Doulas support families during pregnancy, birth and in their early weeks and months as a new family. The name doula originates from Greek ‘to serve’. We provide practical, emotional and informational support and aim for you to feel positive and empowered on your parenting journey.
Increasing evidence shows that the support of a doula leads to healthier and happier outcomes for families. Dr. John Kennell, a pioneering US pediatrician who championed mum and infant bonding said ‘If a doula were a drug it would be unethical not to use it’.
Doulas are growing in number in the UK as more people get to know about the wonderful benefits of having a doula.
