What is a Doula?

Originally a Greek word meaning ‘a woman’s servant during childbirth’.
These days it is commonly described as a woman who assists women during labor and after childbirth.

You are probably in a position that I found myself in 10 years ago.

Pregnant. Excited. Overwhelmed. Curious.

Ready to take on a whole new world! This site is to help you understand what a Doula is, who I am and what I can bring to your birth. Hopefully you will get inspired and get in touch so we can talk about how I can help you find confidence and achieve your dream birth.

Please also see my WOMEN’S CIRCLE I have started. All welcome.

I knew I wanted Julia to help me with the birth of my first baby during our initial meeting. Julia was relaxed, focused and informed; and this is the attitude she brought to the birthing room.
