Pre & Postnatal Support for Mothers
We had Lindsay as our Doula for our third child, a home water birth after 2 prior caesareans. From the outset Lindsay went above and beyond, showing a real passion and commitment we had not found elsewhere. At first I was really nervous about meeting Lindsay, with a complex birth history and challenging plans ahead I thought I may scare her off! Having had negative experiences with birth previously I was very anxious letting someone into our private life, fears and vulnerabilities around birth. However, I simply cannot put into words how pleased I am to have met Lindsay. I couldn’t now imagine anyone else sharing these intimate moments with us.
Prior to the birth Lindsay supported all my ‘wobbles’ and concerns and really helped to reassure us and any fear I had leading up to the birth, I wholeheartedly believe Lindsay was a key factor in us achieving our home birth.
During the birth, Lindsay was an amazing support stepping it at the perfect times. I remember all the little things like swooshing the pool water during my contractions, really helping to ease the un-comfort, or knowing the exact moment I wanted the gas and air, aware of my signals and really in tune with my birth. It was amazing to have someone that I felt connected with the flow of birth as effortlessly as Lindsay did. Not only was she a tremendous help for myself but a real support for my poor husband, who I clung to continuously, managing between them to let him use the loo without me having a meltdown about it! I have no doubt my husband would have been completely drained also without Lindsay’s additional support. I had not realised just how needy I would be!
Following birth Lindsay really helped with emotional support and guidance, having experienced PND previously this was a huge fear of mine, In the darkest of moments Lindsay really helped me find clarity and process rationally. I cannot see where I would be without this invaluable help, I will be forever grateful to Lindsay for her continued support in these moments.
Throughout the entire process Lindsay has the perfect balance of knowing exactly the right things to say, to empower, support, encourage or simply to listen. I would recommend Lindsay 100% to anyone looking for a Doula, a Doula in which is the nicest, most kind hearted lady I know. Being pregnant now again Lindsay continues our journey bringing our newest child into our life and in doing so continues to amaze me with how wonderful she is! I wouldn’t have anyone else!
Have full faith, whatever your journey, Lindsay is the perfect support for you.
"Lindsay has a lovely way of making you feel relaxed and able to open up and talk about things
that I certainly had not talked about or thought about before.I found this really helpful in starting to get my thoughts in some sort of order. She provided me with helpful information and links and gave me good guidance whilst always making sure I knew that things were my choice and I was (as far as possible) in control."
When my wife first suggested a Doula I found the concept quite strange. I trusted my wife’s intuition and was happy to meet Lindsay together to discuss what having a doula entailed. Over the course of my wife’s pregnancy we got to know Lindsay further and I could really see how much she helped to support my wife’s concerns (my wife tends not to listen to me, in typical wife fashion) having Lindsay as a voice of reason really helped my wife to keep calm and prepare for the birth. During the birth Lindsay helped a lot and I felt gave me the opportunity to fully support my wife on a deeper level as I knew Lindsay was able to relive some of the additional strain and tasks of a woman in labour. Lindsay supported us following the birth, I am happy we made the decision to have her as our doula. I would recommend Lindsay to anyone looking for Doula services.
‘Nothing would be cooler than having Lindsay as your doula!’
