Hello and welcome!
My name is Zara. I’m an experienced birth and postnatal doula living in Godalming with my wonderful husband and assorted animals.
My sons have flown the nest which means I am now in a position to offer dedicated support as a full time doula across Surrey.
The childbirth year is the start of the most amazing relationship you will ever have but can be enormously daunting. There is so much to take in, learn and decide upon, in addition to all the huge physical, emotional and hormonal changes going on.
This is where the right doula can make all the difference; offering practical, emotional, informational and social support, walking the journey with you as a guide and informed friend. Always supportive, non judgemental and on your side.
My aim above all else is to give you space to explore your options with confidence, ensuring you feel positive, happy and clear about them and your subsequent choices. Each and everyone of you are unique, your story and expectations different, therefore I need to be adaptable, level headed and open minded. Laughter is another essential ingredient!
I’m an ABM Breastfeeding Counselor, a Mindful Breastfeeding Practitioner, a Baby Wearing Peer Supporter and trained in the KG method of Hypnobirthing. I also give very wonderful massages! These additional skills form part of my doula packages along with heaps of other useful information that I share as your doula.
If you'd like to find out more please get in touch by email or phone. I'm always delighted to have an informal chat.
