Hi! Welcome to my Doula page.

I’m Poppy: mother, Doula and passionate birth educator. I hope that as you read through my profile you get a sense of who I am and if I am the right person to support you on this incredible and transformational journey. 

 

I often am told that my passion for birth is contagious and my clients always leave my birth prep sessions feeling pumped and ready for birth. So if that’s how you’d like to feel then I may well be able to help you.

My approach

Everyone will have their own unique approach and birthing philosophy, and in my view, it's really important you choose someone whose approach feels right to you. I will help you work with the sensations of labour and lean into the intensity. I stay clear of ‘coping’ strategies because they almost always stop working effectively when labour ramps up. So a key part of my approach is surrendering to the power of birth and melting into it, becoming the energy of birth. I seek to do this through using a physiological technique called reframing: where we look to view the pain sensation as a healthy, functioning sensation that is going to bring your baby into this world. You are not sick or injured and don’t need saving. What you need is people to hold the space for you to work through the physiological sensations of labour and this is what I will do for you. 

How I can help you: 

If we work together I will teach you and your birth partner practical tools and techniques to take charge of your labour experience, from breathing and visualisation through to active birthing techniques. You will leave with a complete birthing tool-box that you feel ready and excited to use. 

I’m honoured to have supported hundreds of parents now to get mentally, physically and emotionally prepared for birth.  I absolutely love what I do and the feedback has been phenomenal. 

“My birth was positive, powerful and life-changing. I will recommend your work and Hypnobirthing to the bitter end”

“Poppy took us on a truly empowering journey so expertly and effortlessly. We came out the other end feeling closer to each other and looking forward to our birth experience” 

If you choose to work with me you will have someone who is:

  • Passionate and devoted

  • Respectful and emotionally intelligent

  • Warm, caring and encouraging
     

You already know how to give birth and so my role is to ensure you feel supported, heard and cared for throughout your experience. 

If you’d like to know more about my Doula packages then simply send me an email and I’ll get back to you right away. 

Best wishes,

Poppy
