For expectant and new parents in
Newcastle and North Tyneside
On hand for you in pregnancy, during labour and birth and when your baby is here
With consistent, calm and professional birth support, which is usually alongside your birth partner, you can feel safe and reassured.
I don’t replace midwifery expertise, I provide emotional and physical support for you at the end of your pregnancy and throughout labour and birth.
As your exclusive doula I will:
- be on call from around 38 weeks
- with you from when you need me in early labour until your baby is born
- be on hand for questions and support at the end of your pregnancy
- with you during a homebirth or in hospital
- provide an end of pregnancy session with you for information, support and reassurance
- provide a postnatal visit to provide support in those early days
I work with parents in North Tyneside and Newcastle who are planning a homebirth or to use either the RVI or NSECH.
With additional support and reassurance during those first few hours, days and weeks with your baby, you can feel supported and reassured.
These home visits help you as you find your feet as a new parent, and can provide practical support with feeding, bathing and looking after your baby.
I provide daytime, evening and weekend sessions throughout the year.
You can book a one-off session or a series of three sessions for more ongoing support.
I work with parents across Newcastle and Tyneside.
“It made such a difference to have you with me throughout labour and birth – you reassured me, kept me calm and positive. And that’s why I want to book you again!”
“Thank you for keeping me going with your support and encouragement and helping me to have the strength to carry on.”
“You have a wealth of knowledge but you are also just so human and that connection made me feel safe and supported to trust my body and myself. “
“Seeing you when we brought our baby home really gave us a boost – we just needed someone to tell us it was all okay!”
“We really benefitted from some consistent support – someone to listen, to ask how we were doing and to answer our questions.”
Why doula care can make a difference to you
With skilled support and birth knowledge I have worked with a number of parents from early labour right through until they get settled after birth with their baby in their arms. Being with you throughout labour and birth I can provide consistent encouragement with contractions, help you to manage your energy, to use your breathing and to work with your midwife so you know more about your options.
With a calm, reassuring approach, I support new parents during the early hours, days and weeks with their baby. Coming to visit you in your home means you have time to ask questions, have practical support and feel more confident about finding what works with your baby.
As a practitioner, I am trusted to provide good information, based on evidence and experience, and to make you feel at ease.
Working with parents since 2002
