Mentored Postnatal Doula: Hello, I'm Jessie.
Congratulations on your pregnancy and thank you for being here. It is my honour to support and nurture families in the postnatal period.
Giving birth and welcoming a precious soul to the world is a life-changing rite of passage which is often undervalued by the modern pressure of "getting back to normal" at a time when gently feeling into this new normal and finding your way is so important.
I understand how to support and nurture through this transition, offering the compassion, sensitivity and respect it deserves - as well as the practical skills needed. My job as your doula is very bespoke to you; I will listen to you completely, taking time to learn about you, your stories and preferences and hear what you need and want. This way, I can fully support you and your unique family, helping you and your baby to have the best start possible.
I love to use ritual, massage, aromatherapy, herbs and nourishing food to help heal the body, mind and spirit. I love to cook and bake too. When I'm at home alone, I can usually can be found in the kitchen with pans bubbling around me - or in the garden tending to herbs and veggies with love.
I lead from my heart and my intuition. This - alongside your valued needs and wishes - is at the core of my role as your doula. If you would like to discuss how I can be of service to you, I would love to hear from you.
