Welcome to my website and congratulations on your pregnancy!
My name is Anne Glover and I am a certified birth and postnatal doula supporting families in Northern Ireland. I trained with Nurturing Birth in June 2015 and I am registered and recognised as a birth and postnatal doula with Doula UK, the leading network of doulas in UK, and a doula mentor. I am also a certified HypnoBirthing Childbirth Practitioner and I believe my training will never end as I will continue to learn and gain valuable experience with every mummy I support.
Family life is and always has been very important to me. My interest in birth and babies stems from my own experience as a mother of 3, childminding, leading Mother and Toddler groups and creches. Since being a birth partner for my sister, I feel passionate about helping women achieve the kind of birth experience they desire, whatever that might be. It has been my personal experiences and my passion that have drawn me to birth and post natal support for pregnant women and their partners.
My role as your doula is to support you practically and emotionally during one of the most life-changing and precious experiences in your life. Memories of birthing your baby will stay with you forever and that is why it is so important to have a satisfying and positive birth experience. As your doula, I will help you to prepare for the birth, empower you to make informed decisions, discuss your expectations and your parenting preferences.
I abide by Doula UK’s Philosophy and Code of Practice, as well as the Nurturing Birth’s Code of Practice. I am also trained as a Family Support Volunteer with TinyLife and I have a successful Enhanced NI Check. I am a member of both AIMS and Birthrights. I am also the area representative for Doula UK.
I’m also delighted to offer the hire of a birthing pool and the hire of the cub birthing stool as part of my services.
Please feel free to contact me anytime with any questions you may have.
