Bio

I am a birthworker who provides support and advocacy for those navigating birth, parenthood and reproductive healthcare. I am passionate about providing affirming and trauma-informed support to those most marginalised by the medical system, especially Black and brown, queer and trans people. Much of my work is informed by drawing upon South Asian practices and rituals to reconnect us with our traditional modes of healing.

Services: I am currently offering in-person support throughout the perinatal period, including prenatal education, birth support and postnatal healing.

Aisha Amarfio

Email in the first instance | aisha@doulashaman.com | https://www.doulashaman.com

I am a shamanic therapist, author and birth keeper, offering hypnobirthing, antenatal education and birth doula support in London.

I provide emotional, mental and practical support as well as advocacy and education to prepare and support the whole family through pregnancy, birth and beyond. 

Within the ancient wisdom of shamanism, birth is understood as a transformative rites of passage that can connect you to a deep sense of power.  As a shamanic practitioner, I am interested in nurturing your connection to this power and the innate wisdom of your body, to help you have the best birth possible for you, baby and your ancestral line. 

As your doula I can provide 

  • Counselling and coaching to provide emotional support, heal trauma, build power and inner resilience
  • personalised hypnobirthing sessions providing tools to reclaim the calm, confident and positive experience that birth can be.
  • antenatal information to help you navigate maternity care and make informed evidence-based decisions about your birth preferences and what is the right birth plan for you. 
  • nature based energy medicine to provide comfort, relieve tension, anchor trust and spiritual relationship with baby and your body during pregnancy and birth
  • attendance at your birth, as a gentle presence, to protect your process and birthing space and to advocate for you and your body’s needs.

Yvonne Sulola (she/her)

07957757292 | yvonne@abiyamodoula.com | https://www.abiyamodoula.com

I live in Woodford Green, East London with my husband and 3 children.  Providing services across London and some parts of Essex.  Prior to becoming a Doula I  worked as a healthcare practitioner within the NHS for many years. So, I’m fully aware of how the system works and how over-medicalised things have become.  After experiencing my own childbirths and also supporting friends and family through their personal childbirth and postpartum journeys I realised that empowering women and their partners during this process ignited something within me.   As your Doula I will work together with you to attain a safe, calm, and positive birthing experience. Holding space for you, helping you to trust your body, and making sure you are equipped with the information you need to make informed decisions.  To provide support and share the joy as new parents are born is what fuels my soul as a Doula
