Helping you to empower yourself to make informed choices and experience a positive journey into parenthood.

Doula in South Derbyshire
Doula in South Derbyshire

I'm Ellie, mother of two boys and living in South Derbyshire. I am a mentored doula and I am passionate about parents receiving the support that they need from the very beginning and into the early years.

I am a breastfeeding peer supporter with personal experience in tandem feeding and I love wearing both of my boys in a carrier. I have had a great range of experiences during my own parenting journey, from a hospital birth to a home birth, combi-feeding and exclusively breastfeeding. Ultimately I can relate to navigating through the unknown territories of becoming parents, especially as I am still in the thick of it!

As your doula I will be a consistent presence to support and nurture you throughout your pregnancy, birth and postpartum period. I will help you emotionally, practically and informationally to empower and inform yourself to make the decisions that are right for you.

Pregnancy Support

From the first trimester to the last, I offer emotional and informational support to help you feel confident and prepared for the arrival of your little one(s).

Birth Support

I will support and encourage you to prepare for the birth you want and I will be the gatekeeper of your birth preferences. I will be by your side throughout your labour whether that is at home or in hospital, vaginal birth or c-section.

Postpartum Support

Recovering from birth and adjusting to life with a newborn can be challenging. I offer personalised postpartum support to help you navigate this new chapter with confidence. I truly believe that consistent support in those early weeks and months can make the world of difference to how you experience them.

Kind Words

Just having the support and knowledge they provided really helped me to believe in myself and free birth on my own and have the support before and after was perfect and gave me the free birth at home in the pool with my family that I dreamed of I wish every women knew how they are capable of this and how empowering if feels thank you for all your support Ellie you're such a beautiful kind soul xx


Ellie has always provided me with resources and recommendations that have been spot on.
When I needed information, she knew where to find the answer.
When I needed to rant, she was on the phone and understanding.
When I needed reassurance, she would be my cheerleader.
I feel Ellie has excellent instincts as to what needs to be said or not said. She always made me feel better about the path I was on and I have felt supported throughout my pregnancy with her there.

I’d give Ellie 10 out of 10!
Her instincts are great, she always seemed to know what I needed even if I didn’t know it myself.
She has paid really good attention to the little seemingly insignificant remarks I’ve made and as a result I really feel she’s paid attention to the fullest extent.
I’ve always felt like she was there, ready to jump into the thick of it, without getting distracted. Trying to provide information, support and encouragement. She’s been full of empathy and passion for the very best experience and outcome for me and baby.
By being there she freed up my husband to be there for me 100% whilst making him feel seen and heard too.


Ellie is so knowledgeable and passionate about what she does and it was invaluable having her support throughout pregnancy and birth. She helped us to feel empowered leading up to the birth and gave me strength during a challenging birth. I'll always be grateful that we had her with us.
