More about me
In 2019 now that my babies are babies no longer I took the much awaited step into becoming a doula, being a doula works really well alongside teaching antenatal classes, pregnancy and postnatal yoga, baby massage, baby yoga classes, and being a baby wearing advisor and running the local home birth group.
Being pregnant and having a baby can be such a special time, but it also brings change and with it a whole range of mixed emotions and feelings. During the last seven years I have supported many families from pregnancy through to parenthood.
I feel that my role as a doula is to walk alongside you in your journey into parenthood, whether this is for the first time or you are adding to your family. I can offer you plenty of encouragement, a listening ear, information, compassion, support and practical help. I am always completely honoured when an expectant couple asks me to be their doula during pregnancy and birth and being beside a family as they welcome their new baby into the world.
Knowing that someone will support and provide continuity for you during your pregnancy, birth and postnatally no matter what your choices, can make the world of difference to how you feel. I want you to feel you are being supported by someone who really does care and won’t mind being contacted whatever time day or night.
I live in Belper with my husband and two daughters and love the countryside and spending time outdoors particularly in the woods and when I am not being a doula, I also love:
- Walks in the countryside as we live in the Amber Valley and really close to the Peak District
- A good book whether it is historical fiction, biography or something factual (love a good birthy book too)
- A glass of red wine or a fruity gin
- Sitting in my garden in the sunshine
- Baking and creating anything be it biscuits, cakes, quiche or tarts or just flapjack
- Watching films and a good Netflix series
- A trip to the theatre
- Family camping trips
