After completing a MSc in Paediatric Osteopathy, I became fascinated in the role of doulas to support women through birth. I offer a woman-centred approach and trust that you are the expert of you. I’m a naturally calm presence and I support with information and research as well as body-based tools so you can be informed and listen to your gut. At births, I hold space, use touch and movement-based tools and support you in the ways that you need.

Hello! I’m Georgie, I’m the Doula in your corner. I have two young children, I home educate and love being with families.
When I was pregnant, I realised the choices I was being offered were not all the options truly available, and I began supporting families to find the information they wanted to make their own choices. As an Abuela doula, l love collaborating with a pregnant person as they discuss their dreams, unravel the information around and feel their own path for their birth. This extends beyond the birth into the first few weeks or months of becoming a parent, as the family work out sleeping, feeding, nutrition for the body and the mind, whilst they connect with their little human. This might be in person, or virtually.
I’m always learning, on courses or from the wonderful humans around me. I’m a Breastfeeding Supporter with ABM and trained with Holistic Sleep Coaching to provide better access for families to hear about potentially non-mainstream ideas.
I love working with families are who feel like they want to be heard, that if their birth ticks every box on the plan or if the plan was crumpled into a ball, they are honoured and celebrated. You might want your doula sitting in the corner quietly whilst you’re in your zone, or standing beside you as an ally. That they are connected, supported, and lifted whilst they move from pregnant to parent.

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.
