    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 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 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 [...]

    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 [...]

    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 [...]
