Only need a Doula?
Relax and breathe, you've come to the right place!
Hello, I'm Jo Robertson a doula and birth photographer serving South Wales and surrounding areas. As a doula, I'll arm you with the knowledge and resources that'll help you plan and prepare for your birth.
Providing gentle, reassuring support during labour, birth and postpartum (as much or as little as you want)
Equipping you with the right tools to make an informed choice around how you'd like to birth and then support your choices.
I've been documenting births for 6 years and supporting as a doula for 3 years. My ability to read the birth space has enabled me to capture the most beautiful, quiet and unintrusive moments during labour, birth and immediate postpartum.
My calm and warm nature helps me navigate and support both you and your partner during birth, in a way that maintains your intimacy.
Who you invite into your birth space really matters - the BEST next step would be to get in touch to see if there's a connection between us.
"When we hired Jo we had no idea how invaluable Jo would become. I look back on my birth and wonder if Jo had not been there how we would have gotten through it. I would never give birth again without hiring Jo. It's the best decision and investment we've ever made!" - Lynsey Legz

"Having Jo as our doula was the best decision we made. From the moment we had the first meeting we knew she was the doula for us. She was calm, empathetic and clearly very experienced in all things pregnancy, birth and post natal recovery. Jo stayed in communication with us in the lead-up to the birth and helped us finalise our birth plan, listening to what we wanted and offering numerous evidence-based resources and ideas.
When I went into labour she arrived quickly and calmly and her presence immediately put me and my partner at ease. Throughout my labour, Jo was a constant source of support and encouragement, kneeling beside me in the birthing pool for hours massaging me to help with the contractions, feeding me jelly babies, liaising with the midwives (and making them tea!), supporting my partner, telling me what a great job I was doing. Anything I needed she was there.
I can honestly say having Jo on our birthing team was the best decision we made!" - Lowri
GOOD TO KNOW: I certified as a Doula in May 2019 after a year-long in-depth mentoring course with Samara Hawthorn at Well Mama Doula, Pembrokeshire, South Wales. Gaining this certification has confirmed beyond a shadow of a doubt that working with women and families to support and capture their birth stories is my true calling!
