I'm Grace. 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 so excited to be sharing some of my favourite recipes with you when I provide you with meals in your home.
My Doula Journey
A few of my favourite things...
I wanted to be a Doula to enable other women to have the right support and build good foundations for their journey through Motherhood. I completed my training with Younique Postnatal and am currently going through the Doula UK recognition process.
I am also a Breastfeeding Peer Supporter, having trained with Healthy Babies UK.
