Hello, my name is Laura and I am a Doula.
Congratulations on your pregnancy! This is an exciting time, and it’s great that you are thinking about having a Doula to support you during your pregnancy, birth, and/or postnatally.
Childbirth (and all that comes with it) is an amazing time and brings a unique mix of emotions. I believe that pregnant and postnatal women benefit from lots of time, space, strength, courage and love to navigate their way through these many different feelings.
AVAILABLE 24/7 FOR YOU
6+ YEARS EXPERIENCE IN MATERNITY
4 YEAR PHD IN MIDWIFERY
WHY CHOOSE ME?
I feel that every woman should experience giving birth in a way that they are fully comfortable with, and that they have a good understanding of the different options for their birth. As your Doula I whole-heartedly support you in whichever direction your journey takes you, and provide you with non-judgmental, comprehensive information so that you have all of the tools necessary to make choices towards your best possible birth and beyond. I can also provide continuity of support throughout your pregnancy, birth and postnatally.
Alongside my Doula training, I also have a PhD in Nursing and Midwifery, and I have worked in Maternity Research for the past 6 years. During this time I have attended a number of births, and have supported women both during birth and in the postnatal period. This allows me to support to women in a unique way, as I can provide the most up-to-date information in maternity, give added insight into the workings of the UK maternity system, and support women in whichever path they decide to follow.
