Doula Training and birth worker CPD

I'm delighted to now be counted as a facilitator for Developing Doulas and offer courses throughout the year.

I also offer CPD workshops aimed at birth workers.

I have supported many families during Birth and in the early Postnatal time and look forward to supporting many more. Here is what some have said:

Katie was extremely knowledgeable regarding the subject of child development and the impact this can have on sleep. With Katie’s help, advice and support we feel confident in our decision to continue to parent using a gentle approach.

 I had a memorable water birth that I had always dreamed of. I picked up my son and breastfed him while still in the water. I do not think this would have been possible had it not been for Katie’s support. (SK)
