instinctive birth doula services


"Alice was a wonderful doula. I felt hugely supported in the antenatal period as Alice was always on hand to answer questions or bounce ideas off. She also attended a hospital appointment with me, lent me books and essential oils and did a tremendous amount to help me to relax and believe in myself leading up to the birth.

During the birth, Alice was always a source of calm, comfort and encouragement as well as practical support. I am so grateful for the pivotal part she played in helping me to have the wonderful homebirth I wanted and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her."

"If you are wondering if a doula is the right choice for you, let me really encourage you to go for it. I was unsure of doulas at first as they often seemed to be 'hippy dippy' and I didn't want to 'breathe through the pain', but I cannot imagine my birth experience without Alice. From our first 'get to know you' and preparation meetings through to the delivery itself and the follow-up, Alice put me, my needs, and my preferences first. She provided non-judgemental support and a hand to squeeze during contractions and stitches. She reassured my husband that, in spite of the ridiculous amounts of bodily fluids, things were normal and we were doing well. She managed the tricky balance of fading into the background when we needed to be on our own and being very present when we asked."

"Alice is an exceptional and gifted doula. I feel blessed that she supported me through pregnancy, birth and in the weeks afterwards. I will never be able to thank Alice enough.

Throughout my birth experience Alice calmed me, checked things with me, protected my wishes and made sure the midwives understood what I wanted. Alice is a gentle and loving soul who can be fiercely protective when necessary. A perfect combination.

Needless to say, I love her from the bottom of my heart"

"Alice is a warm, charming and very empathetic person and we loved to have her as our doula. Her great energy immediately put smiles on our faces and we felt more like having a friend or a family member with us. Having such a caring and calming person by our side, helped us to stay calm ourselves in the most stressful situations. She respected our choices without judgement and supported us, so we were listened to by the medical staff. We think she has a real talent to be a doula and we would definitely recommend her"

"Alice was kind, caring and friendly. She seemed really knowledgeable and I really trusted her. Having such a calming and caring person there, (other than my husband), really made my birth a more pleasant experience"
