About Me

I am a mother (of two) and ex-nanny. I am a mentored (Doula UK) birth and postnatal doula and am now available to help your family post birth. I am also happy to help with older babies.
I currently have availability during the week, evenings and weekends. I can be flexible on hours and am happy to do one-off support or longer term. Available for overnight support too.
I have my own transport, full drivers licence and many years daily London driving experience together with good cooking skills and obviously excellent childcare experience!
Please get in touch for a chat if you think I could be helpful to your family.

My Experience

I was a fulltime nanny for seven years (1990 - 1997) before moving onto office-based work becoming a senior Executive Assistant for the past 20 years. I worked in NZ, America and the UK and have vast experience with all age groups including newborn. I completed a nanny course at that time and was always fully up to date with First Aid. I now have a new St John's Paedeatric First Aid certificate (obtained July 2019) to bring my skills back up to date. I am also in the process of having an enhanced DBS completed though I do have a standard DBS already through another job.
I am also a mother to two wonderful children (currently 4 and 7 years old) and so obviously also have that experience. Becoming a mother myself gave me a very different perspective on life and I believe definitely gives me that 'something special' when it comes to caring for other people's children and supporting new mothers (and partners). I am an empathetic and genuinely caring person with a love of little people. It is such a priviledge to be part of your birthing and parenting journey!

My Qualifications

NZ Nanny certificate, St John's First Aid Certificate, Birth and postnatal doula training with Developing Doulas in May 2019. Standard DBS (in process of obtaining an enhanced certificate), Birth Room Remedies course, Reflux course (due to complete end of January), Biomechanics for birth (due to complete April 2019).
Motherhood! :-)

My Availability

I can be flexible with days / times (not early mornings / before school though). Happy to do ad-hoc or longer term bookings. I am available for overnight support.
