As an experienced midwife, I know how important it is that a doula can properly support and represent a woman’s needs in pregnancy, labour and postnatally whilst also acknowledging and respecting the midwife’s role. It is a difficult but essential skill and a doula that has mastered this is a gem to be treasured.
Karen is that special doula. Calm, caring and empathetic, she is also smart, insightful and highly trained. Her excellent birth and postnatal doula skills are matched by her abilities as an active birth teacher and infant feeding advisor – the genuine complete deal.
It is a lucky couple that have Karen as their guide and support.
