Offering full-spectrum antenatal and postnatal assistance to help prospective, expectant and new parents to navigate their birth and parenting choices with years of personal and professional experience providing tailor-made, informational support in an inclusive, family-centred way

Pregnancy, Labour & Birth


As your Birth Doula, I will meet with you (and your partner) at least twice before the birth to discuss your plans and preferences.


Before the delivery, I will be a phonecall away to provide reassurance and support.


As the delivery approaches, I will be on 24hr call to attend your labour and delivery and will stay with you until you and the baby are settled.

I am also providing remote services for people who prefer that option or who are unable to have a second birth partner present in the birth room.

My postnatal support is also available online or over the phone.

* What's the difference between a recognised and a mentored doula?

Mentored doulas

A Mentored Doula has completed a Doula UK approved Preparation Course and is involved in Doula UK's Recognition Process. This means that they have a Mentor providing support and supervision within a framework for reflective practice until they has gained sufficient experience to become a Recognised Doula. A Mentored Doula's fees reflect their previous and current experience, their expenses and the going rate in their area.


Recognised doulas

A Recognised Doula has been evaluated by a Doula UK Doula Mentor at the end of the Recognition Process, as having sufficient experience to practise without on-going mentoring. Doula UK nevertheless continues to provide support for all its members.
