My name is Caron Smith and I am the proud mother of three young adults, living together with our boxer puppy in Essex. I originally qualified as a midwife, having trained at Kings College University and previously worked at St Thomas' Hospital, London.
However for more than ten years now I have offered my services as a Doula, supporting over 200 families to date. In this role - whilst I no longer provide any clinical care - I am delighted to be able to utilise my extensive experience and my absolute passion. I feel honoured to be able to offer individualised practical and emotional support through pregnancy, birth and those irreplaceable first days and weeks as families learn to care for and bond with their precious new arrival (s), and settle into their new identities as parents.
I am able to offer a complete birth support package, postnatal only packages or a combination of both. I also offer private birth/parenthood preparation sessions for clients who haven't found or prefer not to attend group classes. Please click on the links below to find out more:
