BirthBliss was founded by Kicki Hansard in 2002. It started out as a provider of birth and postnatal doula services. In 2006, Kicki started working as a doula course facilitator and later, in 2011, she created her own doula course as well as a number of workshops for doulas. In 2017, an exclusive on-line antenatal programme for pregnant women and their partners was added and there are further on-line programmes for parents and birth professional planned.

This is a free service for BirthBliss Doulas to promote their services. If you choose to engage a doula listed you are responsible for checking the accuracy of their details and in ensuring they are the right fit for you. BirthBliss Academy are not responsible if you, for any reason, are unhappy with their services.
