After the birth of my children I began to research pregnancy and childbirth finally coming across the term 'Doula'
Doula is a Greek term for ' woman servant' / 'caregiver' or sometimes  'mothering the mother'
I was drawn to the concept of a Doula as I felt that I would have benefited from support from someone who could my endless and reassure me that I was doing the right thing for my baby!    

The concept of supporting  and establishing confidence in ourselves to birth and parent really appeals to me. 
 I do not believe that one birthing or parenting style fits all:we are all individuals and families come in many different forms.
