About Me

My photo
Rugby, Warwickshire, United Kingdom
I am a mother of five children, four daughters all born in hospital (two now grown up!) and my son, born at home. One thing I know is that I would have had much more positive birth experiences if I had been well informed and well supported. Many women are feeling the same way and are seeking out the extra care a Doula can give them. I have been a Birth and Postnatal Doula for several years now, and am also a Lamaze Childbirth Educator providing 1-1 classes in antenatal preparation and baby care. I have special classes to help parents prepare for twins, homebirth, waterbirth, and parenting a new baby/babies. I am also a qualified antenatal teacher with the NCT and facilitate group classes in the Rugby/Coventry area. As a single mother I have an affinity with the special challenges of one parent families, or families where one partner is unavailable much of the time to offer support.

*** Waterbirth Photo Competition ***

Twin Mama Jade has entered a lovely birthing photo into a waterbirth photo competition. The photo was taken moments after baby Bodhi had been born into his mothers arms, and his twin sister, Maya was still in the womb. Maya had been in the breech position until Bodhi had birthed leaving her room to manouver and birthed head down 18 minutes after Bodhi made his way into the world. In the picture you can see Maya getting into position to birth.

Jade had a beautiful natural home waterbirth for her twins, and will be writing her blog all about it when she has some time, at the moment she is enjoying her babymoon!
