I have been a Birth Doula to women having birth at home and in hospital, first child and second child.
In 2006 I had a hospital birth at Kingston Hospital with my first child. In 2008 I had a home water birth with my second child. I
had the same doula for both births.
I have my own experience with Hypnobirthing, Bowen Technique and acupuncture for inducing labour when overdue.
I have been an 'Outstanding' Ofsted Registered Childminder since May 2009 (useful for postnatal doula support if you have an older child.).
I am Co-Chair of the Kingston Maternity Voices Partnership (MVP), getting women's voices heard. https://www.facebook.com/KingstonMVP/
I volunteer with Kingston Home Birth, a community support group for parents interested in learning more about the option of a home birth.
I volunteer for the Kingston NCT, serving on their committee.
I was a volunteer with the Kingston and Merton Real Nappy Network.
