“Lucy introduced me to the concept of a Postnatal doula, I never knew such a wonderful service existed! She also introduced me to Eva Bay Birth Doula who she offers a shared care package with. Lucy instantly put me at ease with her kind manner and calm respectful approach to being in my home. I felt condfident and assured of her valuable knowledge of pregnancy, new babies and local support services. Lucy Baena highly recommended to all!” Antenatal & Postnatal Doula for Anee

“I met with Lucy when I was pregnant. I have Epilepsy and was very anxious about the birth of my baby. I had been under consultant led care and was labelled as a health condition rather than a mum to be, who happens to have epilepsy. I wasn’t treated as an individual and was just made to feel more anxious and was told what type of birth I wouldn’t be able to have. It was so good to meet with Lucy and to know that she understood how I was feeling. She really helped me to feel more confident and more equipped to try to make it the birth I’d hoped to have as much as I possibly could. Lucy also helped me put together my birth wishes. After all the stress with the consultant I ended up having a home birth and a healthy baby girl. To be able to have a bit of support from someone that understands what it is like to have Epilepsy was invaluable. Thanks so much Lucy” Epilepsy Peer Support Session

“So many thanks to Lucy for holding my mother’s blessing a few weeks ago. Lucy held the space with love, humour and warmth and made it fun and magical for everyone there! I felt supported and connected to my circle and still feel quite emotional thinking about it! Here is my necklace/rosary to inspire me during labour which has become the basis of my affirmation board. I recommend a blessing to every pregnant mama….can’t imagine not doing it!”  Betsy

“Lucy organised a wonderful Mother’s Blessing for me ahead of the arrival of my second baby. She created such a loving, nurturing, and peaceful atmosphere among my dearest friends. I haven’t felt so special since my wedding day! Lucy took care of all the planning and it was perfect. It was such a wonderful experience and I would recommend it to all pregnant mamas, and would recommend Lucy to organise it for you. Thank you Lucy! xx” Johanna

“I had the most wonderful mother’s blessing thanks to Lucy. Lucy took care of all the organising (much appreciated during the late stage of pregnancy!), and she held the space so beautifully on the day. It was such a positive experience to have a mother’s blessing, and I felt very loved and nurtured in preparation for my baby’s arrival. Thank you Lucy  – I would recommend this (and Lucy!) to all pregnant mamas.” Sian J

“Lucy held the most beautiful mother’s blessing for me. She not only created a beautiful space in my home, decorated with candles and rose petals, but she created an atmosphere of immense warmth, love and humour amongst my wonderful group of women folk. It was a truly spiritual and magical feeling to sit with my great big baby belly, surrounded and held by my strong mama friends. The rituals Lucy led connected me to each one of them, and to all women who have birthed before me. Afterwards I felt steeped in love, stronger and much empowered for what was ahead. I would highly recommend having a Mother’s Blessing to any new mama-to-be – especially hosted by Lucy!” Sarah R
