Hi, I'm Sara, a mentored postnatal doula, living in Guildford Surrey. I am a mum of 2 (a daughter born Oct 2017 and expecting a son in Oct 2020). Having my daughter 2.5 years ago was life changing for me and the reason I decided to train as a doula. I feel passionate about mother's wellbeing and supporting women in one of the most pivotal times of their life.
I found my 1st pregnancy very overwhelming and due to variety of complications also partly traumatic. It took me a long time to find my feet as a mother and feel comfortable in my new role, a transformation i never really expected to be so hard. Hence I am now more than overjoyed to be able to support mothers to be and new mothers to find their feet in the crazy world of motherhood.
I believe you become a mother even before you even conceive. It's all the little things you start making to prepare for a new life. Every mum, no matter where they are on their journey, deserves to be celebrated and supported in ways they feel comfortable.
Though I'm currently offering services only as a postnatal doula, I understand from my own experience that pregnancy can be a whirlwind and overwhelming experience. Therefore i also offer support for anyone who needs support during pregnancy and preparing for the birth of their baby.
I believe in empowering women through researched and evidence based information, so they feel informed and confident in their decisions on how to birth and care for their baby.
