Evidenced based woo, or the confessions of a hippy scientist, part 2

Evidenced based woo, or the confessions of a hippy scientist, part 2

As a scientist, one of the things that irritate the hell out of me is when people dismiss complimentary therapies by saying that they aren’t evidence based. We live in a narrow minded, sceptic’s culture, whereby anything that hasn’t been proven to be true in a double blind randomised controlled trial is dismissed as quackery.…

Being not doing as a postnatal doula

    It’s a well known fact in the doula community that the essence of a doula is about being not doing.   Recently I reflected upon how important this is as a postnatal doula too. The interesting thing is, doulaing for postnatal families, is like all doula work : a mix of informational, emotional and…

Ten things I wish I had known before I became a doula.

Ten things I wish I had known before I became a doula.

I wish I had known how much awe I would feel watching a woman birth her baby. I wish I had known how much sacredness there is in birth-when the baby has just been born there is this incredible energy in the room-it is so palpable you can almost touch it. I wish I had…

Why did I leave science to become a doula?

Why did I leave science to become a doula?

I often get told that leaving my career in science to become self employed to support parents in their journey to parenthood was “brave”. In a culture which values intellectual knowledge and status so much, I can understand why it would seem odd that I chose to leave a 20 year long successful scientific career,…

Nurturing postpartum recipes, part2, groaning cake

Nurturing postpartum recipes, part2, groaning cake

I love expressing my nurturing nature to new mamas by giving them something delicious and nourishing to eat, and what is more nourishing than a home baked cake?   After reading Ami McKay “The birth house” a few years ago, a local doula friend, Maddie Mc Mahon, and I started baking this traditional cake called…

Nurturing postpartum recipes, part1, perineal herbal bags

This is the first of a series of posts on postnatal healing rituals for new mothers. I think that our culture sorely lacks rituals when it comes to nurturing new mothers, and I love reclaiming and sharing ideas around making new mamas feel special and cared for. A couple of weeks ago I bumped into…
