I’m Jo, a mother of three lovely and lively children and a birth and post-natal doula. I live in beautiful North Cornwall and work across the whole of Cornwall and the Devon border. I support all kinds of families and all types of births including those at home, in birth centres (Helston, Penrice and Truro) and at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth and the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro.
Pregnancy is an exciting time, a sacred time and a time to be honoured and nurtured by those around you. Becoming a parent is an amazing and transformative process, but it can also feel overwhelming as there is so much to think about. As a doula I will walk alongside you listening to your hopes and fears, help you to navigate your way through information and explore all the options available to you. I will do everything I can to enable you to have a positive and empowered birthing experience, no matter where or how you birth your baby.
I am a trained breastfeeding peer supporter volunteering in the community and on the post-natal ward at the Royal Cornwall Hospital. I also offer Mother Blessings and Postnatal Sealing (Closing the Bones) Ceremonies. I share in your excitement about your pregnancy and feel a deep gratitude when you invite me into your sacred and intimate birthing space. If you would like more information about what I offer, please get in touch.
