Your Pregnancy Matters
We offer emotional and practical support before and following the birth of your baby. Our work is all about empowering your family to take care of its self and we facilitate this by offering encouragement and suggestions, as well as providing a supportive home environment, to enable you as a mother to develop your own mothering skills in a relaxed and stress free manner.
Your Mental Health Matters
As many as 50 to 75 percent of new mothers experience the "baby blues" after delivery. Up to 15 percent of these women will develop a more severe and longer-lasting depression, called postpartum depression, after delivery.

Your Baby Matters
We believe there is not a one way method of doing things and therefore have developed various methods and techniques on raising children. We will use this information to help you discover how you want to do things. We are not here to tell you what to do!

Meet Your Derbyshire Doulas
My name is Imogen Zybert, I am 31 years young and I have two children. For the past year I have been supporting families in the community by offering pregnancy and birth related guidance. This has developed in running my own non-profit organisation that brings parents from all backgrounds that are dealing and living with mental illness whilst juggling parenthood. Becoming a doula felt like the natural next step for me to take and I love this adventure.
I have completed my CBT practitioners certificate that allows me to bring a CBT approach to the work I do. I also am fully DBS checked and have training in baby loss and coping with grief. This year I have trained in reflexology and run sessions with families teaching the different pressure points that could be used to relieve stress and labour pains.
Also, this year I was awarded the high peak hero award for providing pregnancy support during Covid-19.
I will be offering pre and post-natal support throughout your pregnancy. This will take place primarily within the family home environment.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
My name is Katie Cadman and live in the High Peak area of Derbyshire. I am married with two children ages 7 (8 next week) and 4. I have been working with Imogen since the summer and officially became a partner a month or so ago.
I enjoy supporting mums, their partners and families through the journey that is pregnancy, birth and parenthood.
What inspired me to become a doula was after having my two, they were very different pregnancies/births and I always wanted to use my experiences somehow to help other families. I recognised that there is a great need for support throughout the whole journey and how beneficial it is for all involved when they get it.
Before becoming a doula I worked as a teaching assistant, qualified nursery nurse, experienced support worker having worked for the NHS specialising in autism, epilepsy and learning disabilities. I have completed introduction to counselling skills level 2 and certificate in counselling level 2.
In my spare time I love walking and strongly believe that getting out and about is key to mental health especially in the postnatal period.
