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

Childbirth is a very precious moment in every woman’s life; I believe women can prepare for a positive birth experience by making informed choices and deciding the way they want to live this unique experience.

Antenatally I can help you prepare for the birth by being there to listen, to help you refocus and support you to feel more confident about the birth, I can help you with your birth plan and signpost you to evidence-based information so you can make informed choices.

During the birth I can give you massage (or show your birth partner how to do it), use my Rebozo as labour comfort measures, and get some aromatherapy going. I’ll make sure both you and your partner are well looked after. I’ve been at very different births and accompanied families in a variety of settings.

Postnatally my focus is on helping you make a smooth transition into motherhood. I’ll help you with practical stuff around the house, as well as offer you emotional support. I can help you with breastfeeding and babywearing (and signpost you to local groups for further help)

We are delighted to have partnered with you in the preparation for having our child Isaac at the RBH (event though we planned for a home birth) and in particular for the support during labour and right through to the delivery of our baby.

The psychological support made all the difference because of the negative hospital experience we had with having our first child.

Thank you for all of the help and advice during pregnancy and the support and the preparation for the coming of the baby, and letting me know what was going on during the different stages I went through on the day.

God bless.

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.
