ABOUT ME

Hello!

I’m Rosie - The Plymouth Doula, and your Best Friend For Birth & Parenthood! I am passionate about all things birth and babies, and love helping new families find balance. I’m mum to Max, the most mischievous toddler I’ve ever met, and wife to Giresh, the best cook I’ve ever met!​

 

Having spent the past 12 years working in education (I’m a qualified teacher), I’ve been lucky enough to live and work in France, America, India, and for the past 3 years, Malaysia. Max was born by emergency Caesarean whilst we were living in Malaysia, which is something I really hadn’t prepared myself for. Looking for answers to my own questions is what got me started on the path to becoming a doula and birth educator, and since then I have guided dozens of families through pregnancy and birth. 

In my work as a doula and birth educator I have worked with families who have experienced the following:

  • VBAC

  • Pregnancy Loss

  • Vaginal Birth

  • Caesarean Birth

  • Epidurals

  • Anxiety and/or Depression

  • SPD (Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction)

  • Second or Third Pregnancy

  • Pregnancy & Birth Without Family Support

TRAINING & ONGOING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Keeping my knowledge up to date is really important to me, as it means I can support you more effectively. Here are some of the training courses I've completed recently:

  • Childbirth Educator (CBI) 2019 

  • Birth Doula (Madriella) 2019  

  • Postpartum Professional (Newborn Mothers) 2020  

  • Advanced VBAC Doula (The VBAC Link) 2020 

  • Paediatric First Aid (St. John Ambulance) 2020 

And here's what I'm currently working on:

1. Trauma Informed Doula Education - Conscious Birthing

2. Breastfeeding Educator Certification - Bebo Mia
