Hi, I'm Louise
I love my job more than I can express in words. I've come to this vocation after spending 20 years in the corporate world and I have to say it's the best decision I ever made.
Having had three very different births; from unplanned C-section at 29 weeks, to the calmest physiological birth you could imagine, I realised that being truly supported and fully informed is paramount. As your doula it is my job to ensure that during your birthing experience you feel, in control, knowledgeable, calm, confident and empowered.
I did my doula training with the lovely Kicki Hansard at the BirthBliss Academy and subsequently enhanced my skillset at the Katherine Graves home of Hypnobirthing where I trained as a hypnobirthing instructor. I have also completed a course to help with previous birth trauma adjustment. As well as aromatherapy and massage technique for childbirth
You can find out lots more about me on my website, but in essence; I'm definitely the most mature doula of our team!! I'm told I have a calming influence, I'm supportive, intuitive, nurturing, thoughtful and kind. Oh, and crazy organised, corporate life will do that to a girl!!
I have 3 lovely boys who I'm very proud of; Cameron ('90), Charlie ('03) and Freddy ('05). I currently live with the youngest two in Sandhurst on the Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire borders, but also cover London.
