Hi, I’m Nat.
I am a devoted birth and postnatal doula, passionate about supporting birthing people to be informed and empowered during their journey through pregnancy and beyond. I am blessed to be a birth worker that had the support of a doula during my own pregnancy and birth. This experience is partly what drives my passion for working with birthing people. I wish for all new parents to have the opportunity to be nurtured and supported to make informed choices during this time- as well as having a birth experience that is both magical and empowering, however that may look for them. I have witnessed firsthand how having autonomy during your birth experience can create real life magic! Whether that be in your own bathtub at home, in a birth centre or in hospital.
In between working with clients I’m busy chasing after my free range 2 year old with my husband. We have big plans to make our little allotment thrive this year now we have finally found our feet as parents ourselves.
When I do have a moment to myself (which is rare these days!) I love to cosy up in front of our wood burner with a cup of tea and a stack of chocolate biscuits.
As a birth worker I am calm, gentle and adaptable. I adore what I do, joining parents on this incredible and deeply personal journey is nothing short of an honour. As your doula I will hold space for you, providing that much needed safe space to unpick any fears or beliefs that might get in the way of your having the birth of your dreams. The birth you deserve! Together we will build your toolkit of resources for navigating the maternity system, birth and beyond, and build your community ready for the arrival of your beautiful baby. It really does take a village!
