***Important news about current services.***
In view of the current situation relating to Coronavirus there have been a few changes to the services I am offering and how ‘sally golightly family doula’ is running. I am not currently providing face to face support for labour or in the postnatal period. However I realise that this is a particularly challenging time for new and expectant families.

With this in mind I am offering the following doula services:

  • doorstop drop off’s for essentials and food
  • antenatal and postnatal support via zoom
  • antenatal birth preparation; mindfulness based relaxation activities to help you feel confident about the birth of your baby
  • sessions designed specifically to write birth wishes and think about your options during labour and birth
  • free 15 minute phone support

I am continuing to mentor doulas and other antenatal practitioners, if you would like to book a mentoring slot via zoom or telephone then please email me mail@sallygolightly.co.uk

Maternal Journal Zoom sessions, these are running on Tuesdays 7-9pm and Thursdays 2-4pm and are open to everyone, you just need a journal, pens/pencils or art and craft things, access to zoom and a private space where you won’t be interrupted.

Red Tent Doula training – This training has now shifted to online support UNTIL face to face workshops resume, if you are booked on a workshop with me, please note that this will take place once the government restrictions have lifted. In the meantime I will be providing online sessions in addition to the face to face workshop.

Red Tent Doulas – we are also having monthly socials for those who have already attended a workshop or who have signed up to the workshop this year. Please email me for more information mail@sallygolightly.co.uk

About three years ago I wrote a ‘mindfulness for birth’ preparation booklet, this is given to all the families that I work with. I am currently offering this FREE of charge to help parents prepare for labour and birth. If you would like a copy please get in touch.

Hello and welcome to my website!

I am a birth and postnatal doula with a wealth of experience in supporting families throughout pregnancy and into their parenting journey. I offer antenatal, birth and postnatal care with different packages tailored to your own personal needs. There is a vast amount of literature and information at your fingertips which is incredibly useful but it also means that it can be hard to find your own way. I am passionate about helping you to navigate this information and trust just one expert… yourself.

My experience includes; hospital and home birth, VBAC, induction, loss, planned and emergency caesarean, planned breech birth, water birth, siblings and pregnancies categorised as ‘high risk’. Please see ‘doula services’ for more information.

I am an experienced facilitator and run Maternal Journal Yorkshire, a creative space aimed to improve women’s emotional wellbeing and Death Cafe, a discussion group to explore issues of loss, grief, death and dying.

I have supported families in their transition to parenting for over ten years. I run NCT Antenatal courses for expectant families across Yorkshire and Lancashire. I am a mentor for other birth workers and run training events across the UK including Red Tent Doula Training, Relaxation and Resilience and Breastfeeding.
