A story of self belief and the consistent support of a Doula – a lovely review x

The Birth of Baby Zach

“I first met Lexi just over two weeks before I was due to give birth to my third baby. I’d had 2 traumatic deliveries previously and was determined to have a lovely birth this time round, however was feeling very anxious! After posting on a local Facebook group for relaxation ideas (and a bit of help!)

Lexi got in contact and I’m so glad she did. She suggested a few ideas to help enforce the hypnobirthing that I’d already started at home and soon after speaking to her I was very interested in her doula service as an extra to help give me the birth that I was so desperate for.

From the moment she came to my house for a meeting I felt so at ease, she is so knowledgeable and instantly gave me the confidence and calm that I needed. Prior to my booked induction I attended some of the pregnancy relaxation classes Lexi holds and they really did help me focus on the end goal of holding my baby. Knowing that my birth would potentially be complicated I had a lot of fear and anxiety, however, Lexi gave me so much positivity and when induction day arrived I felt completely prepared and ready to face the journey.

During my labour Lexi really was incredible, she was so attentive and knew just what I needed even before I did. Any time I had a slight wobble when it wasn’t going to plan she kept me on track and focused on all the hard work and hypnobirthing I’d done to prepare and as a result I had the most incredible and empowering birth.

She gave me the confidence to believe in myself and I truly believe it would have been a completely different story had we not have met. Since the birth Lexi has continued to be a support with breastfeeding at her wonderful drop in sessions and other services offered at the Nest.

For anyone considering having Lexi as a doula, do it! My only regret is that I didn’t find her sooner!

Thank you so much Lexi for everything, you really are amazing at what you do and we will be forever grateful .. xx”
