Hello my name is Hanna!
I live with my husband Gavin and our two daughters, Tehya Jemima and Lolah Blue, we live in Cornwall. We have two crazy and very lovable rescue dogs Lara and Leo! We have a large and wonderful extended family that we all adore and are very close to. Gavin’s sister and three of my five siblings have children, the cousins are much loved by each other and they are wonderful friends. So, all in all we are very blessed!
I am deeply passionate about family, friendship, community and village! I am an advocate of support and building supportive networks, I feel strongly that we function at our best as a ‘part’ of something bigger than just ‘ourselves’.
I am dedicated to supporting families and love the stories of ‘wise women – great aunties’ (stories sadly lost in Western culture today) who live as part of a wider community; offering support, knowledge, guidance and love!
In my role as pregnancy, birth and postnatal doula / child-birth companion the concept of the ‘wise woman – great aunt’ is at the center of everything I do. Bringing the families, I work with; my knowledge, a wealth of evidence-based research and literature from my library, my experience, my expertise, my compassion, my heart, a listening ear, someone to laugh with but also if necessary a shoulder to cry on. I am your champion and advocate if necessary.
I read a quote in a wonderful article some time ago, the doula described herself as ‘a silent ninja’. I love that idea; a silent ninja doula!
