Doula Services

As your doula my role is to support, nurture and empower you and your family. I am here to provide emotional and practical support as well as helping signpost you to evidence-based information and resources. I work with families antenatally, as a birth doula, and as a postnatal doula, allowing continuity of care for your blossoming family as you navigate the twists and turns of this unique time.

I completed my doula course in 2022 under the guidance of Aimee Hamblyn and Developing Doulas. I have been a volunteer Breastfeeding Counsellor with the Association of Breastfeeding Mothers for many years and in 2021 I qualified as an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant). 

I support all families through all birth choices. As your doula, I want to help you to achieve the birth you desire, whatever decision that may mean for you.

If you'd be interested in finding out more about how my support could be tailored to your needs, please do get in touch. I offer a free informal chat to see if you feel like we'd be suited to working together. 

If you are finding yourself restricted from accessing my services due to financial circumstances, please contact me and I can discuss a variety of options with you, including payment plans or directing you to other free or low-cost sources of support.

Shared Care

At times I offer birth doula support working with my doula partner Melinda Balint who is also based in East Kent. We work together sharing our time with each client and supporting you throughout your pregnancy and birth and settling you into the postnatal period. We share this time and as a team and provide you with constant support.  


With shared care, you receive the combined knowledge and life experiences of more than one doula. As a partnership, we have a passion to normalise physiological birth and lactation. Our shared knowledge spans birthing in hospital and at home, infant feeding, hypnobirthing, antenatal education and nurturing the family postnatally. If you are particularly keen to have shared care, please let me know when you get in touch.

Shared Care Team

Melinda Balint


Melinda is Doula, Hypnobirthing teacher and babywearing peer supporter living in Broadstairs offering support in East-Kent.

She finished her doula course with Developing Doulas under the guidance of Katie Olliffe. She is teaching the Wise Hippo Birthing Programme and is supporting babywearing families through the sling library in and around Margate.

She is an advocate for positive birth experiences, helping families in making informed decisions, tailoring the service to their needs. She is an essential oil nerd, a great listener and a gentle caring person who would be your advocate when you are the most vulnerable.

Coming from a culture that is still nurturing the knowledge of old generations of women giving birth, Melinda believes that birthing people should reclaim their stories and make the decisions that are best for them with the help of evidence-based information and listening to their own inner voice.


Melinda strongly believes that we should enjoy the advantages of living in a small community by lifting each other and forging the village that does indeed raise our children.

To confirm a booking for birth or postnatal doula services with me I require the client to sign a contract and make a holding deposit of 20% of the total fee. The remainder of the payment requirements will be outlined in the contract. I am very happy to discuss payment plans and how best to accommodate your financial circumstances.


Remote support - During our contracted time together, I can be contacted via phone, email or Whatsapp. Messages and emails will be responded to within 24 hours of receiving them (often sooner) and will only be monitored during my standard working day (8am - 9pm) unless previously arranged.
