"it takes a village to raise a child."
- Ancient Proverb
A woman’s journey into motherhood is one of the most sacred + beautiful journeys that she will have.
The transformation, however, can be so huge, that it can often be overwhelming, leaving the new mother a little lost.
Often we prepare for birth + labour, we read all the books + do all the breathing exercises, but we forget to think about life postbirth + this is the most sacred of times.
Modern day life has meant that many women have moved away from the communities they were born into + so they are often lacking the support + nurture they so desperately need when they take that first step into motherhood.

Calm Nurture is a postnatal doula service developed to support + nurture new mothers + their families during the vital first 40 days post-birth.
From the moment your baby is born, you have the emotional, physical + mental support to help put your mind at ease, allowing you to focus on nurturing your child.
At this time, families are faced with so many questions of how to care for their new little bundle of joy, that they don't know which way to turn. I have been trained to give evidence based information, to listen non-judgmentally + to sign post to additional services if the family may need them.
I am a qualified Postnatal Doula, trained by Younique Postnatal, as well as a mental health peer supporter trained by NCT, so Calm Nurture is a fully rounded support + nurture program, supporting new mothers, baby + their families, mentally, emotionally + physically.
I specifically work in a holistic way, using organic, chemical free products, aromatherapy, homeopathy + nourishing foods to nurture the mother.
