I strongly feel that every birthing mama needs a safe and caring environment to enable her to have a good and dignified birth. I therefore volunteer for two wonderful charities that are work tirelessly to make birth a better experience for under privileged women both in the UK and overseas.
The Doula UK Access Fund
The Doula UK Access Fund covers the expenses of Doula UK doulas volunteering to work with local clients in financial hardship, enabling those on a very low income to have the support of a doula.
