I have the best job in the world. I am a recognised birth and postnatal doula. I live in Addlestone, Surrey.

I have four children who are now grown up and having children of their own. Each of my births was very different and  having had caesarean sections for the first two I totally believed in the ability of my own body to birth a baby naturally, which is exactly what I went on to do.

I adore new borns and to be included in their arrival into the world is truly a privilege and to know that I have played some part is an honour.

Every birth is different and I take as much time as possible getting to know my clients beforehand so that on the day I can support them in the way that suits their needs and wishes without being intrusive. I have supported clients through C-sections (being in theatre with them), forceps, hypno and water births. I have been lucky enough to be rebooked for subsequent births.

Postnatal care is different for every family and I enjoy helping each family adjust to having a new member. I help with all aspects of baby care, supporting mum as she recovers from the birth and catches up on some much needed sleep. I also help the home run smoothly by doing washing, loading the dishwasher, cooking etc.

Here is what some of my clients have said;

“Melanie is professional, reliable, trustworthy, patient and calm and I found these to be key attributes at a time when I needed support and felt very vulnerable. Melanie has a very positive attitude.”   JE  Chobham

“Melanie helped me trust my instincts and I had almost no fear about giving birth. I believe that Melanie’s preparation for my birth helped me to stay calm and give birth in almost the exact way I wanted.”  DW  Woking

“I cannot recommend Melanie enough as both a birth and postnatal doula.”  JB Egham
