Placenta Encapsulation and Doula Services in Hull and Yorkshire
with Zita The Doula
Our ability to mother comes from within,
It is there deep inside when we need to begin.
We learn from our babies the right and the wrong,
Each one individual, singing his sweet personal song.
If we listen to their voices and trust what they say,
We can all mother our babies our own instinctive way.
Stop talking, stop asking, there is no norm.
He brought you the answers the day he was born.
Since becoming a mother in 1993, I have learned an enormous amount about pregnancy, birth, babies, children, adults and families. It is a constant, never ending, evolutionary learning process. I was a Registered Childminder for 10 years with the NCMA and cared for dozens of children from birth to 12 years helping many parents in many ways and learning new things each day from them all. I am now a Birth and Post Natal Doula, fully recognised by Doula UK. I have a healthy sense of humour and have learned, through life experience, how to use it in more ways than I ever thought possible - it really is an incredibly powerful and helpful thing to have.
My instincts have always been strong and I learned early on to trust them whenever possible in my everyday life. Like most women, these instincts intensified when I became pregnant and were hugely influential in my ability to make and carry out - and often to fight for - the informed choices that I knew inside were right for me, my children and my family.
I believe every mother has an innate right to womanly, instinctive nurturing without agenda or judgement, criticism or prejudice. The right to enjoy emotional, physical & practical assurances from someone she trusts to hold her interests uppermost and to protect her space at all times.
If you'd like to find our more about how I might be able to help and support you before, during or after your baby is born please contact me. I will reply as soon as I can, usually within 24 hours.
I very much hope you enjoy the site and find it useful.
Warm wishes, Zita x

Ingesting your placenta during the six-week period after your baby is born provides vitamins, minerals and perfectly balanced hormones that will soothe your body, rekindle your energy, reduce your bleeding, fade your pain, encourage your milk and ease your mind. Your placenta can be dried and made into capsules, which you can simply take as a nutritional supplement.
A birth Doula is experienced in pregnancy and childbirth. She has a good knowledge and awareness of female physiology and she is employed by you, the parents in a holistic, purely non-clinical role.
Having a postnatal Doula means that you do not have to shoulder the overwhelming responsibility of motherhood alone. The modern nuclear family is often separate from local community networks with families living far apart, making it difficult for mothers to cope. Postnatal Doulas specialise in guiding and empowering parents through those early weeks.
