Holding Hands


Practical, informative and emotional doula support services.

Caring for you during pregnancy, birth, and early parenthood.

Lorraine is a certified pregnancy, birth and postnatal doula, certified birth photographer and birth educator supporting families in and around Leeds and Manchester and virtually across the UK. Lorraine has cared for a diverse number of clients with compassion and a tenacity to improve the birthing experience for all. 

"I believe every woman and birthing person deserves to have a positive experience on their journey to becoming a parent, no matter who they are and how they choose to birth and nurture their babies."

Whether it be supporting you to plan your homebirth or helping you to recover after your Caesarean birth, Lorraine will be there to give you the support you want and deserve whilst helping you to feel empowered along the way.


I am unhesitatingly happy to recommend Lorraine as the Doula to help support you through a mindful, confident birth and all the pregnancy support you need!
I have found her support critically important as a space for discussion and reflection as I have grown closer to full term."
