“Find your Mr/s Doula right.

Every doula like every person looking for a doula has a unique personality and skill set. I could tell you I’m the best, but if we don’t get on, you won’t benefit from the support I can offer.  The only way to find out if I’m the doula for you and your specific, unique journey to parenthood is to talk to me. There is an amount of getting to know each other to do, before you can ultimately decide whether I’m your Doula right or someone else equally gorgeous is.

My intention as your doula is to help you get the information you need to enable you to develop your own clear and informed idea of your birth preferences and how they might apply to different birth scenarios, as well as supporting you emotionally and physically throughout your labour and birth.

I want you to feel fully informed, strong, positive, fearless, confident, and loved as you begin one of the most challenging phases of your life. We’ll also consider your post-natal recovery plan, and if you hire me as your post-natal doula, as well as or instead of as your birth doula, I will be there to support your sumptuous, healing fourth trimester.

Don’t leave it a moment longer, give me a call”

The Smile Group

The SMILE Group was co-founded by Natalie Nuttall and Ruth Eglin in 2011 after they both experienced PND and felt passionate about the need for parents to benefit from sustained peer support at a local level.

When we set The SMILE Group up we wanted it to be a place where families can relax and not feel judged or intimidated in any way. The group is a drop-in format and there is no pressure to attend regularly.

We invite parents to chat, drink tea and there is always a welcoming smile and an open door. We also enable mums and dads to indulge in valuable ‘me’ time with sample complementary therapy treatments to bring a sense of wellbeing.

See the Smile Group’s website for information on the weekly meet ups.
