Birth and postnatal Doula based in Cambridgeshire
I met Jo when my son was 5 days old at a breastfeeding support group as I was struggling in the first few days of feeding and needed help. From the moment I met Jo, I could see how caring she was and passionate about all things feeding. I went to a different group 2 days later for more support where Jo volunteered and continued to go there for support and the social side for months after. Jo gave me advice on changing positions, pumping through my son having to go onto high-calorie milk due to a heart condition and also him having heart surgery at 4 months. Our breastfeeding journey has come to an end after nearly 19 months, and I am so grateful I met Jo as I honestly think without her knowledge, support and genuine passion for feeding I would have given up in those early days.

Jo is nothing short of a completely exceptional woman. She was born to support women and this shines through in absolutely everything she does. Her love, care and attention to your well-being is honestly, second to none. Her depth of knowledge, calming presence and attention to every detail that matters to you, is incredible. Jo explores avenues that you may not have even known were an option, yet somehow you never feel like you’re not in the driving seat. One of the things that struck me so much about Jo, is how much she wants you to have the best possible experience, and she never stopped fighting for us and our baby, even when we lost our voice. For anybody reading this who is considering Jo as their Doula, my simple advice would be do not hesitate, to be in Jo’s company is to be in the presence of something truly special.

Jo did such a wonderful job looking after both baby and parents during our time together. You can tell that this is more than just a job for Jo - she is such a caring person that being a doula was likely not a choice: she had to be one. We will forever be grateful for the work she did, even if we were jealous of her magic abilities to put our daughter to sleep.
