POSTNATAL DOULA SUPPORT

After giving birth, a woman goes through a lot of changes, both physical and emotional. As a postnatal doula, my primary focus is to mother the mother. I offer a gentle, reassuring presence and continuity of care to help women transition into their motherhood journey. 

I help create a nurturing environment for the new mother to recover and regain her strength. A warm, loving bubble at home where she can get plenty of rest and spend lots of time bonding with her baby… While keeping her well hydrated and nourished. I help her navigate her feelings, encouraging her to follow her maternal instincts. I listen to her without judgment. I also support her family as a whole, including her partner and other relatives.

What I can help you with


I encourage and support women to spend the first weeks after birth resting as much as possible with their baby to promote healing, recovery and bonding. 


I typically work with families for several weeks after birth, for as long as they need me. I provide emotional, practical and informational support that can be tailored to individual needs. I can help with:

  • light housekeeping tasks

  • running errands

  • cooking healthy and nutritious meals

  • taking care of your baby while you take a shower or get some much needed rest

  • building confidence with baby caring (handling, bathing, nappy change…)

  • providing a non judgemental, listening ear 

  • debriefing your birth experience

  • Helping you navigate your feelings as a new parent

  • Providing evidence-based information and guidance on a range of topics, such as: newborn behaviour, breastfeeding or bottle-feeding, sleep, babywearing…

  • Signposting local groups and activities in your community
