidurals, VBAC births, and been in theatre supporting C-Sections. Read more [...]

I am a married mother of four adult children, including twins and at the last count I had eight grandchildren! For those who want 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 [...]

  • Lucie Holtermann

    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 [...]

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 [...]
