Meet The Doula

Nicola Carter

I am a birth and postnatal doula and the founder of The Mental Health Doula. I am passionate about improving the mental health support given to women during pregnancy and postnatally. I have also founded PND Mummies CIC to support women more widely.

I have experienced recurrent miscarriages and understand the increased anxiety that women and their partners face in subsequent pregnancies.

I offer KGHynobirthing classes and am a Birth Trauma; 3-Step Rewind practitioner.

I am a mum of one, to my ‘rainbow baby’ (a baby born after loss). He is a mini-me and keeps me constantly on my toes!  We spend most of our days outside, regardless of the weather, getting muddy, searching for mini-beasts and climbing on any possible surface!

What I Do

I work to provide you with high quality birth and postnatal doula services across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.

I am passionate about supporting you with your perinatal mental health. I offer non-judgemental support along with unbiased, evidence-based information, so you can make the best decisions for you, your baby and your family.

“All over the world, there exists in every society, a small group of women who feel themselves strongly attracted to giving care to other women during pregnancy and childbirth. Failure to make use of this group of highly motivated people is regrettable and a sin against the principle of subsidiary.”

~ Dr. Kloosterman, Chief of OB/GYN, Univ. of Amsterdam, Holland
