My aim is to support families in whatever way they need, filling the gaps in their lives so that they can find their way as parents. It really is very different for every family I work with, but in those early days with a new baby someone focused on the parents and their welfare can be really beneficial.
I share the skills and knowledge I have in all sorts of ways, I still volunteer at my local breastfeeding support group and provide sling support in the community, run a local pregnancy, parent and baby group, facilitate infant massage courses, and NCT Essentials and Early Days courses.
I really enjoy the group sessions I run in the community (baby massage, bumps and baby groups, postnatal groups) and I also offer baby massage, baby carrying consultations, rewind technique and closing the bones as one to one sessions.
Take a look at the links to the right where you can find details of all the services I offer.
One of the advantages to having a range of skills is that I can offer new ways of looking at a situation and tools for families to use. If you book with me as a doula, my other services are all available to you as part of the package, if you book a different service with me you have access to my skills and knowledge.
My role is different for every person or family I support, but a key component of the services I offer is nurturing support in a time that can be challenging for many.
