My name is Nuria and I am a Birth and Postnatal doula, registered with Doula UK, in Reading (Berkshire).

When I was pregnant, I got very inspired by Michel Odent’s philosophy and both my partner and me prepared ourselves for a conscious birth experience. Afterwards, I found myself willing to help other mums to give birth confidently, and decided to attend a doula training with Michel Odent and Liliana Lammers (Paramana Doula).

I was lucky enough to have Nuria as my doula for the birth of my first baby in June. I found the continuity of care I received from her before, during and even after the birth more than I could have expected.

When I met Nuria I thought she had really gentle, calming qualities to her character which was exactly what I thought I would need in such a situation.

My husband also benefited greatly from her support and guidance during the birth. He felt he was able to support me even better as a result of her suggestions. 

Nuria was able to be very impartial and did not push her views but shared her opinion if I asked. I think this is a quality you need in a doula and is very hard to come by in most people.

I’m very grateful to Nuria for her support at such an important and special time for me and my new family.

What is a Doula?

Doula is a Greek word meaning “woman servant”. Currently, the doula is the one who accompanies the woman or the couple, during pregnancy, labour and postnatal period.

The main role of a birth doula is to provide practical and evidence based information on pregnancy and birth, and to protect mother’s space, privacy, a basic need for a physiological birth. A birth doula has knowledge of the physiology of birth, but does not have a clinical role; offers emotional and physical accompaniment, may use comfort measures (breathing, relaxation, movement,…) and helps mother to make informed birth choices.

Postnatal doulas work in the home of the families as they may need, helping around the house, offering reassurance, supporting with infant feeding. This will help families to settle down after childbirth and bond with their baby and encouraging a smooth transition into parenthood.
