What can I offer you as your doula...

Supporting you in birth

Default image

As your birth doula I am here to support and empower you on your journey to motherhood. My mission is to provide compassionate care, guidance, and advocacy that honors your unique needs and preferences, helping you to achieve the birth experience you desire.

Your birth experience is deeply personal, and having a well-prepared birth plan can help ensure that your preferences and wishes are honored and respected by your birthing team. As your doula, I will work closely with you to create a plan that reflects your values, priorities, and goals for birth. From choosing your birth environment to exploring pain management options, I will provide guidance, support, and advocacy to help you make informed decisions and feel empowered throughout. 

Breathwork is a powerful tool that can help you stay centered, focused, and calm during labor and birth. Through specific breathing techniques and practices, I can support you to connect with your body's innate wisdom and rhythm, giving you the confidence to navigate the intensity of labor.  During our time together we will practice breathwork techniques that promote relaxation, reduce tension, and support the natural progression of labor, allowing you to embrace the wildness of birth.

I believe that my role is not only to offer support and education but also to nurture you during your pregnancy, so I offer all my clients a soothing light touch massage treatment, using specially selected essential oils to reduce stress and promote relaxation, providing comfort and support in pregnancy and enhancing your birthing experience. 

We'll begin our journey with a discovery call to connect on a personal level, discuss your hopes, fears, and preferences for your birth. It's a chance for us both to ask questions, for you to share your birth vision and get to know me as your potential doula.

Whether you're planning a home birth, hospital birth, or birth center experience, I'm here to walk alongside you. 

“If a doula were a drug, it would be unethical not to use it.” – John H. Kennell, MD




As a postnatal doula, I am passionate about providing holistic support for new mums during the postpartum period.        My role encompasses a range of services designed to nurture both you and your baby, ensuring a smooth transition into motherhood.  I offer guidance in various breathwork techniques tailored to the needs of new mothers, to ease stress and promote a shift towards calm. Using simple co-regulation techniques, I empower you to navigate the ups and downs of early motherhood with confidence.  I provide valuable insights and education on understanding newborn behavior, establishing feeding and supporting you to develop a deeper understanding of your baby's needs. 

Making you a fresh cup of tea and preparing you a freshly made bed to retreat towards is all part of my care. I also offer nurturing light touch massage using specially selected essential oils to promote relaxation, and facilitate the body's natural healing processes, restoring balance to both body and mind.

Over night support, up to two nights a week or on an adhoc basis is also available, should you need to catch up on sleep.

In essence, my role as a postnatal doula is to provide unwavering support, guidance, and nurturing care as you embark on the incredible journey of motherhood. For as long as you need, I can be by your side, offering a warm, understanding and non-judgemental listening ear, guiding you into those early days of parenthood, giving you time to heal, to bond and cherish those first few weeks and months. 


“Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers… strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.” -

"After my birth circumstances changed we approached Claire to be our doula. We had previously experienced a loss and a traumatic experience postnatally, so I was carrying a huge amount of fear into this birth. 

Claire listened without judgement and signposted me to get further support via someone she knew that did the three step rewind programme.  During our birth she was empathetic, kind and also gave me the encouragement I needed at times when I felt I couldn’t continue. She said and did exactly what I needed, when I needed it without me asking.”
