About Me

Hi, my name is Yvonne. 

Thank you for visiting my website.

I live in Woodford Green, East London.  I'm a married mother of 3. Prior to becoming a Doula I had worked as a healthcare practitioner within the NHS for over 10 years. So I'm fully aware of how the system works and how over medicalised things have become.

After experiencing my own childbirths as well as supporting friends and family through their personal childbirth and post partum journeys I realised that empowering women and their partners during this process ignited something within me.

I completed my training to become a Birth and Postnatal Doula with Kicki Hansard’s Birth Bliss Academy.  I am a registered member of Doula UK,  Abuela Doulas, and The Doula Association.  I have an enhanced DBS and I am fully insured.

To provide support and share the joy as new parents are born is what fuels my soul as a Doula!

Doula Support

As a Doula I provide practical, emotional and informational support before, during and after the birth of your baby. I can help you navigate the maternity system, enabling you to make informed decisions when it comes to your choices.

Birth

My Birth package includes antenatal preparation, on call from 38 weeks, continuous support throughout your labour and birth,  and  a postnatal visit.

Postnatal

As your postnatal doula, my aim is to build your confidence in caring for yourself and your new family.

 

“My birthing experience as a first time mum was better than I could ever imagine. Not only did Yvonne support me regularly before my daughter was born with weekly check ins, quick responses to my never ending queries and review of my birth plan but she played a pivotal role throughout my labour.”
