Lucy was our birth and postnatal doula for our home birth. After deciding that we would like our first birth to be a home birth, we felt additional emotional and practical support from a doula would help both myself and my husband stay relaxed and calm which we knew was so important for welcoming our son.
Lucy not only was there for the birth, but before. She supported us with knowledge and the confidence that we were making the right decisions for our baby and birth. During the birth she made sure the midwives were looked after, that my husband was okay and helped keep me relaxed and my breathing calm. Without a doubt her presence contributed to what was truly a positive birth experience.
During the birth she advocated for our choices and afterwards helped us settle. She held our little boy while I showered and my husband rested.
Lucy has been available for support after our birth, and really helpful with advice around slings and baby wearing. We’ve settled into our new lives as a family of 3 and feel like it has been hugely helped by Lucy’s support and confidence.
