I cannot remember when I first heard the word ‘doula’ or what interested me in finding out more but what I do know is that it has only enhanced my longing to care and support for mums-to-be and new mums. The training I received was life
changing and touched me on a deep personal level. It enabled me to truly understand my own birth journeys and open myself up to being truly present for a woman during childbirth.
I am a Doula UK recognised birth and postnatal doula and I have experience of both natural births and births with interventions including emergency and elective cesarean births. I have training and experience in caring for the newborn baby and breastfeeding support, including advanced training with the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers (ABM).
I can offer antenatal birth preparation and hypnobirthing sessions and I am qualified in pregnancy massage and reflexology.
I offer compassionate support for abortion, miscarriage and loss and I am also qualified to relive the symptoms of trauma using the 3 Step Rewind Technique.
Whether you want a home birth or a cesarean, to bottle feed, breastfeed or both, at Mothers Spirit you will receive non-judgemental support and person-centred care. I believe that every woman has the right to strive for the type of birth
that she wants, she has the right to make her own informed choices and to be heard and respected.
