A Bit About Me
Birth is a journey and after more than 15 years in the birthing profession I know and appreciate that everyone’s journey and the destination is different. As a Doula, I promise to offer unwavering support to you and your family before, during, and after birth. My aim is to empower you to be able to make informed and safe decisions about your care. I will stay in close contact in order to routinely check how you’re doing and offer anything needed.
Charmaine is a British trained Midwife with more than a decade of experience who is now practicing as a Doula in Alpharetta, Georgia since moving to the USA with her family in 2014.
As a Midwife Charmaine practiced at Queens Charlottes and St Mary’s hospitals which are part of the Imperial Healthcare NHS Trust where the Royals Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis were born!!
During her time at Imperial Health Care Charmaine gained extensive experience working on the Postpartum, Delivery, Antepartum wards and was part of a team that delivered Midwifery care in local clinics and providing home visits. Her areas of expertise are Birth, Postpartum Care, and Jaundice detection; she has also worked in a tongue tie clinic that detected and visualized tongue ties in newborns.
The benefit to you of having a UK trained Midwife as a Doula is her sound understanding and experience of birth from a clinical and physical support standpoint, her dedication to advocacy and ensuring you are able to make informed decisions about your pregnancy. Whist Charmaine no longer practices clinically her clients benefit from her extensive knowledge of Midwifery and Birth.
When I am not supporting women, I love to spend time with family particularly my awesome teenager, helping her to negotiate her final year of high school! I am also more than half way through a Masters in Healtcare Administration, which I plan t0o use to work with policy makers to try and effect postive change in Obstetric health. I also enjoy swimming, travelling and the theatre.
