About me

I am a birth doula located in Bristol. I am available for full birth packages but also offer stand alone antenatal and postnatal sessions online and in person. I particularly find myself supporting women emotionally, in preparation for birth, as well as debriefing, processing and celebrating what happened during birth and pregnancy. I also help women to involve their faith in the journey if relevant 😊

I attended a Pregnancy & Postpartum retreat run by Helena, and had a birth afterthoughts session with her to help me process a traumatic birth experience. All 3 of these experiences were really helpful in my journey to and into motherhood. Helena guides you through each session in such a calm and God centred way. She helped me to find ways to bring God into my pregnancy and labour, and really helped me to process my birth experience and offer it to God. I would really recommend her to expecting and new Mums!
