a doula combining Science and spirituality, research and Intuition..

About

I am a mother of two, a doula and doula mentor for Doula UK.  I am passionate about improving the birth experience and early motherhood for other women. My main focus is to combine the best scientific evidence with alternative techniques to enable a woman and couple to birth intact, physically, emotionally and spiritually and to start parenthood with a loving bond with their child.

I have an interest in the design of birthing rooms, in evidence based practice, research and optimal foetal positioning.

I run a homebirth support group, organise a yearly retreat for doulas in the UK, have worked as a reviewer with the NMC.

My first degree was in Marine Biology and previously I worked as a Secondary school science teacher before doing an MPH at John Moores, Liverpool.

In my spare time I am helping to build a 36 foot steel yacht. I enjoy reading, writing poetry and running, travelling and being in nature.

    Hi Selina, do you work with overdue mums to help induce labour naturally? I’m booked in for induction on Monday and want to do all possible to prompt natural birth before then… Very grateful if you can get in touch. Many thanks! Nicola
