    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 [...]

    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 am a British America mother of 3. I came to the doula world from my own experience with a wonderful doula who helped my family and I tremendously for the birth of my last child. Her calm happy energy was so powerful for me that I felt that more people should be able to have the ability for someone to be there as a sounding board, calm reassurance, and positive energy before during and after birth. To pursue this I attended the gurus of all things birth Michel Odent and Lilianna Lammers doula course and gained my accredited status Read more [...]

    Giving birth to my children was life changing experience, and I was inspired to become a doula and help other women to experience the joy of birth and motherhood. I am truly passionate about the idea that this experience should have a positive and transformative impact on your life. I try to provide the environment in which this can be achieved. The approach I adopt when supporting a woman is to focus on understanding the individual client’s needs, and meet them at their level of experience. As your doula, I will help you prepare for birth, discuss your choices and Read more [...]

    I am a birth doula preferring to cover my local area of around SW18 so I can offer a really personalised service. I also work part time as an NHS doula at Chelsea and Westminster hospital in the Birth Centre which gives me a real insight into the hospital. About me I have been told I have a relaxed easy manner, a smiley face and a way of putting people at their ease – I just really enjoy people especially pregnant women. I was a planned single mother at 28 and my son is now all grown up. Now my 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 [...]

    Hello, What a pleasure to be doing this amazing work. I am passionate about empowering women and men to feel confident in their decision making for themselves and their children. The act of physical birth is deeply entwined with the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of the woman and the environment. When we acknowledge this, the woman and her family are empowered to direct the course of events to their own satisfaction. I am a New Zealand educated midwife, now practicing as a doula here in the UK. I have been involved in women’s physical, mental and emotional health for Read more [...]
