My name is Dawn and I am a mentored Doula, Reiki Practitioner and Essential Oils enthusiast! I believe that every birth is unique and I am here to support you along your birthing journey, whatever path you may choose. I believe that every woman has a right to make informed choices throughout her pregnancy and birth and I am here to support that to my best ability.
I live in March with my husband and 4 children aged 16, 14, 12 and 6. I have always worked in a caring role starting with caring for the elderly, moving on to working as a dental nurse and then on to childcare and child development, which I have over 10 years’ experience in with a Level 3 Qualification. I have worked alongside families with various additional needs and disabilities, three of my own children are on the spectrum with sensory processing disorder, so I have extensive knowledge in this area. I have completed my Level 2 Qualification in Understanding Autism and have attended many training courses on Inclusion, Safeguarding and Pediatric first-aid.
During my time working with children I realised the importance of supporting mothers during pregnancy and the lack of support often offered, here my interest in birth work began.
I trained as a Doula in June 2018 and I am working towards completing my NCT Breastfeeding Peer Support training by December 2018. I also have trained in ‘Closing the bones’ technique and Consent, and will be attending other relevant courses as they are offered. I love learning new skills that I can pass on to support people around me, helping people to feel good is something that I adore.
I would be honoured to walk alongside you on your unique journey,
Give me a call, text or email 😊
