Nottingham Birth & Postpartum Doula

The body undergoes many physiological and physical changes through pregnancy and birth and after so it’s important that you receive continuous support; physically and mentally.

I provide birth doula services in Nottinghamshire and surround areas, and postpartum doula services in Nottingham.

For more info on what a doula is and why postpartum support is so important, check out my blogs on What Is A Doula and The Fourth Trimester.

BIRTH DOULA

Are you first-time mum or had a previously had a negative birth? Do you need someone to support you throughout your pregnancy as well as be with you during birth?

Pregnancy and giving birth is one of the most amazing experiences but it can come with a lot of anxiety or stress.

I understand that every mother and every pregnancy is different, so I’m here to listen to your birth wishes and work with you so that you can feel confident and in control. Not all births go to plan so I will guide you during birth, so you can make choices that are right for you and your family.

Positivity is key to having an empowering birth experience, I’ll be there to settle your anxieties and fears and keep you focused during your birth as well as support your partner if you have one.

I offer a personal Birth Doula service, specialising in your mental & emotional well-being. You’ll get continuity of care, guidance and non-judgemental, tailored support throughout your journey so you can feel confident about your choices, calm during birth and transition positively after.

What’s Included?

You’ll get 2 antenatal and 1 postnatal sessions (2 hours each) as well as continuous support until 6 weeks post-birth. I’ll also be on-call from 38-42 weeks and will be there holding your hand and supporting your birth partner during labour, to help you feel calm, confident and empowered.

As a bonus, you’ll also get access to an online interactive antenatal course.

POSTPARTUM DOULA

Had a baby recently and feeling absolutely exhausted? Do you need someone to help you adjust and recover after birth? Struggling with breastfeeding or managing a your older children with a newborn?

Your body also undergoes many emotional and physiological changes through pregnancy, birth and after so it’s important that you get continuous support to help you recover.

I offer Postpartum Doula services with a difference, using my knowledge of breastfeeding, sleep, newborn behaviour and mental health.

I will be that extra pair of hands, giving you emotional and practical support to adjust to life after birth, so you’re be able to take your time, rest and recover fully after birth.

Unfortunately, we don’t live in a village anymore, but mums still need that support. Whether this is your 1st or 6th baby, I’ll help you with your newborn, self-care and managing day-to-day life so you can have a positive transition.

What Can I Expect?

You’ll get in-person hands-on support  to help you and your baby build a strong relationship as well as your whole family. Whether it’s helping with baby care, breastfeeding support, holding your baby while you shower or taking your first trip out, I’m there for you.
