About me

Hi! My name is Sara and I’m a birth and postnatal doula, serving Edinburgh and the Lothians.

I am lucky to have many things that bring joy to my life, but my passion is pregnancy, birth and newborns. This passion led me to developing my work and practice as a doula.

Sara Ferreira-Jeffries Edinburgh Doula

I’ve trained as a birth doula with Kate Woods from Conscious Birthing, under her Doula UK and European Doula Network accredited course, and I’m also a member of the Scottish Doula Network and Doulas Without Borders.

I’m here to support you and your family through this beautiful (and okay, maybe a little daunting) time. I have a deep belief in your power as a woman to confidently give birth to your baby, and a deep care for mums-to-be and new mums. It’s okay if you feel a little overwhelmed, you have storm of doubts in your head, and you're super excited about what’s to come – I’ll be here to navigate all that with you!

I’m currently a mentored doula, meaning that, through me, you’ll have at your disposal not only my support but also the support of a network of doulas.

I see my role as that of service and support to mums-to-be and their families. I do this by providing care, information and an open, non-judgemental mind, as you prepare for giving birth, and as you get to know your new baby. I also know that no two women are the same and neither are their births – and this is a good thing! It means we’ll have lots of fun making this journey yours.

I look forward to meeting you and being by your side during your pregnancy, birth and postnatal period.
