Why a Doula?

DOULA –  A person who is trained to give practical and emotional support and information before, during, and after birth. From the Greek meaning Servant of a woman.

Hello, and welcome to my site. Being here, reading this means you have already decided that you deserve more, more support, more information, more care. I’m here to provide you with all of those things.

If you’re still not sure if a Doula is something you need, or if you are wondering why you should pay for what a Doula offers, let me say that too often Pregnancy and birth are thought of too little. We put lots of thought into which house to buy, what our wedding will be like, but our Birth experiences do not get that same care and attention. When in reality they can change your life so much.

Doula’s provide you with the support you need to make your own choices, and to feel confident about those choices. We hold space for you so you can become empowered by your own choices. We provide practical support and comfort during those difficult days. Simply put, we support you in anyway you need.



So hello, I’m Melanie, Yorkshire girl and mum of 4 children, Each of my pregnancies and births have been different, and have provided me with insights into the different routes Pregnancy, birth and even motherhood can take.

I am a Nurturing Birth Doula, and completed my training with them in 2020.

I hope I can be the support you need to help empower you to make whatever choices are right for you.

I’m here to support you and your family through Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond.
