Kayla is a Birth Doula who works across S.W. London with her primary hospitals being Chelsea & Westminster and St Georges. She can also support you at Kingston, St Helliers and St Thomas’s and also advocates home births as a wonderful experience for the right people.
Hello! I have always loved babies and after travelling the world as a Norland Maternity Nurse, I settled down in London to be a solo mum. My sons birth wasn’t the easiest and when I discovered Doulas I thought I could really help women to have a better experience than I had.
I trained as a Birth Doula and now have eleven years of experience working both privately in South West London and part-time on the Birth Centre at Chelsea & Westminster hospital. I was one of the first ever doulas employed by the NHS eight years ago and I believe the vast experience I have gained in all fields of maternity care (including my ten years as a maternity nurse) is of benefit to my private clients. I enjoy the continuity and connection with the pregnant couples; from the initial meeting, the antenatal meetings, the birth right through to the postnatal time.
I believe that having a baby is a truly unique, wonderful and life changing experience which should be both cherished and a happy memory for life. To help you achieve this my aim is simple – caring, supporting and empowering you throughout the pregnancy and entire labour, providing both consistency and calmness along this wondrous journey.

"After working with Kayla for a number of years on the Birth Centre, I could not recommend her more highly. As a midwife, we like to know that our clients are well supported in labour in order to allow this natural process to run more smoothly. Kayla is very skilled, witty, passionate and extremely professional; making labour and birth an even more wonderful event. I have witnessed firsthand the benefit of Kayla's calming presence at hundreds of births. You will definitely not regret choosing Kayla as your doula; you will feel like you have gained a new member to your family, in addition to your new bundle!"

"My husband was away on business when I went into early labour at 36 weeks. After a quick phone call to Kayla (who was not officially on call for me and it was 4am!!) she was with me before I really knew what was happening. Getting a doula was the best decision I ever made and I would not hesitate to recommend Kayla. She was kind, calm and caring and I really felt that she was fighting my corner through-out the whole birth process. I just hope she is available when I decide to have No.2!"

"With Kayla at the birth of my second and third babies I felt truly safe, supported and listened to - all the things that I hadn't felt in my first birth. She has the gift of knowing when to step in and when to step back, bringing a knowledgeable calm to a very charged situation. I don't intend to have any more babies, but if I did, I wouldn't hesitate to ask for her services again and highly recommend her to anyone who is about to give birth."
