Looking for a Doula in South Wales?

A recognised Doula UK Birth and Post Natal Doula I am based just off the A470.

A mother to 4 children, it is my role to support you to have the empowered birth you want. An empowered birth is one in which your views are listened to, you make informed choices about how you birth your baby, where you birth your baby and when you birth your baby. I support at home, in a midwife led unit (MLU) or a consultant led ward (CLU); for a caesarean section or vaginal birth - medicated or unmedicated. All birth choices are equally important, equally valid and equally magical.
