About me

I’m Bea, a birth and postnatal doula based in Tunbridge Wells where I live with my husband and two children. That every woman deserves to experience a birth that empowers them, makes them proud of their body and confident as a mother – to have a positive birth story whether that’s an elective caesarean or a drug free water birth at home, whether it goes to plan or not you can come away with memories to cherish if you are informed, heard and validated. Those precious early days and weeks, the fourth trimester, are moments to be treasured – you need support to create and protect that newborn bubble, to ease the transition to new motherhood (the first, second, third or fourth time) and make the most of that special time.
