I am passionate about supporting women and couples through pregnancy, birth and infancy. Women who have prepared for birth tend to have more empowering experiences when birthing, and a perfect start to bonding. Ienjoy meeting women during their pregnancy and then seeing them return to baby massage with their babies!
In the shift from care in the community to care in hospital some of our wise woman skills have been forgotten, I am particularly interested in reclaiming some of these lost skills, like baby massage, birthing and breastfeeding.
I am a mother, and also work in Kent supporting children with Autism.
I provide small intimate classes in calm and relaxing setting, I am able to support women and attend to their individual needs throughout their pregnancy.
Active Birth Classes are a unique blend of antenatal information and gentle yoga, as developed by Janet Balaskas in the 1970’s.
Baby Massage classes are a mixture of massage and movement for babies aged 6 weeks to roughly 6 months.
Mother & Baby Yoga classes, mums earn gentle but effective postnatal yoga exercises and have a chance to meet other mums with babies of a similar age.
You’re not alone! Many women feel like they would like some extra support during pregnancy and birth. Doulas come from an age old traditional art going back centuries, offering continuous support pre and post birth.
Doulas are not medical practitioners. We are women experienced in childbirth who can visit during pregnancy, attend during the birth and help postnatally. Having a baby sometimes feels overwhelming!
Doulas can do anything which supports and helps the woman/family.
That little bit of kindness and back up that makes all the difference, and gives you time to catch your breath.
We’ve got your back! We can provide continuity of care and a familiar face where there may not be others. We can be a quiet and supportive presence during labour and birth protecting your space and helping you to assert your wishes.
We can help you protect your space and environment. Giving compassionate practical support and reassurance to you, your partners and family.
Post-natal visits can consist of breastfeeding help, light household tasks, bringing meals, anything which facilitates mum being with baby and the nurturing of the newly established family unit.
I’m Dawn. I’m mother of 3 and a fully qualified and insured Doula etc
