I’m Jenny, a Postnatal Doula, supporting and nurturing new families in the South of Birmingham
I always knew that I wanted to work with and care for people; I studied psychology at university before working in the NHS for 10 years in physical rehabilitation. Having my daughter was a life-changing experience and I was surrounded by people who cared for me both during her birth and in the early days of motherhood. This prompted me to retrain and after 2 years of study, I qualified as an antenatal facilitator and breastfeeding counsellor. I’ve supported hundreds of expectant-parents as they prepare for birth and the postnatal period, and countless new-mothers with feeding challenges. Becoming a postnatal doula felt like the next natural step for me. I love walking-alongside new mums, supporting them practically and emotionally and giving them the confidence to care for their baby in the way that feels right for them.
Outside of work I enjoy gardening, baking, craft, and going for long walks with my family.
