Welcome! I’m so glad you’ve found me here!
I’m Lindsay, Doula, Birth Educator, Breastfeeding Specialist, Rebozo Instructor, Hypnobirthing Practitioner, and Feminist!
I live in Northamptonshire, East Midlands with my husband, our 3 free-spirited children and a sweet tabby cat! I work predominately in Northants but also in neighboring counties. Occasionally I am able to travel further. I am also available as a virtual doula and for remote breastfeeding support.
I love my work; supporting women and their families at such a vulnerable, intimate and special time of their lives.
I am passionate about normalizing birth and breastfeeding as a positive transformative experience.
Originally a singer, I fell in love with the world of birth, breastfeeding, and parenting when I was pregnant with my 1st daughter in 2010. By chance, I found out about doulas when I lived in Toronto & after my 1st daughter was born (with a doula) in 2011 I knew I had found my calling! I trained with DONA when she was almost a year and have been working as a Birth & Postnatal Doula for over 6 years now!
I am fortunate enough to have served women and their families in both Canada & England which has given me a wider perspective of birth models and the systems women birth in.
The women I have supported have been from all different backgrounds & cultures and have had varied reasons for seeking doula support but ultimately they have all wanted the same thing that I believe most women want: to be heard, to be held (not necessarily physically but emotionally) & to have someone who truly believes in them.
No birth is the same so over 6 years I have learnt so much and still have much more to learn I’m sure! Each birth and each woman teaches me something new!
The births of my own 3 children have all been so different and quite an evolution too; from a hospital induction to a healing home hypnobirth and finally my amazing freebirth.
If you are open minded to the idea that birth, for the most part, is a normal yet miraculous event, not a medical emergency that women and babies need saving from,
If you want to Birth in your power,
If you want to feel truly heard, supported and honoured as you journey through pregnancy, birth and motherhood
then get in touch with me to set up a time where we can meet for a cuppa and see if I’m the right doula to support you on your journey.
I hope this website answers many of the questions you may have but please send me a message or connect with me on social media (using the links at the top of the page)- I would love to chat with you!
I also invite you to check out my many articles, recipes and birth stories on my blog!
