I’m a music loving urban gardener, yoga enthusiast, and where there’s music you’ll find me on the dance floor. I entered the world of birth and babies in 2019 as a volunteer supporting vulnerable pregnant women including refugees and those with limited or no family support.
As a previous headteacher I have loving memories of working alongside families with children aged 4 – 18 including those with Special Needs. Since becoming part of the birthing world, very few of those memories compare with the joys of supporting birth and transition. Through my previous career, I’ve learnt to be flexible and adaptable especially when having to deal with sometimes unpredictable situations. I’ve completed the Abuela Birth Preparation and Postnatal Sankofa training and I’m open to providing antenatal, birth and postnatal support. I’m here to walk beside you, hold your hand (if you want me to), and to have your back when you’re at your most vulnerable, but most of all I want to be the doula suited to your needs.

Doula, Breastfeeding peer helper and Baby wearing peer supporter. Having worked in childcare for over 25 years and looking after various children in the family and professionally I have always felt that I hadn’t quite found the exact fit for me. I love supporting parents of new babies on their parenting journey and supporting them and have always felt supporting them from the beginning of their journey

I’m passionate about birth and pregnancy education, I take great pride in tailoring the support to the families I work with. I gravitate towards full spectrum, continual support (even when I was an NHS Midwife), taking great satisfaction from “walking” the path with individual families, witnessing them grow, develop and be empowered.
I’m confident and calm in various birth settings and truly dedicated to infant feeding support.
Due to recent events I have had to make adjustments in my care to ensure we all stay safe; but families are still supported and reassured. This is why I am providing online support in comprehensive packages to suit varying lifestyles and budgets.

Hello and a big warm welcome! My name’s Jolande and I’m a birth and postnatal Doula based in Birmingham.
I’m a Holistic Massage Therapist and Reflexologist who became obsessed with all things pregnancy and birth through my own lived experiences with my two children.
I enjoy a lot of music, in particular Jazz, Reggae, Folk, Alternative, Indie & Kirtan. I’m also partial to a nice orchestral cello piece! I love to cook, so be warned, you WILL end up with delicious meals and decadent bakes on a regular basis. I also appreciate a good theatrical production.
I completed my Doula training under the instruction of Abuela Doula’s Mars Lord in June 2020. And I provide support to pregnant people, birthing individuals, new parents and their partners/families across the West & East Midlands. (International clients are welcome. Please contact me directly to discuss your needs).
I’m passionate about supporting people through fertility, pregnancy, birth and beyond. And I truly believe that everyone deserves to have a positive birth experience and a nurturing postnatal period no matter what that may look like for you.
My main area of interest is surrounding postnatal care. Often overlooked but not to be undervalued, the postnatal period is a time for rest, recovery, bonding & nurturing.
I often describe myself as a home away from home. So come on in, put your feet up and let’s enjoy a cuppa whilst we discuss your wants, needs and desires.
