Pregnancy and birth support with a birthkeeper or doula.

Jeanette Faulkner - The Quantum Healer and Birthkeeper

Hello! My name is Jeanette and I am a birthkeeper, doula and healer.

As your birthkeeper, I am here to support you during pregnancy, birth and the first few weeks following your baby's arrival. A birthkeeper centres you and your baby together regarding you as one. My role is to support you in any choices about your maternity care you may make and be there for you when you need that continuity of care that is often missing from the overstretched NHS.  This means I will be available for you to call upon any time day or night from 10 days before your due date until baby's, or babies', arrival. This doesn't mean I can't be there for you if baby comes before time, though! I can be there as an advocate for you when you need, and give practical and emotional support not just to you, but your partner and other family members.

Following birth, I will make sure you are settled before leaving and return for a further visits if you require. These are negotiated with you dependent upon your need. This may be for help with breastfeeding or purely allowing you some time to bathe and sleep for a few hours whilst I peel some veg ready for your evening meal. From your first booking with me I am available for you to contact whenever you need.

I have a wealth of experience behind me, having qualified as both a Midwife and Registered Nurse. Homebirths are a true love of mine and I have attended twin and breech births both in hospital and at home. I happily support VBAC, free birth and vaginal breech births.

I am a proud member of the Association of Radical Midwives and AIMS. I am a birthkeeper with When Push Comes to Shove  and Kemi Johnson's birth keepers group and registered with Doula UK. I have undertaken professional development courses in advanced paediatric life support, breech and twin pregnancy and birth. I work closely with twin expert Sarah Hawkins to ensure the best outcome possible for twins. I can offer rebozo work, along with homeopathy and reflexology in pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period.

I am based in Gosport so my area covers mainly south-east Hampshire and south-west West Sussex - Southampton, Eastleigh, Winchester, Petersfield, Midhurst, Chichester, Havant, Portsmouth, Fareham and Gosport. However, I will cover further afield (through to Surrey, Dorset and East Sussex) but do ask for help with fuel and the extra time required for travel.

I look forward to meeting you!


I am available by phone, text, WhatsApp or email. I will normally respond quickly when urgent or within twenty-four hours if non-urgent.
