More about me
Hello, I’m Charlotte, your dedicated birth and postnatal doula here in Teesside.
I’ve undergone comprehensive training with Developing Doulas, holding a level 6 in aromatherapy and certifications in various childbirth courses, including the national bereavement care pathway, optimal cord clamping, and the Positive Birthing Company’s “Closing the Gap” program. Additionally, I’m a certified hypnobirthing instructor with KG Hypnobirthing and an infant massage therapist trained by IAIM.
As a mum of 5 amazing boys, I intimately understand the significance of informed childbirth. My personal journey, marked by a lack of education and positive experiences, led me to become a doula. Advocating for the right birth during my fifth pregnancy, I faced pushback, seeking guidance from organisations like Birth Rights and AIMS. Now, as your doula, I’m committed to offering you the gift of an educated and empowered birth experience.
Beyond doula work, I’m a 25-year-old who finds joy in gaming and poetry. Embracing my identity as a disabled, neurodivergent, non-binary, and pansexual individual, I bring a unique and inclusive perspective to my practice. Let’s embark on this journey together, and I look forward to supporting you through the transformative process of welcoming your baby/ies.
