More about me
Hi! I’m Zara, a birth and postnatal Doula based in Surrey. I birthed my business, Doulabud, in 2010 in order to support local expectant families on their very personal and unique journeys through pregnancy, birth and the early weeks of parenthood. I stand alongside my clients offering information, practical and emotional support and I believe strongly that the gentle guidance and companionship of a doula should be available to everyone. I understand that everyone is different and so I choose to work flexibly, led by my clients’ needs, tailoring my support to suit their individual circumstances. I can honestly say that I absolutely love my work – one of the greatest pleasures of this role is meeting new people and seeing them grow into confident parents! I am a proud member and Course Facilitator for Developing Doulas and it brings me huge joy and satisfaction supporting new Doulas on their path into birth work. I am also a Developing Doulas Companion and have many years of experience mentoring new Doulas. Alongside my work as a Doula, I am an Infant Feeding Counsellor for the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers and the charity, Maddie’s Miracle. I have recently completed my tongue tie assessor training with Carmelle Gentle. The in-depth and brilliant training is proving extremely useful, given the high numbers of babies presenting with feeding difficulties.
DOULA COMPANIONSHIP I love nurturing and guiding new Doulas as they start feeling their way into the role. I support birth and postnatal Doulas and have excellent experience My role is to Doula the Doula. I try to model being the best Doula I can be. Each relationship is unique and I really strive to give whatever support is needed, just as I do with my clients.
