Antenatal doula service in Cornwall...

Cornwall doula support...

"Alice made both my husband and I feel totally at ease and with her positive support I was able to prepare for the birth with confidence" Abigail, Helston

A doula is an experienced, knowledgeable guide chosen by you, who offers emotional and practical support, antenatal education, preparation and neutral guidance. Although it's an unregulated field, I chose to become certified via a Doula UK accredited training provider (2006), and completed the Doula UK 'recognition process' (2011).

I've been a doula for 13 years, and a trainee midwife for just over two years prior to that. My 'baby-catching' days were an invaluable insight into NHS maternity care (about me)

My approach...

I love empowering you to welcome your baby into the world positively ~ it's such an honour to be a part of your journey! My practice is woman-centred and evidence-based. I aim to inform and support you both to become more confident, however you give birth.

My antenatal-only doula service...

Excellent preparation is the key to a positive birth, no matter how your baby arrives. I work with you 
and your chosen birth partner extensively during pregnancy. I typically visit for 10-12 hours of personalised antenatal classes and support, as required (£25 per hour). We fully explore the birth process, comfort tools (including hypnobirthing), your choices, options, feeding, adapting to postnatal life and more. Subsequently, by the time of the birth, my families are very well prepared and relaxed.

the people say, "amazing:
we did it, all by ourselves!" (Tao Te Ching)
