As your postnatal doula I want you to feel empowered, confident and nourished in the early days after having your baby.
Having my own daughter made me realise how valuable the support of an experienced, compassionate professional is to ensure a brilliant start to your motherhood journey. As your postnatal doula I will help you find your feet and make sure you have enough support to discover your intuitive mothering ability.
I’m a mentored postnatal doula, which means I provide a doula service at a lower rate while I gain experience as a postnatal doula. I work closely with an experienced doula, my mentor, who provides support and supervision while I support clients. Please enquire for more information about contracting me as a postnatal doula from late August/early September.
I’m there to offer an extra pair of hands and a listening ear, celebrating the good days with you and there to support you on the more challenging ones.
As a postnatal doula and yoga teacher specialising in pregnancy and postnatal recovery, I can also offer you gentle and effective breath, body and mind practices to help you feel strong, centred and connected. Postnatal yoga draws on self-care principles and a unique understanding of the postnatal body, and if this is something you’re interested in, these practices will help you feel nourished, energised and calm in this period.
I can help with a range of tasks, including (but not limited to):
Support with breastfeeding or bottle feeding
Talking through any questions or worries
Debriefing your birth
Caring for your baby so you can get vital rest
Gentle postnatal yoga including restorative sessions, breathwork or movement to ease aches and pains
Research or signposting to any relevant information or organisations
Cooking nourishing food for you and your family
Playing with siblings
