Becoming a parent is an amazing, life-changing experience! And yet, it can be overwhelming too. I would be happy to be at your side and empower you in this transition to motherhood/parenthood.
I am a mother to 2 young children, a boy born in 2013 and a girl born in 2016. I became passionate about helping mothers and families after having my first child, when I realised how little support was available for us, new parents.
If you are looking for a trustful, serious, organised, friendly and non-judgmental person for emotional and practical support, I would be more than happy to nurture your family and to accompany you in your transition to motherhood/parenthood. I will assist you in defining what works best for you, raise your confidence in your parenting skills, and provide some logistical support while you focus on getting to know your baby and get some rest. In short, I am here to take care of you and help you be the parent(s) you want to be.

Postnatal moral and practical support in your home
Hiring a postnatal doula can be the best gift you make to yourself, your family or a friend. Having a compassionate, non-judgmental and knowledgeable person to look after you and your family can be a huge relief in your first weeks with your baby.
As a postnatal doula, I will offer you an active listening and a reassuring environment to ask your questions and discharge. I will help you with practical daily organisational aspects of your new life with a baby, including feeding support, bath, sleep, first outings… I will give you the space to recharge and recover by taking care of light housekeeping and childcare for the baby or older siblings. I will point you to the latest evidence-based information about parenthood and baby development to help you step into your new role with confidence.
As a postnatal doula, I will support your family in a unique way. And this can make a huge difference to your journey into parenthood.
I usually make myself available for a defined number of hours (packages from 20 to 40 hours), on a flexible basis spread over an agreed number of weeks. All packages include a basic level of phone, text and email support that can prove very useful for any questions or need for reassurance you may have in between visits. If you book ahead of the birth, you would be able to benefit from a postnatal planning session.
Do you have questions? Do you need further information? Would you like to know more about me and how I can support you? Reach out – I’ll be happy to get in touch!
