I listen, hear your needs and together we can explore and create the birth space you would like to create.

When I think of birth I feel ….energised ….inspired ….in awe ….full of expectation ….and confident in the mother’s ability.
I hope that you too will feel the same way when it is time for you to birth positively.

My experiences as a Doula have allowed me to be confident in supporting but not limited to;

  • Gestational Diabetes in pregnancy and at birth
  • Dealing with Rhesus Negative blood group
  • Induction
  • Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU)
  • Vaginal Birth after Caesarean (VBAC)
  • Labouring at home
  • Births at many hospitals and including water births both at home and hospital
  • Use of gas and air, Pethidine, Epidurals

Sweet words from recent clients –

Both my husband and I felt at ease with Erika and she made us feel in good hands. She was very informative with the teaching/ training for the hypnobirthing and when the day finally arrived, we were very well looked after. We were guided through the tough parts and got the VBAC we dreamed of! Overall we are thrilled with the service we received and would HIGHLY recommend Erika and her services to anyone considering it.

I knew as soon as I met Erika that she was the doula for us. She has a permanent sense of calm about her and just knows what will work for you before you even do. Erika provided a huge amount of information and gentle, unbiased guidance allowing us to make the right choices for us. This resulted in the most positive birth experience I could’ve ever imagined, especially as I was induced. Her set up and presence at our sides during labour was incredible, she was our rock! We’ve had a rollercoaster of a ride with our baby due to a number of factors and Erika has still been there as a source of support. I truly believe certain people are destined to follow certain paths in their life and Erika was born to be a doula.
