Hi I am Kelly, I personally found the perinatal stage so inspiring but at the same time found it difficult to find balanced information about my options. As a doula, my aim is to support your family so that you find the tools that best supports your vision for pregnancy, labour, birth and early parenthood.

As a doula I feel my most important job is to support you as a pregnant woman and your birthing partner so that you can both find your inner “trust” of the birth process. This is a trust in mind, body and baby to work together for the best outcome. Coupled with this is the importance of understanding your options for pregnancy, birth and early parenting.
These two elements will provide the confidence to listen to your body and baby from pregnancy, through labour and into parenting. This will help you to make educated decisions about the care you and your baby need.
The ideal result is that as a mother you find your inner trust and strength to take ownership of your labour and baby’s arrival, whilst making the most of the support and resources available to you.

As a mother of two, I understand the importance of finding a support team that fits your preferred approach. I hope that like me, you too find your perfect support team.
I’d be honoured to be contacted by you for a no-obligation chat to see if I am a good fit for your family.

Services and Pricing information

As a doula I strive to provide good quality information as well as emotional and physical support to you and your family as you need it. I will honour the choices you make for yourself, your baby and your family. During our antenatal meetings we will explore your unique wishes and needs for your pregnancy, labour and birth. I aim to provide you with evidence based information to help you build a picture of what choices are right for your family.

During labour, I will attend as and when you request. I will support both you and your birth partner by keeping an eye on food and drink, offering techniques according to the wishes we discussed in our antenatal meetings such as acupressure, massage, water, visualisation, sound and movement. I will stay with you until after your baby is born and you are feeling settled. Then I will leave to allow you to bond as a family in those precious first few hours.

Once your baby is home, I can offer help to families to assist with birth recovery and to help the family build strength and confidence. I offer practical support such as birth debriefing, nursing support, and basic newborn care (such as using baby carriers, reusable nappies, infant pottying or bathing) and offer to attend to light household duties so that you are able to recover from your birth. I am also able to point you in the direction of local services which may assist you in your newest parenting journey.
