Hello and Congratulations from your local Doula in Cheshire covering Manchester and surrounding areas. 

My name is Nikki Mather, I am based near Manchester in Alderley Edge, Cheshire.  I invest my time in supporting families as a Birth Doula and Postnatal Doula, Recognised by Doula UK. I also offer services to compliment the birth work provided to families as an Infant Feeding Support Specialist and Placenta Remedies Provider.

Looking for information and support during pregnancy about labour, birth, infant feeding and parenting can be easier with a doula by your side. Navigating maternity services, birth plans and parenting choices may be less challenging when you have somebody by your side who is familiar with NHS and private services offered to parents.

I am available to offer your family confidential and discreet support as your birth doula or postnatal doula in pregnancy, birth. As a Postnatal Doula I can also offer tailored support packages in the early weeks of your new journey as a parent. Standalone or bespoke packages are available and include emotional and practical support as well as infant feeding support when required.

If you are looking at investing in an independent, experienced Doula UK Recognised Birth Doula and Postnatal Doula in Cheshire and beyond, I would like to invite you to take a look at the services available in your area for your family.

Alongside birth & postnatal doula services which can be tailored to your individual requirements, I also offer Antenatal Birth Preparation as a bespoke package, tailored to your needs.  In private one to one sessions in your own home you can build your birthplan or birth preferences getting current information and evidence based research to support your choices. Other workshops are available and include breastfeeding & the early days with a newborn. Contact me for more details or see Workshops.


What families say about doula support


Greater Manchester

"Nikki is very knowledgeable, experienced and patient. Having her by my side during labour was very reassuring and she remains my go to person when I have any questions regarding breast feeding or parenting, more generally."



"Nikki provided me and my husband with so much reassurance and just allowed me to “talk out” my concerns and fear after my first birth, where I just lost all the control over my own body and decisions......such a lovely and memorable birth experience which still brings smile and goosebumps to my body when I remember it!"

“Having Nikki available has made a huge difference to us at the beginning of our son’s life. I have had to deal with a new job and I have been so reassured knowing that my wife and son have had her support while I have been working. I have great respect for her expertise and would definitely recommend her to anyone”
