More about Catherine

Catherine is a mother of 3 children, aged 13, 10 and 4 years old. Her second two were both born at home. Catherine's eldest son was born in hospital with barely any intervention, but she felt that she had to 'fight her corner' to achieve that. Catherine feels that the safest place for a woman to give birth is where she feels safest and, although birth doesn't always go to plan, it's really important to know what you're aiming for. Catherine trained as a doula with Relaxed Birth & Parenting in 2008 (inspired by her daughter's birth, which she found an incredibly positive experience). Catherine has been attending births, both at home and in hospital, since. Catherine's role as a doula is to reassure, to hold, both emotionally and physically, to be kind and patient, respectful and supportive.
