About The Postnatal Doula

Grace Williams

The Postnatal Doula

As a Postnatal Doula, I provide love and support. I am part of the village of people supporting a Mother or Birthing Person alongside a partner, family, friends, Health Care Professionals, Doulas, Complementary Therapists etc.

 

I visit you in your home, providing practical and emotional support. Some of the things I can provide include:

  • A listening ear to discuss your birth experience and any parenting issues,

  • Helping you settle into life with a newborn,

  • Cooking nutritious plant-based meals for you to nourish and heal,

  • Wash and sort the laundry, load and empty the dishwasher, do light housework,

  • Know who to go to for expert advice and guidance in relation to you and your baby,

  • Wear your baby in a wrap whilst you get time to shower, nap, or drink a hot cup of tea.

I trained with Younique Postnatal in 2018 and in the same year I trained as a Breastfeeding Peer Supporter with Healthy Babies UK. I joined Badass Births in 2020.

I live in Teignbridge, Devon with my husband, our three daughters and Roxy the rescue dog. 

​We moved to Devon around nine years ago to live life by the sea, away from both our families. In 2013 I gave birth to our first daughter in a local midwife-led unit and made a relatively smooth transition into Motherhood.

 

In 2015 I had a wonderful home water birth for our second daughter. This time around, I really struggled with Motherhood and often felt extremely lonely and isolated, even though I had the unfaltering support of my husband and friends around me.​

In 2019 I had another wonderful home birth and completed our family with another baby girl. I gifted myself a slow recovery. I observed a slow pace of life for 12 weeks after birth, nested down with my baby girl, ate delicious and nourishing food and kept visitors to a bare minimum. This gave me the best start to Mothering a third time round than I could have wished for. I felt rested, content, happy and myself.

We’re also a veggie/vegan family and have been since 2018. I love how nutritious and healing plant-based food is. It’s also delicious! I am excited to share some of my favourite recipes with you when I provide you with meals in your home.
