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 hired Nuria as our postnatal doula to help care for our twins, born last year. Looking back, I don’t think we would have coped without her! She helped us with everything, from feeding and bathing them, to babywearing, and doing endless rounds of laundry – and all while creating a calm and positive atmosphere. She then continued to support us for a period of several months while we organised permanent childcare, during which time we had the pleasure of also meeting Grace, who stepped in on any days Nuria was away. Thank you Nuria and Grace!

In short, to get doula was one of the best decisions we made during our pregnancy. Nuria and Grace gave us peace of mind and great support. Thanks to them I went to the hospital with super-positive attitude and excitement and I believe it did help us a lot during our long and not-as-planned labor we had and still had positive experience at the end. Nuria and Grace answered all our questions and we could discussed any fears and concerns we had openly. Also as first time parents (from abroad) they gave us loads of useful and practical information about our birth options. Even after first visit we felt they care of us and they are “on our side”. Nuria were with us during the labor and I cannot image how I can ever to have contractions without her wonderful back massage 🙂 Thanks to Nuria and my husband I could focus fully on labor itself as I knew they will manage any “noise” around. Thank you!
