More about my doula services here
During my time as a birth and postnatal doula I have supported many births and although I’m passionate about all births, VBACs (vaginal birth after caesarean) and positive birth experiences after previous traumatic births are the ones that make my heart really sing.
I don’t profess to be a ‘birth geek’, I’m told it’s my experience and reassuringly calm and confident nature that moms are drawn to.
“Lorna is unique, intelligent, smart, very responsive and empathetic woman. She is like guardian angel and her presence is calming and protective. I will never forget how much she helped me, and the special birth experience I had.”
First and fore-mostly, I’m a mom supporter; yes, babies are lovely and squidgy but when you’re pregnant or you’re a new mom, everyone is about the baby. I’m here just for YOU!
My motto is “happy mom, happy everyone”!
Oh by the way, you won’t see any information about my own birthing experiences here as what I do as a doula is about you, not about me. However, if you have questions about my services, click here or just get in touch and ask!
