More about me
Hi! I’m Zara and I’m a birth and postnatal Doula based in Surrey.
I birthed my business, Doulabud, in 2010 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 (birth and postnatal) 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 volunteer for the Pelvic Partnership and I am also co-chair for my local Maternity Voices Partnership.
If you think you’d like work with me, please get in touch to arrange a chat to see whether we might be a good fit.
Thank you for reading!
Much DDoula love, Zara x
