I have three wonderful children who are a constant source of laughter, fun and inspiration to me. My other loves in life are yoga, cooking, walking my Norfolk terrier in Richmond Park and pottery. My husband started his own fine wine business in London shortly after we were married and I was involved in the administration and finances for 28 years. It has been a fascinating job but now my children have flown the nest, got married and started their own families I felt the need to do something completely different. I have always had a desire to be a midwife but the wine business developed so quickly I had to put my dreams on hold. It is these dreams that encouraged me to commence my journey towards becoming a doula. I absolutely love doing what I do, helping parents when they need it most and being with them to welcome a new baby into the world. Complete job satisfaction, what more could you ask for.
I trained as a birth doula with Developing Doulas in London and am certified by Doula UK which is the largest network of Doulas in the UK. I abide by their strict code of philosophy and conduct. I was recognised as a Birth Doula in October 2017.
I am also a breastfeeding volunteer at Chelsea and Westminster so can help iron out any problems you may have following your birth.
