Student Birth Doula: I am based in Glastonbury and can cover my local area – Wells, Bridgewater, Yeovil, Frome, Taunton, Weston-Super-Mare, Shepton Mallet, Warminster, Gillingham and all the little towns/villages in-between (I can also cover up to the edge of Bristol and bath).
Hi I’m Lianne, thank you for coming onto this space to get to know me a little more! I am a seedling Doula – new to the world of birth work but with roots reaching back to a past of care work and art therapy. My seed has been planted into the sacred women community and I’m truly honoured to see new roots grow as I open my heart space and gain more experience by supporting different pregnant people and widening my knowledge. I am a very creative soul who grew up connected to mother nature; and was taught at a young age that trusting in our womanhood is the best type of support a woman can receive. I aspire to bring light to your inner woman who will accompany you and connect you to a vast depth of power we all hold within.
Having a Doula present for your birth invokes the feminine archetype of the crone, the mother of the tribe, the protection and wisdom of an elderly women. I strive to channel this energy into my time with you – I would consider myself the archetypical Maiden. As I grow up from my roots to the stability of my trunk; I embrace this deep respect towards the ‘wisdom women’. Embracing their knowledge as a Maiden gives me the opportunity to bring a fresh energy to the Doula experience whilst guiding the deep wisdom of past generations into our conscious journeys.
I strive for my relationship with each family to be very unique and open, providing as much personalized information as I can. I am inclusive of all identifications and will respect personal views. I’m always learning more with each birth I attend, transforming my knowledge every step along the way. I take time to continuously support you one-on-one by understanding your story and believing in your birth preferences. I aim to advocate for you when needed and be there to signpost you to relevant information if you seek it. I offer pre-natal and post-natal session as well as ongoing advice over the phone when needed, and most importantly; being present for your transformative birth.
We all have beautiful bodies that do absolutely incredible things and I aim to give you the support to feel empowered in your own birth.
Please visit my website to see the services I can offer you or please get in touch - I look forward to hearing from you!
Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope I am the right person for you!
