I have previous experience of supporting all journeys to parenthood, which includes fertility treatment and adoption, so please give me a call and we can build a bespoke package together. I am happy for any of my packages to be broken into monthly payments and each one can also be scaled to suit different needs, so please do get in touch to discuss your preferences with me!

As your Doula I use my training, knowledge and experience to provide continuous support for you and your birth partner in planning and preparing for your baby’s arrival. I also assist you in navigating the South Wales Maternity trusts, most of which I have extensive experience working in. I cannot make decisions for you, but can give you up to date evidence-based information so you and your partner can make informed decisions that are right for you both… it’s all about working as a team! I am also happy to show you relaxation techniques, make suggestions for positioning and other comfort measures during your labour.

If you are considering asking me to be your Doula, the next step would be to arrange a free, no obligation initial chat. At this meeting you can ask questions and get to know each other better. We can either chat over the phone, meet in person at a local park with a coffee, or via Zoom video call.

Blooming in Motherhood - Postnatal Support £20 per hour

Tailored to those who want emotional, practical and informational support for both themselves and their immediate family following the first few weeks after birth or adoption.

Price typically includes any of the following:

  • Give mum time to rest and recover
  • Assist with breast/bottle feeding/ pumping
  • Encourage mum to grow in confidence with her new baby
  • Allow mum time and space to de-brief her birth experience
  • Provide emotional support for both parents
  • Spend some time with older siblings
  • Assist with baby care
  • Provide company when partner goes back to work
  • Make tea, coffee or light lunches

Parents often find it reassuring to know they have my support in their home or even on the end of the phone. I have supported parents in the postnatal period after birth and adoption, so my role within your household can be tailored to what you require at that time. It may be that I can take over care of the baby while mum takes a nap or has a bath, or free up time for dad while he goes shopping or takes some time out. I can entertain your older child while you establish feeding your newborn, or look after baby while you spend some quality time with your older child. Many women don’t take the full amount of time needed to rest and recover during postpartum… I am there to make sure you do!

Having someone who is calm, relaxed and used to dealing with newborn babies and toddlers can really help create a calm, relaxed atmosphere and family! I am primarily there to support and encourage so that I leave you as a close family unit with a confident mother who trusts her own instincts.
