“Angela manged to instil confidence in my wife and brightened up our home with her happy uplifting character. Cannot imagine how we would have coped in those early months without her”
“I would recommend Ange to anyone. She is down-to-earth, open minded, kind and very experienced. She gave me the kind of practical advice and support I really needed when trying to establish breastfeeding and deal with conflicting advice from midwives and health visitors. She was great company and made me laugh when I really needed it. Her support was particularly valuable as I am a single mother and was struggling with breastfeeding after a c section, with a baby with jaundice and above average weight loss after birth. Without the benefit of a partner, it was invaluable to have Ange there to listen to my concerns and to discuss options in an open minded way. In the end I successfully established breastfeeding.”
From Elephant and Castle
“Ange has been a great help to me emotionally. I didn't really expect to need a lot of emotional support, but I needed more than i had expected. She is always upbeat and I felt a sense of relief each morning as she arrived. I was able to talk through any issues worrying me and she gave me advice when I asked for it, but never pushed me in one childcare direction, just gently guiding me. I think emotional support is one of Ange's key strengths.”
From South Hampstead
"Angie lifted my spirits in some of my toughest nights with my new born. She is real, genuine, caring and experienced. Her knowledge provided comfort and she taught me quickly to deal with facts and not let the worries in my head grow out of control. Angie also helped without being asked, she sterilised, tidied, organised and took control so that I got rest I needed and put routine around expressing, feeding and looking after myself. Angie is always at the end of the phone and made me howl laughing and comfort me when I cried. On top of all of this her flexibility is what every mum needs and many aren’t able to find. I look forward to bringing Angie into future stages of my daughters life when I need help or guidance through them."
From Muswell Hill
"I met a number of doulas on my hunt for one to support me post birth. I got a good vibe from Ange within 2 minutes of meeting her and my instincts were right. Ange was so helpful in those early weeks. Non judgemental, reassuring, helpful and ultimately caring. She was wonderful on all levels and I’d highly recommend her."
"Angie had looked after me and my two sons in 2017 and more recently. She is a brilliant doula: an excellent carer, very gentle and sweet with my babies and very perceptive - Angie helped me understand my sons’ needs and gave me excellent tips for breastfeeding and for improving their sleep."
