A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
Hi! I'm Liv (she/her) and I'm a mentored Doula supporting birthing women and people, and their families in Bristol and surrounding areas.
After having my first baby in 2020, in the middle of a pandemic, I realised the importance of the people you surround yourself with. It really does take a village and I'd love to be a part of yours.
When I'm not Doula-ing around, I'm also a mum to my daughter, a partner, a sister, a daughter and friend.
Welcome to the club...
Liv has supported me throughout the first couple of months with my newborn alongside managing the new experience of two under twos!
She is quick to connect on a personal level and gets stuck in to every task, whether it's keeping an eye on the baby or toddler, taking the baby for a walk while I get some rest or run errands, making a meal or building a piece of furniture! She is also very knowledgeable and provides constructive advice. I think Liv is absolutely fabulous!
We have found our antenatal sessions with Liv invaluable. We were able to cover a whole range a topics, from labour to preparing for when our little boy is here, which means we feel so much more prepared and at ease as we reach the end of the third trimester.
It's more than just covering certain topics. It's a tailored support plan and it's a friend at the end of the phone when you're feeling anxious or have questions and aren't sure where to turn. It's so reassuring to know we have Liv's postnatal support too.
If you're undecided as to whether a Doula is right for you, my advice would be to take the leap and reach out to Liv to see how she can support you - I guarantee you will feel a lot better for doing so!
