Hello! I’m Angela
Owner of Mother Nurtured Doula Services
I’m Angela, the owner of Mother Nurtured Doula Services; a full spectrum doula and wellness service, providing full-spectrum reproductive care to women.
As women we undergo key challenges in life: trying to conceive, pregnancy, motherhood, pregnancy loss, menstruation, and menopause. All of these can be emotional and physically demanding times and can sometimes leave us feeling disjointed. As a full spectrum doula there is nothing that brings me more joy than working with women and their families helping them to feel empowered, supported, and informed as you embrace each new stage of life.
I am a mum to 2 little boys, Thomas and James, 2 sleeping angels that I sadly lost to miscarriage and 2 grown up step children. Over the last decade I have learned a great deal from deeply personal matters such as pregnancy loss, birth trauma, postnatal depression, adoption and adoption depression and now menopause. All of this has opened both my heart and my mind (and with lots of training), I believe this has fully equipped me to best serve women, mothers and their families.
I work with women and families from all backgrounds and life experiences including LGBTG families and single mothers. I am committed to ensuring all women have the information and support they deserve.
My Approach & Values
In my work with birth, I focus on making certain that women have all the information they need to make informed choices during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum and support them to have a positive birth experience.

"I have recently completed the 3 step rewind programme with Angela following a difficult birth. I was completely comfortable to discuss what had happened and to work through the process with Angela, who is calming, reassuring and non-judgmental. I found the guided relaxation and visualisation helped hugely to process the experience and to move forward from it. I would recommend to anyone who has been through a traumatic birth experience"
"I had a closing of bones ceremony with Angela and invited my closest friends and family. It was so special, Angela held the space for us and whilst I was having the treatment my friends wrote and drew beautiful messages on pebbles for my baby ❤The treatment itself was lovely, being wrapped up feeling safe and nurtured with all loved ones around me. At the end we had a meditation guided by Angela which was so relaxing for us all, including my little man 😍 he was then wrapped up in the scarves with me. It was an emotional, beautiful experience and I highly recommend Angela. Thank you for such a special time for us all 💜"
"I had a lovely pregnancy class for 6 weeks, very calming and relaxing, while at the same time empowering and informative! Met some lovely women and Angela, who’s passion and expertise were a joy to listen to every week. Thanks 🙏"
"Angela’s classes were extremely helpful and I would highly recommend them. Not only did I find them educational and non-judgmental, but also relaxing and useful. We were able to practise a variety of breathing techniques useful for birthing baby and learn different yoga poses to help with pregnancy! Plus I learnt so much about positive birthing and received so many tips, I feel like I would have missed out, had I not attended. To top it off, I met a great bunch of ladies who are becoming friends!"
"The only class I’ve gone back to over and over again. I’ve tried so many classes but they’ve never been for us. The daisy baby classes try different things suited for all babies. It’s one of my favourite things ever to watch Lily during the listening part smiling away and with the parachute 😍. All the other mums are great as well! It’s so welcoming and you never feel uncomfortable if your baby is crying or needs a feed. Sad that it’ll be our last term!"
"I’ve attended the pregnancy and baby classes with both my son and daughter. I have absolutely loved them and can’t recommend Angela enough. She is always there to offer support and advice in a non judgemental way. They are definitely the ‘must go’ pregnancy/baby classes. Thank you Angela"
