A bit about me and why I became a Doula & Holistic Sleep Coach...
Hello my name is Desiree,
I live in a small village in North Warnborough near Odiham in Hampshire with my husband Graeme, our three children and our two dogs.
My passion for sleep started once I became a mum myself nearly 10 years ago and struggled with the lack of sleep and (as any new parent or seasoned one can relate too!) the copious amounts of misleading information surrounding it. Sleep deprivation and exhaustion is taxing on all levels and affects the entire family structure. I was incredibly fortunate to have such amazing birth and postnatal support when I first became a mother that I wanted to offer that non judgemental, invaluable, 'it takes a village' nurturing based care to new and seasoned families too, so I started my journey of as a Birth and Postnatal doula with Doula UK. I am passionate about families being supported emotionally, mentally and physically.
As a Recognised Birth and Postnatal Doula, I met many families that struggled with sleep and I wanted to support families in a gentle, respectful way and found The Holistic Sleep Coaching Program (an evidence based, scientific look at sleep and gentle, sleep strategies) really mirrored the values and ethos that I so strongly care about. Having completed the course I am now a OCN Level 5 Certified Holistic Sleep Coach.
Aside from being a Recognised Birth & Postnatal Doula with Doula UK, I am also an active service user at my local Hampshire Maternity Voices Partnership which exists to improve maternity services for women, babies and birth partners.
I have a current advanced DBS
