Cheshire based doula here to support you through pregnancy, birth and the early days with your new baby.
Antenatal, birth and postnatal support packages available.
My name is Donna, I am a Doula UK and Developing Doulas doula based near Northwich Cheshire. As a doula my role is to support the parents I work with through pregnancy, birth and the early days with their new baby to become resilient and confident.
This is very different for every family I work with but, in the early days with a new baby someone focused on the parents and their welfare can be beneficial. Offering time and space to reflect on the joys and challenges of their situation; helping them to identify solutions that work for them.
One of the advantages to having a range of skills is that I can offer new ways of looking at situations and offer strategies 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.
Do you feel like you like some more individualised support preparing for the birth of your baby?
I can help with bespoke birth and parenting preparation.
I can support you throughout your labour and the birth of your baby.
Offering support alongside any other birth partners and your healthcare providers.
As a postnatal doula I can provide both practical and emotional support to you to enable you to be the parent you want to be, supporting you and your family just when you need it.

What my clients say…
“Friendly, Practical and Fun. Donna was great, super flexible and just ‘gets it’’
“Would highly recommend Donna. I reached out to her from across the other side of the world a few days before I was due to be induced with my second baby. She is amazingly supportive and in tune with what mums and babies need. I really
like the fact that she backs all of her information up with evidence based practice. Donna is lovely, kind and reassuring. I couldn’t recommend her more, I just wish I lived closer!”
“We can’t thank you enough for all of your support leading up to her arrival. Keep being awesome!”
“Donna is such a warm and friendly person, really makes you feel at ease. She explained all about her training and you can see how passionate she is about what she does. The treatment was so relaxing. I really enjoyed it. Bonus that she left a bottle of the oil used with me. Smells amazing! Cannot recommend enough. Thanks again!”
“Such a relaxing experience, with time to talk and explore how I was feeling. It was so nice to have a rest and relax amongst life in newborn valley.”
Postnatal massage clients
“Donna is a great teacher and so supportive. We attended baby massage and her NCT classes. Her sessions are packed with great information and gave us the confidence to make informed decisions about our birth and baby. We recommend everyone having a Donna!”
“We have been lucky enough to have Donna as our NCT leader and baby massage teacher. The support we have received has been fantastic and, even during such an unprecedented time, we have never felt alone and always felt comfortable to reach out. We looked forward to our weekly zoom calls and have built a strong group of supporting parents from this too. We would highly recommend reaching out to Donna to guide and support you, during such a life changing moment in your life. Thank you, Donna.”
