“Fern's intuition is amazing. Without any words, she knew exactly what I needed, when and how to touch or massage me and when to step back. I couldn't have had a more blissful birth and Fern played a huge part in it. For me, "doula-ing" is an act of love. And Fern sure has plenty of it. She was incredibly caring and so genuine, it was a joy to have her by my side and I feel so grateful to her for protecting my daughter's and my space so that I could birth her the way I wanted to. ”
Sabine, London.
“Being pregnant with our first child I was nervous about birth especially towards the end of the pregnancy. Within the first few minutes of meeting Fern, I knew we have found the right person. Fern's birth support was amazing. Without her, I wouldn't have had the same birth experience as I had (birth pool with only gas/air and no problems). ”
A, London.
“Words cannot explain how Fern's presence and support helped before during and after the birth of our little prince. During labour, she was there from the very beginning, early morning, she helped with massaging, breathing and was a great listener too, we couldn't ask for a better doula. Fern is gifted, just by looking at her eyes you can see that she is doing her job with love and passion, giving it all that she has, can't recommend her enough’. ”
Olga, Watford, Herts
“Fern was my doula for the home birth of my third child. I could write hundreds of words how her presence took my birthing experience to another level, but I will stick with 'she was my rock' and I rocked my labour thanks to her. When I think of Fern, I also think of character from Peter Pan. The big sister... She was like a sister to me there and then. Using the right touch, positive language and protecting my birth choices all the way through. She believed in me - as big sisters do - and surrounded me and my family with wonderful and loving energy. I cannot thank her enough. Her presence was the best present our family received this year. Well, second best right after arrival of our little one ;).”
Meera, Kings Langley, Herts
“I decided to engage Fern's doula services because my husband was working abroad during the week and we wanted to ensure I had the support if he couldn't arrive for the birth in time. Luckily I went into labour on a Saturday but we had warmed to Fern so much that we had decided to have her present through the birth regardless. I would recommend Fern's doula service to anyone, she prepared me well before the birth and she was able to ensure that I was calm and supported throughout the birth process and consequently I had a much more positive birthing experience the second time around!”
Sarah, Welwyn Garden City, Herts.
“Fern helped us for the first few weeks after the arrival of our twins. She was a great support, really flexible and happy to do whatever she could - which was a great help while I was recovering and finding my feet. ”
Laura, Bourne End, Herts.
“Fern was invaluable during her two weeks that she spent with me and my 6 week old son, George. Due to complications with a c-section delivery, I was pretty useless and couldn't drive or do much for myself. Fern was a daily highlight as she helped to take us for our 8 week check ups and suggested trying a couple of baby groups. Fern made me lunch and cups of tea and took over when I needed to rest. Fern was incredibly efficient in her time with us and even tackled the kitchen drawers which were full of rubbish and hadn't been sorted since we moved. George absolutely adored Fern and we were able to strike up a fantastic rapport. Highly recommended and would not hesitate to hire again. Maybe next time for the birth experience!”
Zahra, Potters Bar, Herts.
“I was looking for someone to give me postnatal support, because I had c-section and I didn't have any family in UK. I needed someone to help me out and also support me emotionally. Fern is a really nice and kind hearted woman, who supported me in all aspects, she is warm and I could connect with her easily.”
Beth, Rickmansworth, Herts.
“With a very alert baby who didn't sleep well during the day, I was struggling when my husband went back to work after the first few weeks. This is when I found Fern. Despite the late notice Fern managed to pop over for a few hours a day to watch Chloe and allow me to put my head down for a much needed kip, or bring in the washing which had been on the line for days! She is very friendly and natural with babies, I'd definitely recommend her postnatal services (And she also makes a good cuppa!).”
