Anne lives in rural Dumfries and Galloway, but can be in Glasgow or most parts of the central belt in an hour and Edinburgh in an hour and a half.
The experience of training as an NCT doula was really exciting for Anne. Her births were all very different and enjoyable in their own ways. She knows it is not always easy to have the kind of birth you hope for and would love to enable more women to do so. Anne feels passionately that a positive birth experience is a really good foundation for parenthood.
As an NCT antenatal teacher with twenty four years of experience, Anne likes to empower her clients. Most of them gain the confidence to experience the birth that is right for them but she is aware that a few people need extra support. As a doula, Anne can provide that extra support in many ways to women with and without partners, or with any particular needs.
She is able to support you emotionally, offer you comfort measures such as massage, and help you use active birth skills such as breathing and relaxation. Anne can also support your partner during the labour. She will meet with you again after the birth to discuss your labour with you.
Anne loves being out in the fresh air. She enjoys gardening and has recently travelled to China and Iceland and walked the West Highland way with her sons.
Anne is an NCT antenatal teacher and NCT doula.
Anne will provide support by:
- Meeting with you twice before the birth of the baby, and once after.
- Being on call up to two weeks before the birth until the baby arrives.
- Being able to communicate with medical and midwifery staff.
