I am desperate to train as a Doula to support women through their pregnancy and birth. Many face it alone and really shouldn’t have to....

by Mechelle prior in Epsom, England, United Kingdom

I’ve been a holistic therapist for the last 6 years.... after receiving Reflexology during a very rocky stage of post natal depression (5th child and had been medicated after my two previous births) I strongly believe that holistic therapy can have such a positive effect on our  health and lifestyle. 

I have always wanted to train as a Doula and after 4 very different pregnancies and births I feel maybe more support - possibly from a Doula both during birth and especially postnatal could have reduced the possibility of post natal depression. 

Unfortunately due to the slow build up of my business and juggling childcare and work I am not currently making a profit and this is really hindering any progression and training....

Raising the money to train, qualify and grow my business will allow me to reach out to mums to be that may be in desperate need of support during their pregnancy, birth and beyond.

My long term goal is to combine my massage and Reflexology with my Doula services to grow my business but initially I would like to offer my services (for a heavily reduced cost or even free) to disadvantaged pregnant ladies who are in need of support but are unable to afford a Doula.

This will be my way of giving back into the community if that community can help me....

Let's make 'Raising money to train as a Doula' happen
