Name: Angela Voisey
Services: Recognised Birth & Postnatal Doula
A bit about me: My job as a doula is to help empower a mother and family through one of the most life changing moments of their lives. I trained to become a doula in November 2015 and my first birth as a doula was on 1st January 2016, what an amazing start to the New Year!
I would love the privilege to support you and your family in any situation, with any kind of birth and parenting choices you may make. I can support you through pregnancy, labour and birth and if you would like can provide practical and emotional support after your baby is born in the postnatal period at your home.
I can provide you with balanced information to enable you to make informed decisions along your journey from birth options, physiology of birth, infant feeding, pain management and anything else you may wish to discuss or have concerns about.
I work with both you and your partner, getting to know you both and making a plan on what support you want during your labour.
My job is to help prepare you for the arrival of your baby and to create a safe space emotionally in which you can give birth.
Pregnancy and birth is truly amazing it is what our bodies are designed to do, and I know how much positive support through this period can really help. My goal is to provide this to all the mothers I work with – the security and support to have a positive pregnancy and birth, and to be fully present with their baby in the postnatal period.
During the birth I will be there exclusively for you. My focus will be 100% on you, in whatever way you find suits you best. I will be your friend and your advocate throughout labour, whether at home or at hospital, and whether it’s a 4 hour labour or a 2 day labour. I will help create a calm, supportive environment where you can feel comfortable and nurtured.
If you feel you don’t need the full birth package, I can offer 1:1 private antenatal sessions in your home to help you prepare for your labour and birth.
I have 2 amazing children who have grown up fast and I know how much help I needed in those early weeks so after the birth during the postnatal period I can help with, breastfeeding support, basic baby-care support, light housework (loading the dishwasher, some cooking etc), getting you some shopping, can look after older children to give you a rest, a shoulder to cry on and someone to listen to you, a chance to “de-brief” your birth in as much detail as you’d like…I’ll even hold your new baby while you have a shower! My role would be to create a calm, secure space where everything feels looked after, so that you can really focus on your baby and your new role as a mother.
I’m a certified IAIM (International Association of Infant Massage) Instructor, please contact me for classes near you or 1:1 sessions.
If you’d like to have a chat to find out how I can support you please give me a call or drop me an email.
I also offer my doula services to local projects who look after vulnerable girls, it is truly an honour and blessing to be able to support these girls in making their birth a positive experience.
All my clients are happy to provide references.
