practical and emotional support to the whole family.'

Doula, Uk

Birth is uniquely transformative- I firmly believe that all women and families deserve this to be a positive and empowering experience, however it might unfold. My role as your doula is to truly be on your side and by your side- ensuring your voice is heard and respected during pregnancy and birth. I have a special interest and strong experience in VBAC (Vaginal Birth After Caesarean)  and supporting those who are neurodivergent.

 

Before Birth

 

I offer a listening ear and judgement-free space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, hopes, wishes, and previous experiences. I have a keen eye for detail and I am skilled at 'connecting the dots'. I use this detail-oriented approach to assist you in decision-making, by providing you with relevant evidence-based information and guiding you through your options, choices and rights- as well as gently exploring possible alternatives. I will stand firmly alongside you, using my solution focused approach to help you navigate the complexities and challenges of the maternity landscape, ensuring your voice is heard and respected.  

 

During Birth 

 

Throughout labour, I will provide continuous emotional and practical support. I will hold space, being attuned and responsive to your individual needs. I will adeptly guide you through breathing techniques, affirmations, massage, visualisation, and various labour and birth positions and techniques, whilst maintaining an optimal birth environment. I will support the birth partner, helping them find their unique and critical role during labour.  I will work collaboratively with your care providers, continually communicating birth wishes and fiercely advocating for your autonomy.  

 

After Birth

 

Once your new baby arrives, I will remain by your side until you feel settled, offering support with feeding and providing information on self-care and newborn care

Hi, I'm Lizzy

I live in Malvern with my Husband Martin and our three children Alice, Ted and Sidney. 

 

Having transitioned from a successful career as a policy advisor within the civil service, I bring a proactive, assertive and driven approach to my doula practice. My friends would describe me as quietly confident, determined and compassionate.

 

​I became pretty obsessed with all the things pregnancy, birth and beyond during my first pregnancy in 2016- though it took a long time to step into this calling of supporting women and families on this transformative journey.

 

​I took my first tentative steps by training as a breastfeeding peer supporter, first with Worcestershire Acute Hospitals in 2018 and more recently with ABM in 2022.

 

​I am a trained hypnobirthing practitioner, training with KG Hypnobirthing and upskilling with Love Your Birth- both in 2023.

 

​I am currently completing my doula training with NCT and Worcester University- the only university accredited doula course in the country. ​​​​​​​​
