Postnatal Doula Services
I offer educational sessions that wil prepare you for the arrival of baby. The sessions allow you to know what to expect and when to ask for help. I also provide personal postnatal doula services to support and empower you on your journey to motherhood.
Personal Postnatal Doula Service
Most mums find that no matter how much they have planned and prepared themselves for baby’s arrival there will always be times they need some sort of help, particularly once partners have returned to work, and it is just you and baby at home. My Personal Postnatal Doula service is available in bronze, silver or gold packages depending on your needs and budget. We will meet prior to your birth date to discuss the service but you can use the time however you wish, up to a maximum of 3 hours per day either every day, a few times a week or once a week, to maximise the help and support I can give to you and your family.
The type of things I can help you with are personal admin and paperwork such as registering the birth, going shopping for you, helping you to prepare batch cooking for freezing, watching baby while you take a nap or a bath, going for a walk with you or simply offering words of encouragement over a cup of tea and being a shoulder to cry on while your hormones settle down.

.Bump & Me Time Sessions
These are two educational sessions recommended for you to attend during your third trimester. They give you a chance to find out what to expect once baby arrives both from your perspective and that of baby.
The topics covered during the two sessions are:
The Fourth Trimester – you know when you are pregnant and everyone keeps giving you that “knowing smile” and saying vague things such as “get sleep while you can” or “life will never be the same again”? Well if you want to know what life is really going to be like once baby arrives, join my workshop all about the Fourth Trimester. I will cover what the Fourth Trimester is, what to expect after birth, exercise, nutrition, mental health, perineum care and postnatal planning as well as family wellbeing as you all welcome new baby to your life.
Womb to World – what does the new world look like for your new baby? Imagine what it must feel like when you’ve been nice and cosy in the womb and then suddenly you are thrust out in to the world? Join my Womb to World workshop to find out about birth from baby’s perspective, the power of nurturing touch, new born skin care, feeding, sleep, jaundice, colic and reflux.
Each session is 1 hour either via Zoom or face to face (within a 25 mile radius of SK11 7UY) and include a workbook PDF emailed to you before each session begins. Sessions cost £15 each or £25 for both if booked at the same time. Partners are welcome to join you on the sessions
Womb to World Workshop
“I thought the zoom worked well in conjunction with the workbook and space for extra notes. Content was really useful so I would highly recommended. Sue was a good facilitator who I felt was friendly and approachable.” – Mum A
Fourth Trimester Workshop

As well as being a Postnatal Doula I am a fully trained and accredited Naming Celebrant allowing me to create and officiate a bespoke naming ceremony to introduce your baby to their family and friends. You might not want a traditional Church Christening but naming your child and showing your commitment to them for the rest of their lives is important so allow me to create a special ceremony that you can cherish the memory for years to come. After a free no obligation consultation, I will produce the words and rituals for the ceremony for us to discuss and agree. On the day I will attend whatever venue you choose to hold the ceremony, brief anyone involved and officiate, leaving shortly after the ceremony to allow you, family and friends to continue celebrating.
A Naming Ceremony costs from £300
