Hi, I live in Basildon with my partner and my five wonderful children – 3 boys, 2 girls and a part-time step-daughter as well. This wealth of experience means that I am well acquainted with pregnancy and birth, both natural and instrumental, at hospital and at home and has led me to become a doula, in the hope that I can both share the knowledge that I have gained along the way, and help the women in my care to feel more confident, more empowered and less alone and unsure as they prepare to meet their baby; or during the days and weeks that follow as they learn to care for the new, and most important, person in their life. If mum wishes to breastfeed, I am also happy to offer my services as a trained breastfeeding peer supporter in addition to the six years experience I have of breastfeeding my own demanding brood. My Philosophy: I would like to support mums (and dads) to be able to have the birth that they would like, where possible, and to be able to give them the information they need to be able to make choices along the way if things should need to change. I feel that it is important for mums to feel comfortable and ‘listened to’ while they labour, to have their needs met and their fears respected.
