Pregnant women should not read books about pregnancy and birth. Their time is too precious.
They should, rather, watch the moon and sing to their babies in the wombMichel Odent

Postnatal Doula

My role as a postnatal doula is to “Mother the Mother” and to share skills that will help you and your partner, if you have one, to get more confident in looking after your baby. These may include, but are not limited to: basic breastfeeding support, how to identify your baby’s needs, looking after your baby, using a sling/pram,attending appointments with you and your baby, looking after yourselves-if you need sleep, time for self-care, food etc, Your emotional wellbeing is of utmost importance to looking after your baby and I will do what I can to ensure your emotional and physical wellbeing. I am happy to do anything that helps the smooth running of the household. I do a minimum of 3 hours per booking, am available to do overnight shifts too and I work with babies up to 3 months.
