Hi, I’m Alex, mother of 3 wonderful children (born in 2006, 2009 and 2014) and live in the rural Hampshire countryside between Winchester and Basingstoke. I’m originally from Germany but moved to the UK in 2002.
As your birth doula, I provide continuous emotional, practical and informational support for you and your partner through pregnancy, labour and birth and the immediate postnatal time, nurturing the mother and reassuring you.
Being able to make informed choices is vital for your overall birth experience and to make it a positive one.
Postnatally I offer flexible, practical and emotional support to new mothers and their families in their own home.
Becoming a parent can be overwhelming and adapting to family life challenging but I am there for you, to support you in becoming the parent you want to be. Whether it’s feeding, sleeping or weaning, whether you need to talk about your birth experience and debrief, need practical help, help with older siblings or any other concerns, I will listen to you and support you.
Due to my medical background as a neonatal intensive care nurse, I also offer postnatal support to parents undergoing or having experienced Neonatal Intensive Care.
As a Mindful Breastfeeding Practitioner, I also provide breastfeeding support antenatally and postnatally.”
I cover all areas within 45 minutes drive from my home.
I practice as a certified infant massage instructor (certified with the International Association of Infant Massage) too and run regular group classes as well as individual private classes which I offer within my postnatal service.
I am a certified hypnobirthing instructor having trained with The Little Birth Company. I offer hypnobirthing as part of one of my birthing packages, as individual classes, group classes and workshops (more info on my website).
I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
