I am a certified Birth & Postnatal Doula being mentored with Doula UK. I am based in Northern Ireland and cover the majority of maternity hospitals in the area. As a birth doula I offer a comprehensive package including ante and postnatal visits, on-call 24/7 from 38 weeks of your pregnancy, with you during labour from as soon as you want me there, relevant signposting, emotional and practical support for you and your family. It is most important that together we can control a calm and relaxed environment so you can feel safe and confident to birth your baby, whatever your birth preferences are. As a postnatal doula I offer a flexible, individual support package to suit you and your family needs, as you adjust to life with your baby.
I am a very proud mum to 3 grown up children and have recently returned to settle in the UK after 28 years of living overseas, with my husband’s work. I was also honoured to be the birthing partner for my sister’s second child. My personal birthing experiences enhanced my keen interest in birth and babies and I embarked on a distance learning Social Sciences degree with Child Development as one of the starter modules. Ultimately my life experiences so far have brought me to this privileged opportunity of being a doula to new mums to offer them sound support to cherish one of the most precious experiences in their lives.
I am and always have been a strong believer in everyone being treated with respect and fairness. Knowledge is a great empowerment but not everyone knows everything! I am passionate about the importance of supporting women to have the most satisfying birth experience possible. It is so important for a new mum to have the confidence and knowledge to make informed decisions when bringing her baby into this world, in a dignified and appropriate manner.
I am very happy to discuss your individual needs – simply call or email me anytime!
