'Roz was invaluable throughout not only the birth of our daughter Polly but post-natally too.

'Roz Macklin is such a lovely woman and such a lovely doula! I am so glad that she was there for the birth of Edith.

She was also willing and ready to muck in and help clean up afterwards which was beyond helpful!'
