More about me
Hi I’m Emily, thank you for clicking on to my link!
I am a pregnancy and postnatal doula based in Belper, Derbyshire.
Birth has completely changed me as a person. An empowering birthing experience with my first child led me to be in awe of the capabilities, strength and power of our bodies. It evoked a huge passion in me and so I decided to train with NCT in 2014 to provide antenatal/parenting classes in my local area. This training led me into the birth world.
In 2020 I decided to take the next step and trained with Developing Doulas to provide both birth and postnatal support to women and families in the area. I believe in women empowering women, connection and continuity. To be present during this hugely transformative time in a person’s life is the greatest privilege and in return I offer my consistent support and authenticity.
In 2022 I trained with Wildflower Early Years to offer baby massage courses and in the same year I trained with Amy Yoga to provide pregnancy, postnatal and mother and baby yoga classes. I have used yoga for many years of my own life to feel more grounded, connected and to look after my body and mind in a way that is enjoyable and achievable to actually do! It makes sense to be able to offer this to people that will really benefit from it – pregnant and postnatal mothers.
I am also a breastfeeding advocate and previously volunteered with a local breastfeeding support group, supporting families on their feeding journeys since 2013.
*As of August 2023 I have paused my on call birth support offering whilst I commit to further yoga training. If you are a returning client, please do get in touch about birth support and I will do my best to honour your time. I continue to offer scheduled antenatal and postnatal support.*
I would love to chat to you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch to see how I can support you.
