Who are we?
We are a small and dedicated team who love what we do and are endlessly passionate about supporting women with honesty and heart.
We worked as doulas individually before coming together as a collective, then formed a CIC so we could apply for funding and support women who could not, for a variety of reasons, afford to pay for doula services.
About a year after becoming incorporated Amy quickly became a good friend and a crucial member of GMD CIC. In September 2021 she officially became a director.
In Spring 2022 we welcomed Sarah as a freelancer, who had quite the journey to working with us.
Why a collective?
It was always apparent that we have a similar ethos and approach to supporting women. We had a strong sense we would work well together, supporting each other and the women we serve.
Forming a collective means we support and challenge one another, ensuring we grow and develop as doulas. It’s a more sustainable way of working, and it offers women more reliable and consistent support.
Whilst we share a similar ethos, we have individual experiences and perspectives that the women benefit from – working together gives women access to a wider breadth of experience and resources.
The shared care we provide means women can build a relationship with each of us. As as result they can feel reassured that a doula they know and trust is there to support them.
