Doula | Yoga Teacher | Mother 

 

 

 

Hi, I'm Lucy. Doula, Yoga Teacher and new mama based in South East London.

Pregnancy is a gift to be enjoyed. Through Yoga we check in with your body and your baby, we help to ease any physical issues that come up, help to keep you supple and strong (gently), we practice breathing techniques for birthing, help you to relax, sleep better and bond with your baby.  

If you choose me as your Birth and Postnatal Doula I'm yours to help you have the safest and most positive birth experience possible and settle into life as family. When new parents feel listened to and nurtured, when their choices are respected and babies are born and raised gently, by parents who feel strong and empowered, the world becomes a better place!

And of course, I would be thrilled to support you with some nurturing Post-natal yoga once your baby has arrived. We work gently together to rediscover your new body post-childbirth, to strengthen your pelvic floor and generally nourish your body and mind through your postnatal healing. 

If you'd like to learn a little more about me, you can follow me on Instagram, email me or give me a call to arrange a chat over a chai?

How can I support you?

Nice words about me

Thank you so much for being such a huge part of my pregnancy journey and transition into motherhood.
We are so grateful to have had you at the birth with us, your quiet presence was exactly what we needed, warm and strong, loving, soft and supportive.
You’ve been so invaluable with all the information, research, guidance and follow up both before and after birth, we would have been so overwhelmed trying to do it all ourselves.

I could not have asked for better support from a doula and wish you will be there for my next one already!

Lucy’s classes made such a difference to my pregnancy. I had tried other pregnancy yoga classes and found the yoga practise itself boring and repetitive while the classes lacked something that touched me as a person. Lucy’s yoga sessions are challenging, dynamic and energising while always adapting to and respecting the changing pregnant body. The classes include work on breathing skills to help with labour and birth, based always on Lucy’s own practical experience during her own labour and her work as a doula. However, it is Lucy herself who makes her classes stand apart from the rest. Lucy gives so much to each class member - listening to their problems and gently suggesting solutions.She weaves this kindness, warmth and respect for others through each part of our classes, turning us from a disparate group into a community. Joining my first class I was overwhelmed by my own fears, and I left much more confident in my own abilities. Through my pregnancy, Lucy’s classes have always be a highlight in my week and I have grown so much through them. Thank you Lucy!
