Hi, I am Rupa and I live in Petersfield, Hampshire. I am mother to two grown up children who are now happily living independently. I belong to a large extended family where nurturing and supporting each other is ingrained us.
I am a full time doula offering a flexible service in Surrey but also in Hampshire and West Sussex. I can work within an hours drive from my home.
Becoming a parent can be overwhelming and adapting to family life challenging, but I am there for you, to support you in becoming the parent you want to be.
I believe that women and their partners can need extra support at this time in their lives. Today, there is so much information out there which can be good but at the same time confusing and daunting for new parents.
As a birth doula, I accompany you and your partner, through your unique pregnancy, birth and into parenthood. I offer practical and emotional assistance, helping you to understand your options so that you are able to make informed choices that are right for you. When couples have an active role in making these decisions, a positive birth experience is far more likely and more memorable.
As a postnatal doula, I am there to offer you continual emotional support, to listen and reassure you. I offer practical help to aid the smooth running of your home and support the family adjust to the birth of your baby. I can assist you with older siblings, baby care, feeding and sleeping. This can also be a chance for you to rest, reflect, gain confidence and bond with your baby.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
