Ways to work with me...
A quick guide on how I can support you.

Please find detailed below a quick guide to my full offerings with links to further information on each.

Doula Support

I offer numerous ways of supporting those that would like to work with me which includes non-judgmental emotional and practical support:

Photography

Photography is another passion of mine which lights me up. I'm often happy to provide photography services for all sorts of occasions and events so please do get in touch if you have something in mind.

I generally photograph the follow types of sessions; Pregnancy; Motherhood/Fatherhood/Parenthood;  Family; Newborn; Lovers; Branding; Portraiture; Events and of course Birth.

Please note that birth photography is only available to clients also choosing me as their Birth Doula.

Mentoring

Doula Mentoring

As an experienced Doula who has supported dozens of families during fertility treatment; loss; pregnancies, births as well as postnatally, I'm able to provide ongoing support for newer Doula's who require it whether that be through debriefs or for more business support. I'm adept at holding space as well as providing sound advice when required and I love to Doula other Doula's on their own journeys.

Business Support:

As a successful business owner for almost 10 years, I have a wealth of experience in setting up a business as well as advice on how to go about running it.

If you are interested in mentoring with me, please get in touch via the contact form or email abbyhopewell.doula@gmail.com

Babywearing

I'm an experienced babywearing consultant who has supported hundreds of families to carry their babies safely, During these sessions, we look at how to use slings safely (yours or mine) and ensure you can confidently use it solo. I have a selection of slings to try which are also available to hire which does include options for twins, too.

I have successfully supported many families to carry when the wearer and/or the baby have disabilities and/or other considerations; please reach out if you're unsure.

Holistic Healing Services

As a healing practitioner, I help to create the most optimal environment and conditions to facilitate your own healing by;

  • Moving energy around your body as well as unblocking and clearing that energy

  • Helping to surface buried trauma so that it can be processed and integrated

  • Providing support

This is done by using techniques such as:

 

You can book here.

Alternative healing also includes:

  • Closing the Bones; part massage and part ritual; it's a gorgeous ceremony to honour and aid recovery.

  • The 3 Step Rewind; The 3 Step Rewind is a guide to reprogramme our traumatic experiences into something we feel more comfortable with, specifically in relation to birth related trauma.

Celebrant

Mother/Parent Blessings

A Mother or Parent Blessing is a​ mother or parent centred event that celebrates, nurtures and honours our (their friends, family and community’s) commitment to them as they enter parenthood, whether it’s for the first time or for the tenth! It's a parent focused alternative to a baby shower.
