Passionate about helping you to achieve the birth experience you want
I am a supportive, non-judgemental person and I would feel privileged to talk to you with a view to helping you navigate your birth experience. I am passionate about supporting you in this exciting and often daunting time and, as I am a mentored Doula, I am backed by a Doula mentor. She has over 20 years of experience. This also means that my fees are initially low but my care will be excellent.
I bring to the profession 23 years’ of service supporting families and children in the multicultural community in my Pastoral role of Assistant Headteacher in a Harrow school. I left this position to follow my heart and become a Doula.
I love learning about different cultures and would make it a priority to equip myself with the necessary knowledge and understanding to enable me to support parents and families from a variety of cultures and backgrounds.
I am a very energetic mother of four including triplets and a grandmother of twelve including twins so I can offer my experience, encouragement and help to parents of multiples who may find the prospect daunting initially.
I will offer you a minimum of two appointments antenatally when I would ensure that I got to know you and your family. I would listen carefully to what is important for you in your birth experience and take on board your individual hopes and dreams. I would be happy to accompany you to appointments if you require this.
Following this, I will be on call for you, and you alone, for two weeks before your due date until you go into labour and I will then support you, emotionally and practically, in achieving your goals within a framework of flexibility. Once your baby is born (or babies if you are having a multiple birth) I will be with you while you embark on your breastfeeding journey and assist you in the early stages of motherhood. If you need more support I will arrange this.
An initial meeting to meet and see if I am the Doula for you is without any commitment.
