Birth & Postnatal Doula

South West London

Supporting You In Pregnancy, Birth, and Beyond

Welcome to Barefoot Birthing!

Here you’ll find Mindful Birth courses and Birth & Postnatal Doula support in London/Surrey, all provided by Rachel Cunliffe DipHB(KGH).

Are you feeling anxious and nervous about birth and becoming a parent? Or perhaps you feel good but know you want to feel even more prepared? Has someone mentioned this strange term Hypnobirthing and you want to know more? Or perhaps you’re intrigued about hiring a doula? Then you’re in the right place!

Giving birth to your baby/babies and becoming a parent (whether for the first or fifth time) is one of the most pivotal, intense, and amazing times of your life. The course options and personalised support Rachel can provide will ensure that you and your partner (if you have one) feel informed, prepared, empowered, and excited.

Whether you’re in early pregnancy, the final few weeks, or have already had your baby/babies, whoever you are, whatever your birth/parenting choices are, you’re welcome here, and I look forward to hearing your story and supporting you on this unique journey. Rachel xxx

Enjoy a bespoke private course

Prepare for birth with a private 1:1 course, either in-person at your home in South West London, or online via Zoom from anywhere in the world. Course options include the award-winning Mindful Natal® course package, or a bespoke course.

Abdominal birth courses.

Preparing for a planned abdominal birth (caesarean section) is hugely special and important, hence why there is a thoughtfully curated and dedicated course for you.
