Hi, I’m Laura and I’m an Ayurvedic Practitioner and Postpartum Doula. I’m a mother to a very active little boy and through my own ups and downs as a mother; I have a huge understanding of what motherhood can be like and because of that I’m able to easily working with mothers and families to bring about support and achieve realistic goals.
I believe that when we have the right support we can thrive and my goal is to facilitate a space where you are supported, nurtured and rejuvenated in the way you deserve throughout different stages of your life.
I was drawn to Ancient Healing Systems such as Ayurveda when I became very unbalanced and unwell. Through Ayurveda, I learnt the importance of understanding your individual self and what balance actually means on all levels plus how nature plays a big role in our health and well-being. I was driven to re-balance all aspects of my life so I could regain my health and with a lot of hard work and discipline, I achieved my goal.
My passion for supporting mothers and their families began when I experienced my first miscarriage and grew even more after having my son. Having experienced the profound changes that occur post-birth, I felt firsthand how important having the right support around you is. Having the space to fall in love, bond and recover is invaluable and not only beneficial for mothers but the whole family. I also believe it’s important to give the same support to mothers and families post-loss.
I absolutely love what I do and transfer that love into every offering. I not only pursued this path for my own health and well-being but in the hope to one day help others find that balance in their lives as I have found.
I look forward to meeting you and being part of your journey.
Much love and blessings,
xx Laura Colbert
"Laura was exactly what I needed postpartum after having my third baby. I so appreciated having her cook for me and nurture me while I transitioned to a mother of 3. She was so supportive and I would highly recommend her as a postpartum doula!! "

"Laura’s passion for postpartum care is evident when you hear speak and hear her story. She is a wealth of knowledge, I felt 100% confident to book in Laura as part of my care and I’m so happy I did. It gave me a chance to lye down and realise how helpful that was to healing, I felt nourished, and actually relaxed and set aside a weekly time to relax. Home made meals was the other most nurturing support of my postpartum care, fresh homemade food, just needing to be heated up, the most helpful thing ever."
