Let's start a journey

together

The thing you have with a doula is an advocate, a friend, a walking/talking birth geek and someone that feels as passionately about your experience as you do.   

We’ll have at least two antenatal meetings before hand to discuss your birth wishes and any worries. I then become someone who not only supports you, but can help to empower your & your partner to ask questions and push for your wishes to be adhered to - many say we act as the middle (wo)man between medical support and couples. We are not just for home births, or water births or even natural births. In fact I am happy to prepare you for and attend caesarean births, induced births and VBACs too...... whether you are high risk, low risk, planning a vaginal birth, vbac, caesarean.  

My goal is for you to have a positive birth experience as you define it.

 I am devoted to proving that knowing what you want from your birth & having a doula does not make you a ‘hippy dippy’ or demanding, but actually an educated, knowledgeable woman.

I was inspired to become a doula after so many of my hypnobirthing couples asked me if I could attend the birth of their baby, and I wanted to be able to say YES! I've also trained to support families with loss & rainbow babies via the infant lost foundation.

My experience is across births under both NHS & private caregivers throughout London & Surrey including The Portland, Lindo Wing & Kensington Wing. I’ve supported women to successfully have home births to planned caesareans, these mothers are from all walks of life including celebrities, journalists & influencers. I have been featured & recommended by many media outlets, including the Evening Standard.

My birth doula support is currently offered alongside my partner Zoe as a shared care package, which means you get the support & knowledge of two doulas throughout your pregnancy and a guarantee someone you know will be there for you in labour.

 

We know many tips & tricks that can help prepare you for & support you throughout your labour. From simple comfort measures & making sure you are eating/ drinking, to recommending & helping you into positions, timing contractions, calling the midwife to driving you to hospital. Most of all  women find that just having someone next to them who has seen it, been through it and understands how birth unfolds is so wonderfully reassuring.  Sadly in many circumstances continuity of care isn't available, this is what a doula can offer you. 

If you're pregnant & you want to understand what your options are, if you want to feel confident and surrounded by love when you go into labour, if you want to write your own story then get in touch. Your 'birth day' is the most memorable day of your life, so prepare for it.

How I support my clients

The passion and love she has for birth is evident from the first conversation,  She wasn't just supportive towards me even my husband said he couldn't imagine doing it without her there either.

She gave him the support he needed to be there for me and her reassuring present during my pregnancy and labour really was 'walking beside me' throughout the whole journey. Everyone needs a Jemma in their life!

As soon as James and I met Jemma we loved her and felt so much more at ease and confident about bringing our baby into the world. She completely changed our perspective on birth. We loved her straight taking but reassuring approach and enjoyed our private classes with her in the lead up to the birth. We also made the decision to have her there with us on the day. We couldn't reccomend Jemma enough and have very fond memories of our time together and the incredible support she gave our little family

Jemma was a great help on my journey, which I was embarking on alone. I found her to be a good emotional sounding board & I believe she'd be a huge help to any new mother - she is a true professional, very knowledgeable, flexible and great comfort when you’re having a wobble.

She’s someone you can trust entirely to support you with the best thing for you. Olive and I are lucky to of had Jemma join us on our exciting adventure and would recommend her to any new parent as they enter this chapter in their lives.
