Who am I?
I am Lucy! Hi, nice to meet you! I am a birth and postnatal doula (qualified with Nurturing Birth),a relationships and sex educator (qualified with ACET UK) as well as a dance and choreography student. All of these aspects of my work give me a unique skill set that I carry across all my work!
As your doula, I strive to follow your lead and empower you to make your own decisions and have those decisions heard by the team supporting you. I support all births whether that is a vaginal birth at home with no medication to a planned caesarean with all the medication in a hospital setting. Your birth is your own!

Read on to hear a bit about my services!
My Services - Full Spectrum Doula
As your birth doula, my primary purpose is to provide practical, emotional and informational support in the lead up and during your birth.
In my packages, I usually offer weekly antenatal sessions (online or in person), attend your birth including the lead up (whatever your birth may be ie hospital, home, caesarean, water etc) and then a follow up session to debrief and discuss your experiences.
As your postnatal doula I will offer practical, emotional and informational support after your baby has arrived! For me, this can include, debriefing your experiences, sign posting for additional help or support for you, your baby or partner. Everyone needs support and self care in different ways so I can adapt to you and have a more hands on approach if that suits you like watching baby while you have a bath, helping you with household tasks or assisting in running errands or attending appointments. Everything is open to conversation and clear boundaries are set between my clients and I.
If you'd prefer to keep the extent of your support from a distance, I offer virtual doula support via email, text, phone or video call. This can be antenatally, during your birth and postnatally. This is an ideal form of support during he coronavirus pandemic.
Baby Loss Support
I also am available to support terminations, miscarriages' or any form of baby loss. I am hear to support every birth, including yours. This support can be followed up postnatally as well so that you can have your mental, emotional and physical health supported and receive any necessary signposts for additional support.
