Postpartum Doula Care
I'm Natalie, the face behind Mother Nurture. I'm here because I'm passionate about how new mothers are nurtured and celebrated after the birth of their child.
I specialise in providing all round postpartum care for new mothers on their transition in to motherhood. I cover three main areas of support; emotional, practical, and parenting; covering the five key pillars of optimum postpartum care.
Raw, compelling, and hopefully insightful, my blogs aim to share my research and passions within this space, as well as personal journeys, including my own, in to motherhood.

WHAT IS A DOULA?
"A doula \DOO-luh\ offers emotional , practical and signposting support to someone before, during, and after childbirth"
The term doula originates from the Greek term, doule, meaning to serve. Typically associated with births, the world of the postpartum doula is just opening up to the mainstream. Whilst in traditional communities across the world, to serve and nurture a new mother postpartum is the norm, here in the West it is a forgotten ritual.
A postpartum doula typically provides emotional and practical support to new mothers and families, providing bespoke services depending on what that family needs after the birth of their child.
