My name is Lorna, I’m the Founder of Birmingham Doula and Live & Learn Homestays. I am mom to 2 children born in 1989 and 1993. I had 2 very different births and, single-handedly raised 2 amazingly wonderful young people. I am easy to get along with, practical, organised and a good listener.
Parents tell me that I bring a special calmness and warmth to their births; I can also bring a wealth of experience to support you and your family through the tricky days and weeks of early parenting. I strongly believe that every birthing mother should have access to a nurturing doula. This is such a special time and, as a doula, I feel honoured to be able to share these precious moments with you and your partner/family.
When we meet for the first time I will listen to you and do my utmost to understand your needs and we’ll decide, together, how best I can support you. I am on hand to support you with your birthing choices and will do all that I can to ensure that your experience is a positive one; it’s your birthing experience and I can be as hands on or hands off as suits you and your situation.
I can provide emotional and practical support once baby has arrived; I will support you with your feeding choice and help to create some space/time for yourself so that you’re not too frazzled!
