As an experienced doula it is my absolute honour, joy and privilege to have begun my Doula UK Mentoring journey, where I am able to doula other, newer doulas on their journey.
I can only hope to help mentees to find the love and passion I have for the role and to support them to find the way forward with doulaing that works for them.
We have a small, secret group on Facebook for sharing information and my mentees are all welcome to come along to my regular meetups.
I provide support in many forms, in person, online, zoom and telephone – distance is no object.
I first came across Samantha through a home birth Facebook group she runs, the Home Birth Support Group UK, I saw the amazing woman centred support and information she offers, all on her own time, so when I saw her name on the Doula UK Mentor list it was a no brainer.
I later learned of all the community projects she is involved in, contributing to her wide breadth of experience across the field of pregnancy, birth and parenthood.
As a mentee it instantly felt right, she is laid back, grounded and knowledgable and I’m so excited to walk the beginnings of my Doula journey beside her.
‘I have been part of Samantha’s Homebirth Facebook page – Home Birth Support Group UK, for over a year. I found myself drawn to her comments and guidance in the group. She is so passionate about women’s choice and so knowledgeable.
I feel like she has very similar views to me and always felt inspired by her and the way she helped women in the group.
I knew before I did my Doula training I would ask her if she would be my mentor when I completed my course.
I was over the moon that Samantha agreed to be my mentor and already I feel I have benefited by having her by my side.’

When I saw Sam’s warm, smiling face on her website, I knew that I wanted her for my doula mentor. She is warm hearted without being sentimental, practical and real. I am so glad I found her and she wants to be my mentor.
Thank you, Sam.
