Gabriella Molina (She/Her)

Bio

Hi my name  is Gabriella Molina I am a mother to four beautiful children.

My journey through motherhood helped me realise my life’s purpose.

I am passionate about supporting families through conception, pregnancy, post natal and the stages of parenthood. 

While raising my family I have worked as a chef. This experience has given me  the awareness of the power of good, wholesome food. I use this knowledge within my role as a doula: feeding mothers through pregnancy and the sacred post natal period. 

I believe that a mother should be nurtured through all stages, holistically.

Uduak Udondem

Bio

Providing mothers and babies opportunities and knowledge to experience a healthy pregnancy, safe labour and memorable birth while embracing the joys of this new chapter for themselves and their families is a paramount and undeniable right for all.
Pregnancies and births are unique to each situation, and the insightful and obvious clarity that holds true to all during my 14 years as a Doula is that we all have the similar needs, wants and aspirations such as growing in confidence, feeling safe and nurturing connectedness.
My professionalism is imbued with a great sense of joy, calmness, enthusiasm that provides support and empathic listening which uplifts the pregnant mother of the power and strength she holds in her birth journey.
My combined therapies of massage, reiki, vagina steaming enhances the client’s experience of womanhood and motherhood, bringing healing, cleansing, connecting and nurturing in her life, family and community.

Lorraine Pryce (She/Her)

Their Services

Bio

I am a mama, a doula and fierce supporter of the birth rights of all birthing people.
I believe everyone should feel supported through their journey to become a parent, especially as the journey often has highs and lows. From pregnancy to birth, to those first few months as a new parent, all of us should feel empowered to make choices that are right for us, our bodies, and our babies.
My own journey taught me that although I felt supported in my pregnancy and birth, I didn’t feel empowered enough to make choices that I knew, deep down, were right for me. It is the age-old proverb, “If I knew then, what I know now…”
So, I’ve taken the experiences I had, the lessons I learned and the teachings I received and support people on their own journeys. From providing evidence-based information to providing space, time and compassion to talk through their experiences, I am here to support you.

Rosie Carter Suso

Their Services

Bio

I am a nature-inspired birthkeeper/traditional birth attendant supporting families to have loving and empowered pregnancy, birth and early bonding experiences. Since starting to support families in 2018, I’m very thankful to have worked and learnt with some incredible birthing families, midwives, educators and activists as well as enjoying a rich network of wise birthworkers who I collaborate and share support with. How we birth and care for one another has far reaching consequences for us all. My aim when working with families is to provide a safe space and support for you to connect to your innate intuition to birth and parent. Everyone’s needs are different. My practice is rooted in body sovereignty, anti-racism and decolonising birth. Blessings for your journey.

Together we can navigate concerns, options and rights that may influence your birth. Placing knowledge of your body, hand in hand, with a robust understanding of your birthing landscape.

Dr Leila Kamala (she/her)

Bio

I am a mum of two boys, a yoga teacher and a scholar of literature (focusing on African American and Black British literature). I am also a birth doula. I approach preparation for birth and the birth process itself through a range of tools which help you to feel strong, empowered, and supported. I am a firm believer in the power of the breath and the body, and that however natural or medicalised your birth experience is, staying in touch with your own innate power will be of great assistance in embracing the experience. I am also always learning in community, and all of my work nourishes me as I work in partnership with others.

Jo Dunn (she/her)

Their Services

Bio

Jo Dunn is a birth and post natal Doula of almost a decade, with some 25 years worth of experience working with families to draw from. Her biggest inspiration is being present as Woman realise their own power to birth their babies on their terms. Jo is fully committed to bringing forth pregnancy, birth and parent education that creates awareness so that parents can make fully informed decisions. Listening to hundreds of families from all corners of the earth over the years has caused her to know that often women are not fully informed by their care providers and that hospital protocols are not rules. From this perspective she has found herself determined that anyone she supports has all of the information that enables them to cultivate a positive birth and post partum experience. It’s her deep knowing that birth should be undisturbed, the birth space protected and the birth rights of all pregnant people held to the highest standards.
Jo is a pet parent, aunty, kitchen wizard, keen traveller and Liverpool fc fan.
