Known as ‘Birmingham Doula’, Lorna has a passion for pregnancy, birth and supporting parents in the postnatal period. As a birth and postnatal doula, she works with expectant families throughout the Midlands region and further afield, preparing them for birth, supporting them during labour and the first few weeks of parenthood.
Alongside her birth work, Lorna also provides a number of complimentary therapies such as massage for fertility and womb health, yoni steams and traditional postnatal belly wrapping.
Qualifying as a nursery nurse in 1987, Lorna has over 30 years’ experience of supporting young children and their families. She came to doulaing through her role as deputy manager of a Children’s Centre. When listening to women’s stories of birth and early parenting, it became apparent that there was a lack of support, the kind of support that could make a significant difference to the lives of mothers, partners, children and families.
She completed her doula training course in 2012 and has worked steadily to become one of the region’s most popular and well-respected doulas.
