“A Doula enters the space of a labouring women and is highly responsive and aware of her needs, moods, changes and unspoken feelings. She has no need to control or smother, every pregnant woman should have the benefits of a Doula”

Siobhan was incredible throughout the whole process and I can not recommend her enough! She helped us navigate this process with the exact demeanour we were looking for. She gave us confidence and put our minds at ease before, during and post-birth. She’s got plenty of resources and contacts for anything you’re hoping to research to help you educate yourself to help you come to your own pathway - never pushes and doesn’t come with an agenda. Siobhan will always have a special part in my story!
