I am a birth and postnatal doula working in and around Swindon. I run a free antenatal support group, called 'Optimums-To-Be' and a homebirth support group called 'Swindon Homebirthers'. I hire out TENS machines and birthpools. I have trained as a maternity and nursing bra fitter and am currently training to be a breastfeeding counsellor. I am also a fully qualified babywearing consultant and run Swindon Sling Library.
As your birth doula I will support you during your pregnancy, labour and birth as well as the first days after your baby is born. I will assist you in achieving your desired birth experience and prepare you for your new arrival.
I am there to make you aware of the options available, enabling you to make your own informed choices, to listen to your concerns and to provide a calm and reassuring presence for you and your partner during labour.
As your postnatal doula I will offer both practical and emotional support, as well as information and advice on caring for your new baby.
If you want to know more, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am happy to discuss my services in more detail, answer any questions you may have or to set up a free, no-obligation, face-to-face meeting.
