Global Birth Support


Individual support for you and your family troughout your pregnancy, birth and postnatal period.


Having lived as an expat myself for over 8 years, I understand what it is like to be living far a way from your family during the ups and downs of life, when you would need their support and help the most. Many times those closest to us would love to be there, but life's demands simply won't allow it.


The Global Birth Support is your ultimate 'pick-and-mix' all-inclusive service.


Planning the biggest and most important day of your life, only you know what you really need to feel supported, more calm and relaxed about your approaching birth.


I’ll be there for you, to support you, help you find the information you need, be your advocate, hold the space, what ever you need me to be during your pregnancy, on the day and once your baby is born.

*Each Global Birth Support contract is individually made to fit your needs,

conditions may therefore differ from above. Please be in touch to talk about your individual circumstances.



What I do as a doula, the type of support I give you, always reflect the needs of your family. I offer continuous emotional, practical and informational support to you, your partner and your family during pregnancy, birth and the early days after birth. I will be by your side every step of the way, support you, ask you what it is that you truly want (when everyone seems to have a say what you should and shouldn’t be doing). I will help you find unbiased information so that you can make evidence based choices that are right for you and your baby.


During pregnancy

I can offer you practical help by getting the groceries, taking care of the school runs, or perhaps you'd like to practice some yoga or enjoy reflexology. What would make the biggest, most positive impact to your day?

That's what we'll do!


I will also teach you how to access all the emotional and physical tools you need to achieve the right birth for you. You and your partner will become experts in relaxation and learn valuable breathing techniques for labour, birth and every day life. You will learn how to become strong, confident parents who inherently trusts themselves, and, by using your natural instincts, make choices that are right for you and your family.


You might choose to give birth at home, hospital or a midwife led unit. Have a vaginal or caesarean birth. It is not how you give birth but how you feel about the birth that matters to me and that you had a positive birth experience.


During birth

you might ask me for a massage, to breathe with you, help you with different birth positions, look after your older children or even take the dog for a walk. As a doula, it is not about ‘doing’, it is about ‘being’ that matters, how I can best be there for you. How can I support you (and your partner) in this journey to a positive and empowering birth experience?

After the birth

I will tend to your needs and be there to give you unconditional support, a listening ear, and an extra pair of hands. I might be there to look after the baby and older children, so that you can have a moment to yourself, a nice relaxing undisturbed shower/bath, afternoon nap, or I might help you by making a nice nutritious meal. I also offer overnight support, giving you (and your partner) a chance for a good night’s sleep.

My role as a doula and the support I offer, always reflect your needs and those of your family.

*Payment plans are available to all Doula services if needed. Please keep in touch if this is something that would interest you and your family.*
