Because birth matters so much, and your work is very needed.
Established doulas, I love working with you – and constantly challenging myself to think and work through the challenges that face us all. For you, I offer study days around the UK that are focused on practical tools for challenging times.
Perhaps most importantly, I offer healing for doulas (and others) who work with birthing women and families to support you in staying clear and powerful in your work. Contact me to learn more.
Aspiring doulas, your time is now! We need you to join us in making a difference to birth. Locally, I offer regular low-cost workshops on ‘becoming a doula’ where you can have your questions answered and find out what it is really like.
Healing your own birth experiences is an essential pre-requisite to working effectively with birthing women and families – you can learn more here about Birth Story Healing and Womb Clearing & Healing sessions, powerful and effective ways of moving forward on your journey.
Doulas (and doulas-to-be!) you are some of my absolute most favourite people on the planet. <3 <3 <3
I know how hard our work can be sometimes – of course there are those beautiful, simple, and oh-so-rewarding times too! – but sometimes being a doula is just plain hard work. Whether it’s the struggle to get clients, the conflicts amongst peers, or those really difficult births where you see things or experience things you really wish you hadn’t.
I want to make it easier for you where I can, because the work you are doing is too important to let you get burnt out or lost in those difficult times. I know how difficult they can be. I have experienced it myself. But I’ve walked away from those times with a new set of resources and tools for thriving in my work, and a renewed strength and sense of personal power. I want to share it all with you.
My free resources are a starting point – please use them…and let me know what other resources you’d like to see in future. I’m always looking for new inspiration!
Of course, first and foremost I want to share with you the FREE healing sesssions I offer. Even if you’ve never done anything like this before, consider joining us and give it a try.
Here are some of the most popular resources for doulas from my blog (there’s loads more, so do have a browse!):
Will having a doula kill the intimacy of birth? (I think you know the answer to that one!)
What to do when birth just happens… (BBA – being a doula in an unexpected unassisted birth)
Of course you are most welcome to share (with appropriate credit / links back please!) the free resources for parents as well.
I hope this visit will be the first of many and that you will find what you are looking for here.
Thank you for your passion and your work!
