DOULA & HYPNOBIRTHING
Birth and Postnatal Doula and Hypnobirthing Instructor in Berkshire, South Oxfordhire and North Hampshire
Whether you are interested in birth or postnatal doula services or hypnobirthing classes, I can provide the emotional, educational and physical support you may need throughout your pregnancy, labour and postnatal period.
a little bit about me
My name is Nuria Pozas, I'm a Birth and Postnatal Doula and Hypnobirthing Instructor based in Reading, Berkshire. Pregnancy and motherhood had a profound effect on my life - back in 2013, pregnant with my son I found about doulas and highly benefited from having this wonderful accompaniment. The love and support I received, together with my birth experience and posterior postnatal weeks helped me discover my true passion. I found myself willing to accompany and support other women in their motherhood journeys, with love, compassion and non judgmental support.
It was in 2014 that I decided to train with Michel Odent and Liliana Lammers as a Birth and Postnatal Doula (Paramana Doula training) and left my career as a Quality Engineer.
Through my work as a doula, I learnt how hypnobirthing can make a difference, so I trained as a hypnobirthing teacher in 2018 and joined The Little Birth Company as a hypnobirthing instructor.
As part of my continuous development, I am now training in Perinatal Mental Health with the European Institute of Perinatal Mental Health.
As your Doula, I will work by your side as you prepare to give birth; present in each moment with a spirit of love and compassion.
I will offer you non judgmental support and will encourage you to follow your instincts and wishes – I’ll be by your side however you want to live your experience.
When a baby is born (be it the first or subsequent!) a new family is born – and as well as an exciting and a very special time it can also look a bit hectic and intense.
As your postnatal doula I’ll focus on helping you make a smooth transition into motherhood.
The Complete Hypnobirthing Programme
The Little Birth Company’s Hypnobirthing Programme is a complete Birth Preparation Programme aimed at supporting you to plan for a calm, confident & positive birth.
I draw on my experience as a birth doula having accompanied numerous and varied births and teaching one to one hypnobirthing to many families.
Pregnancy Relaxation Programme
A wonderful weekly class giving you the space and time to connect with other pregnant women, learn some wonderful tools and techniques and of course relax.
It's a great complement to your hypnobirthing practice!
The Hypnobirthing Workshop
The Hypnobirthing Workshop is based on the Little Birth Company’s Hypnobirthing Programme aimed at supporting you to plan for a calm, confident & positive birth.
This Hypnobirthing Class is ideal if you want to add the "hypno" bit, but may have booked your antenatal preparation somewhere else.
Positive Caesarean Workshop
The Positive Caesarean Workshop is aimed at anyone having an Elective/Planned Caesarean Birth. It is here to support you and your birth partner in planning for a positive caesarean birth.
During this workshop we will look at exactly what you can expect during the caesarean birth, how to prepare and how to support recovery.
We hired Nuria as our postnatal doula to help care for our twins, born last year. Looking back, I don’t think we would have coped without her! She helped us with everything, from feeding and bathing them, to babywearing, and doing endless rounds of laundry – and all while creating a calm and positive atmosphere. She then continued to support us for a period of several months while we organised permanent childcare, during which time we had the pleasure of also meeting Grace, who stepped in on any days Nuria was away. Thank you Nuria and Grace!
Nuria was a friendly, warm and supportive presence in our home on each visit. She was calm and quiet which was soothing to me and soothing to our son. Knowing she was on the way always made getting through the night/morning that much easier and as she was walking through the door I felt I could breathe a sigh of relief – I wasn’t alone anymore.
We are delighted to have partnered with you in the preparation for having our child Isaac at the RBH (event though we planned for a home birth) and in particular for the support during labour and right through to the delivery of our baby. The psychological support made all the difference because of the negative hospital experience we had with having our first child. Thank you for all of the help and advice during pregnancy and the support and the preparation for the coming of the baby, and letting me know what was going on during the different stages I went through on the day. God bless.
