Maria Machin – Family Doula Scarborough

Hope Anchors The Soul

About me

I am a mum to 7 children, I have had various voluntary roles surrounding antenatal and post natal care for 6 years with a keen interest in breastfeeding.
I am a facilitator for our local Attachment Parenting UK group and a regional coordinator.
I am an Association of Breastfeeding mothers – Mother supporter and trainee counsellor
I am very passionate about nurturing from the beginning and giving a continuity of care.
I want women to feel empowered by their own body and know that I am there to listen and advocate them.
I will provide information and enable you to make informed choices so your transition into motherhood is as smooth as possible
I will hold your space and be your voice if you require me, or I can simply hold your hand, protecting your space, for you to birth freely.
I can link you to birth preparation classes, massage and holistic care that I’ve personally encountered and can recommend.

Postnatal –
I can offer as many sessions as you require, sometimes just a few reassurance meets is sufficient, doing some meal making or simply coming with you as you venture outside.
I will be here to help emotionally and practically as you wish to have a positive start with your new family.

*Packages can be tailored made to suit

“It is possible to create the birth space you want, with strong anchors you are able to weather any storm”
