Doula Services

A doula is someone who provides emotional, practical and informative support for women and families in the lead up to, during and immediately after childbirth.

I have been working as a doula in Northumberland and the surrounding areas since 2009. I have attended many different births at home, in birthing centres and in hospitals as well as having three of my own babies!

Bringing a child into the world is probably the most important thing we will ever do. There is so much to navigate, both in terms of your own emotional and physical journey as well as learning about the medical care that is offered and understanding our health care system.

Postnatally, I can help with your recovery, offer massage, advice on feeding and caring for your newborn and processing the birth.
