How to contact Charlotte :
I am a mother of 2 grown up children and have a young grandchild. My life has had many chapters including working as a qualified counsellor and childminder. I currently volunteer as a birth companion for refugee women so to become a Doula feels like a natural progression and the next exciting chapter. My friends encouraged me to train to be a Doula because of their first hand experience of my being there practically and emotionally when they had children and they say I'm 'a natural caregiver'.
I would like to bring to being a Doula my skills of listening and non-judgement with a person centred approach encompassing the core values of what a Doula offers:
- Practical Help
- Emotional Support
I believe that awareness equals choice and whatever direction parents wish to go in I shall adjust my sails to the wind and go with them.
My little ones have flown the nest so I have great flexibility with my time for post natal support including overnight care if needed.
My qualifications include Diploma in Humanistic Counselling, Developing Doulas, Level 3 in childcare, Level 3 Safeguarding, Level 2 Food hygiene and hold a current DBS certificate.
"As new parents we really appreciated Charlotte's practical help and calm presence. When I was struggling with breastfeeding her support really helped and made a difference. E & G White
