‘’Rosie was our amazing doula. We were very lucky to have her by our side during Williams homebirth…her support, strength and encouragement throughout honestly contributed to our positive birth experience and I have also made a very special friend for life!’’
‘’Elsa is one today! It’s a whole year since you were there offering such amazing support at her birth. We look back on that day with such happiness and so much of that is down to your presence – keeping us calm, making us feel empowered and in control. Thank you.’’
Jess, St. Margarets
‘’Thank you so much for your support in the lead up and to Milo’s birth and during labour, especially in the hospital where you took me in so swiftly and took over as my spokesperson when I really needed your confidence and directness with the midwives. Having your support gave me the confidence to have a really positive birth experience this time round. I’m so proud to have had such a straightforward labour and it’s made such a lovely start to our life with Milo’’
“I cannot thank you enough for your amazing support, kindness, laughter and willingness to be there every step of my marathon journey. I had confidence because you were there and could not have imagined it without you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
“Rosie was a wonderful support in the lead up and during the birth of my second child. She helped my husband and I prepare for the birth by introducing us to hypnobirthing. With the use of music, relaxation, visualisation and breathing techniques I was able to prepare for the natural birth I wanted. During my labour thanks to Rosie my husband felt empowered as he knew how to support me by encouraging me to remain calm and focused on my breathing. This meant that I felt fully supported emotionally. Having Rosie at the birth of my daughter provided us with confidence, strength and the support we needed resulting in a very special, positive experience for us both. Thank you Rosie.”
“Rosie was brilliant at the birth of our baby boy. She is very reassuring and helped take unnecessary stress out of the situation by dealing with the maternity ward staff. Our baby boy was born without any need for pain relief or other interventions and I think that is largely down to the calming environment that Rosie created.”
“I was very worried about childbirth and pregnancy, especially as I have not got close family or friends with babies nearby. Rosie helped me feel much more confident about the whole experience and provided lots of information so that I could make an informed choice about what I wanted to achieve with my birth. I had a few medical issues in late pregnancy, and I am convinced that had I not had Rosie I would not have achieved the natural birth that I eventually had.”
”Hi Rosie, just a quick note to say thanks for our terrific ante-natal sessions. Your personal approach, thorough preparation, reassuring manner, and wealth of practical knowledge really helped boost my confidence for my first labour. I’m certain this was a strong factor in my smooth and natural delivery. ”
Slawka, St.Margarets (mother of Victoria)
”Dear Rosie, just wanted to say thank you so much for what you have done for us. It was so reassuring to have you there. You are warm, kind and so supportive and we couldn’t have done it without you. ”
Tamsin, Thames Ditton (mother of May)
”As a mum to be I found the help and support of Rosie as a birthing doula invaluable. Her knowledge regarding childbirth was vast. The support before and during the birth gave me the confidence to have the perfect birth experience. In addition her network within the Richmond borough is fabulous and she offers helpful information and encouragement without hesitation. ”
Sara, Twickenham (mother of Felix and Briony)
‘I did Rosie’s course prior to the birth of my daughter. If there is one thing I would recommend it would by hypnobirthing. I’m absolutely positive I would nto have had the same birthing experience if I hadn’t neen armed with the knowledge and empowerment from Rosie. It never goes to plan but this puts you in contrl and gives you the ability to remain calm and make informed choices. My partner who was initially sceptical loved it too. Rosie’s course is highly practical and based on sound medical knowledge.
This course made all the difference to us as a family, we learnt so much about my body and the baby’s journey and the huge role that my husband had to play in labour. We thank Rosie and her words of wisdom for our magical, calm water birth.
Having practiced hypnobirthing with my first child, I wanted to refresh my approach to birth with our second son. I found Rosie through the positive birth movement group and Rosie provided us with a fantastic refresher to hypnobirthing. I was able to access all the wonderful resourses and Rosie too us through the practice again as well as providing many tips and advice for the birth. I was able to put it all into practice and have a wonderful natural birth thanks to hypnobirthing and Rosie.
I’m so happy we found Rosie’s course so early in my pregnancy and we were able to practice hypnobirthing. For my whole life I have been scared of labour, but Rosie taught us how to stay positive, focus on your body and connect with your baby. We couldn’t have asked for a better birth experience
”Rosie came to me as a post natal doula for my son and stayed on to be a birth doula at the birth of my daughter! She is so knowledgeable about all aspects of infant care as well as events and classes in the local community. My son adored her and I felt so completely confident in the level of care and interaction he got with her. She is a godsend!”
