It’s 2021 and the world has changed…

The good news is that whatever Tier or lockdown scenario we find ourselves in, I am still here, able and willing to support you.

In most cases face to face support is still possible but there is an increasing body of anecdotal evidence that digital or distance doula support is as effective and transformative as face to face.

It’s likely that my support will be provided in a combination of ways. I am flexible, adaptable and responsive to your needs in any circumstance, whilst maintaining good Covid-19 protection protocols.

With my support you will develop your own clear idea of your birth preferences and how they might apply to different birth scenarios, but most importantly you will be able to approach your birth fearlessly and positively.  You will benefit from a confidence and surety in your ability to birth and care for your baby in whatever circumstance.

I support families all around Cheshire and neighbouring counties. I have birth and post-natal support availability for most of 2021.

The Smile Group

❤️UPDATE DURING CORONAVIRUS While our groups and home visits are unable to run, we are here for you in other ways.

Sue & Bronya are offering to call, text or provide email support during group hours for anyone in Cheshire East who engages with our face-to-face services. Any new mums self referring or being referred by a health care professional will just need to register with us via email before we can provide assistance, as would be the case if you came to group for the first time.

It is so reassuring to hear a friendly voice on the end of a phone and to have support from someone who understands what you are going through, especially given the current circumstances. We would like to remind you that you’re not alone and that we are here.❤️


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 in Macclesfield, Congleton and Sandbach.



This information is correct at the Tim epos publication but please do check before you attend as it changes periodically.
