Postnatal Doula – Emotional And Practical Support After Birth – North London

Hiring Eleonora as our postnatal doula was one of the best decisions we have ever made! We don’t have family in London and when I ended up having a c-section we immediately called Eleonora to come and help us. She was such a wonderful presence; not intrusive and just incredibly supportive. She helped us with household tasks, laundry, cooked us really delicious meals but most importantly she provided us with great emotional support in the early weeks. I had a lot of problems establishing breastfeeding and was very emotional following a difficult period in hospital; Eleonora helped me work through these issues and gave me practical advice to help with feeding (I have now been exclusively breastfeeding for over four months). She also has lots of tips and suggestions for local groups, baby equipment, etc. We couldn’t recommend Eleonora enough.

Postnatal Doula – Making Sense of Conflicting Advice – Hertfordshire

I hired Eleonora as my postnatal doula. I was overwhelmed with all the conflicting advice from midwives, health visitors, books and friends and was confused as to how best I should look after my new baby. Eleonora helped me develop the confidence to rely on my own instincts, and I genuinely feel that I am a better mum because I am less anxious now and much more able to enjoy my daughter.

Birth Doula – Chingford London

We Hired Eleonora as our Birth Doula. She was a great help during pregnancy and labour with massage and relaxation techniques. She respected and supported our choices helping us to understand options, but without trying to change our decisions. Postnatally she was also caring and kind and we loved her presence. We plan to relocate abroad but would love to use her Doula services again if we were to stay in London. Highly recommend

Birth Postnatal Doula Support – Crouch End London

We hired Eleonora as a birth doula for the arrival of our second daughter Frieda in May 2014 and also for post-natal support. We really couldn’t be happier and she has been invaluable in helping us have the birth we wanted and for me to have an enjoyable, relaxed first few weeks at home with the newborn. What I think is most remarkable about Eleonora is her unique combination of empathy and discretion whilst also being extremely knowledgeable, practical and assertive if needed. We felt very comfortable with her from the first meeting and worked through preparing for a potentially tricky labour – a VBAC in hospital (UCLH). With excellent support from my partner and Eleonora, I delivered a healthy baby girl with only gas & air and minor tearing. There were multiple suggestions for medical interventions but my birth partners helped me stay strong, confident and ‘in the zone’ throughout labour. As a post natal doula Eleonora’s help with cooking beautiful healthy food (and yes, the occasional cake!) and giving gentle restorative massages has been superb, and the whole family appreciates the food and chilled out mummy. So, I may just have to keep having babies to have Eleonora around
