postnatal doula support
The journey into parenthood can be so conflicting. Oh the LOVE, but the frustration too! Being unable to look after yourself and your home when you feel you need to. Postpartum can be such a vulnerable time full of push and pull.
Imagine having an extra pair of hands and support in those early weeks and months after birth. My role as a postnatal doula is to make you a cup of tea or some lunch, support your feeding journey, watch or hold baby while you have a nap or a shower, do some light housework while you feed, signpost you to some information, and so much more.
It completely depends on what you feel comfortable with- I’ll take your lead and we can come up with a plan together.
Price: £295 for 12 hours
Why work with me?
My background of 10 years in nursing means supporting people in a vulnerable time comes naturally to me. I wanted to support people postnatally because there are huge gaps in support in the healthcare system, and I could see this through the experiences of antenatal clients when we have kept in touch.
I am trained by The Postnatal Doula Academy, and have continuing professional development; including competencies in breastfeeding, safe sleep (training by Lullaby Trust), as well as LGBTQ+ and cultural awareness.
I’m also level 3 paediatric first aid trained, and teach Daisy First Aid classes to parents and parents-to-be.

If you’re interested in working with me, please fill out the form below and I’ll be in touch to sort out our first meeting.
The 12 hours can be split up into 2-3 hour visits during the daytime, once or twice weekly – whatever works for the both of us.
