First of all, thankyou for visiting my site. My name is Letitia and I'm a birth worker based in South Liverpool.
Following the birth of my first baby in 2015 I felt inspired to help mothers who need someone impartial to inform, advocate and support them before, during and after the birthing process as this was something I found hard to do at the time.
My second child's birth informed my work further, as it was a home birth turned emergency cesarean. Many elements of this birth were traumatic, and this inspired me to set up Liverpool Birth Trauma Support, a peer led group that meet monthly to have a chat, share stories and eat cake! It also gives me the drive to further advocate for those caught up in position whereby a former trauma is affecting the way they view birth.
I am an independent Doula and I am a Breastfeeding Peer Supporter, I love supporting mums in their choices, whatever they may be and allowing them to achieve their goals with regards to infant feeding.
I also spent 2019-2021 as a maternity support worker for the NHS, this role allowed me to keep my knowledge and practice up to date on a holistic and supportive level. I now hold a position within a Specialist Perinatal MH team as a full time Physical Health Practitioner, this limits some of the Doula based commitments I can provide right now, but in this role, I am constantly learning and upskilling, once again in an holistic environment.
I pride myself on being as approachable as possible and love to chat about my services with no obligation, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me
