Doula myths series part 1 "I don't need a doula because I have my partner"

There are several myths/misconceptions are doula support. One of them is “I don’t need a doula because I will have my partner to support me through the birth”. Sometimes, the partner themselves feels concerned that the doula is going to take their place/make them feel redundant. It couldn’t be further from the truth. So why…

Why I stopped wearing a bra

Why I stopped wearing a bra

In January this year I stopped wearing a bra. What led me to do this? First my work as a birth worker tends to make me question things and to develop the knowledge that our bodies are actually quite well designed. Second I read some blogs posts on the topic (like this one), as well as…

Feeling raw after a long birth

Feeling raw after a long birth

I’m just back from a long birth with little sleep. One that didn’t end the way that the parents had hoped for. They seem OK and are very grateful for the support. But I feel very raw and open, and for some reason I also feel the need to “stay” with that feeling for now-I…

Career changes, giving stuff up and doing what makes your heart sing

Career changes, giving stuff up and doing what makes your heart sing

I am accustomed to making drastic career changes. As you may already know, 3.5 years ago I left a 20 year career in biology research to follow my heart’s calling by becoming a doula, antenatal educator and babywearing instructor (read why I did that here).

Refilling my fuel pump-reflection on the doula retreat

I’m just back from the annual doula retreat in North Wales. Every year for the last 4 years I have joined a group of like minded doulas and birthworkers at the magical place that is Cae Mabon. I am ever so grateful to doula Selina Wallis for organising it 🙂 Cae Mabon is an eco…

The refuelling station, or the importance of self care for doulas and birthworkers

The refuelling station, or the importance of self care for doulas and birthworkers

A couple of days ago I was given a beautiful self care analogy. I was treating my friend Teddy with Reiki. He is an osteopath. For some reason, that day, I was drawn to treat his hands, something I haven’t been trained to do. But when I was treating a new mother recently, she mentioned…

Why attending antenatal classes in your third trimester might be leaving it too late

Why attending antenatal classes in your third trimester might be leaving it too late

I have just had a realisation that attending antenatal classes in the third trimester of your pregnancy might be leaving it too late. Part of it is based on my own experience during my first pregnancy, part is based on my experience supporting women as a doula and antenatal teacher. When I was pregnant with…

The taboo of the first trimester of pregnancy

The taboo of the first trimester of pregnancy

We have this weird taboo in our culture about the first trimester of pregnancy. The first rule of the first trimester is you don’t talk about the first trimester. We just don’t tell people we’re pregnant. I don’t know how it started. Before the advent of medicinal chemistry and pregnancy tests were available, I believe…
