We have Doulas across the UK. Doulas in Lancashire, Cumbria, North Yorkshire, Wigan, Manchester, Liverpool, Cheshire and further. Stop your search for a ”Doula near me”, we may just have a Doula for you. Our Doulas in the UK often provide discounted and free support to all. Maybe you’re looking for a birth doula or a postnatal doula, we are always growing.
We also have perinatal counsellors.
All these below can provide support remotely.

I founded Snowdrop way back in 2011. I was a young, single mum and recognised a real need for more to be done to support women in pregnancy and beyond. You’ll find me doing bits of everything. Away from writing funding bids and attending meetings, I am a counsellor/ psychotherapist and spend most my week supporting women in that capacity. You’ll also find me running some antenatal and postnatal classes, our training and answering phone calls Although things have changed a bit since I first became a mum, the same issues still exists and I remain passionate to bring the changes needed. I always have ideas of what Snowdrop could do and my ideas often have to be reigned back in (much to my protests). Because I am not busy enough I am completing a doctorate in psychotherapy which is around motherhood. In my life away from Snowdrop, (rare!) I have 3 children ( 2 are teenagers and I think we need Doulas for parents of teenagers!) and a husband (who you will see driving the van), we bought a touring caravan in lockdown and are keen to actually use it this year.
Ps, the glasses…migraines… I try styling it out now.
Jen is one of our original Doulas we found when we received our large lottery grant back in 2017. We knew she’d fit right in when in interview we carried on talking way past allocated time as if we already knew each other. She now does a bit of everything. You’ll find her in our Accrington shop, café, delivering birth pools and more. With a background in nursing, Jen is a mother of 4 and her husband, Nick, can sometimes be found helping out too. She is one of the most friendliest people you’ll meet, with a beautiful soul.
