Mentored Postnatal Doula, Recognised Birth Doula
I live in Farnham Surrey with my husband and our three children, 22, 15 and 14. I worked as a midwife for 14 years giving me valuable experience in pregnancy and childbirth. My goal now, as a doula, is to ensure that you feel safe, relaxed and confident before, during and after the birth of your baby. I can support you through the joyful journey to motherhood – and help you deal with whatever you encounter along the way.
I understand how daunting pregnancy- and beyond- can be. My role is not to replace your partner, mum, friend or midwife, but to provide unbiased, calm and knowledgeable support while helping you explore the many choices and concerns that early motherhood can bring.
I offer Birth and Postnatal Packages which include:
- antenatal meetings to discuss your birth preferences
- accompanying you to antenatal appointments, scans etc if required
- supporting you throughout labour and birth
- discussing the choices of feeding your newborn
This list is by no means exhaustive, so please contact me if you would like to know more about my role as a doula and what I can offer you.

Experience & Specialities:
As a practicing nurse and midwife for 14 years I have supported many expectant mums and been present at hundreds of births. As a result I have wide experience of different birth scenarios and outcomes. After raising my family I trained as a doula to be able to support women to feel safe, comfortable and confident, before during and after birth.
