“If a woman doesn’t look like a Goddess during labour, then someone isn’t treating her right.”

Birth And Postnatal Doula Based In Buckinghamshire

My name is Sophie and I am a mentored Birth and Postnatal Doula living in Buckinghamshire.I also cover some of Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Hertfordshire. My commitment is to  support every mother/ family with calm positivity, helping you feel nurtured, empowered and listened to throughout your pregnancy and labour. Wherever you chose to birth your baby I can help signpost you to information as we build our relationship. As a Postnatal Doula I will help you in those first days and weeks of parenthood to find your feet and to grow in confidence.  In these current, challenging times I am doing in person Postnatal support for families whilst Antenatal sessions can be in person or done using Skype, Zoom or FaceTime. In early labour I can support you at home. I have had my first Covid vaccination and am eagerly awaiting the second. Babies will still be born during this time and women need to know that, should they wish it, doula support is still available.  Each hospital trust I work with may have slightly different policies surrounding birth partners and this is still changing. Constant support during labour and birth whilst in hospital can be provided on Skype, Zoom or FaceTime if necessary. Homebirths are still an option in all the trusts and can offer more flexibility on the  number of birth partners.  If you need help navigating your way through this I will be happy to assist you. I’m also a Norland Nanny with 26 years experience and have worked with many families from birth. I offer payment plans if that makes getting the support you need more accessible. Please get in touch and let me know how I can help you. An initial phone chat is free.
