“If a woman doesn’t look like a Goddess during labour, then someone isn’t treating her right.”
Ina May Gaskin
Birth And Postnatal Doula Based In BuckinghamshireMy name is Sophie and I am a mentored Birth and Postnatal Doula in Buckinghamshire. I will support every mother/ family with calm positivity, helping you feel nurtured, empowered and listened to throughout your pregnancy and labour. 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. Supporting you in your new role I will listen with a gentle, non-judgemental ear over a cup of tea, cook a meal, hold a baby…or hold a Mummy as I know the postnatal period can sometimes feel overwhelming. I’m also a Norland Nanny with 26 years experience and have worked with many families from birth. In these current, challenging times it has been necessary to adapt the ways in which I can support mothers and families. I have resumed in person Postnatal support for families whilst Antenatal sessions can be in person or done using Skype, Zoom or FaceTime. 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. 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.
