Mothering the Mother is a Doula organisation, all about supporting new and expectant families from conception to beyond. Offering confidential, emotional and practical support. Supplying evidence based information so that families can make informed decisions that best suit them.
Mothering the Mother does not mean ‘smothering the mother’. Information empowers, facts give choices and, as a result, allow for informed decision making.
The aim at Mothering the Mother is to make birthing as positive an experience as possible by providing evidence based information and working together to take the fear out of pregnancy, birth and motherhood. Fear which often stems from the unknown or not knowing what to expect. This is achieved through the encouragement of nurturing oneself first; by providing emotional and practical support in the run up to conception, during pregnancy, labour and birth, and, last but not least, during the postnatal period.
