About me

Welcome! My name is Gigi, and I am a doula and trainee Child Psychotherapist based in West London. I have been working with children and families for over five years, and my journey as a doula began when I trained at Nurturing Birth. I come from a large family of seven siblings, which continues to grow with nieces and nephews. 

 

The physiological process of pregnancy and giving birth continuously fascinates me, and I am in constant admiration of the human body. Through my studies, I have learned the importance of supporting and protecting the caregiver-child dynamic and the long-term benefits of doing so. 

 

How can I help?

1.

A listening ear and helping hand in preparing you for your new role. My purpose is to empower you and instil confidence in the weeks and days leading up to your birth. With the aim of increasing the likelihood of achieving the birth experience you want.

2.

 As a birth doula, my mission is to support you in achieving the birth experience you desire, whether it takes place in a hospital, at home, or in a birthing centre. From the beginning to the end, I'll be there by your side with no judgement. While we cannot fully control the birthing process or predict every detail, we can take charge of our mindset and strive for a positive birth experience, regardless of the outcome.

3.

I am here to support you adjust and flourish in your new role and navigate the lifestyle changes. I will be there to hold time and space in whatever way that might look and benefit you the most - physically and emotionally. The weeks after birth are often an emotional rollercoaster. I strongly believe that reducing stress and promoting time to rest and bond, is the most important thing for you and your baby in this period.
