About Me

My name is Gulcan, but everyone calls me Jan.

I am the mother of two amazing adult sons and I am passionate about every aspect of a woman's experience during pregnancy, birth and what follows.

I am an experienced and qualified prenatal, birth and postnatal Doula.


As your Doula, we will work together and I will emotionally, practically and physically support you while helping you build a safe space for you and your baby as we start this journey.

We will begin when and where you feel most comfortable.

Equipped with knowledge and evidence I will guide you on your journey, with what feels best for you and your baby at the heart of every step.


I believe it is your body, your baby, your birth and therefore your choice.


As every woman is unique, so will her journey into motherhood be. My aim is to empower you and build your confidence so you are able to embrace and enjoy every aspect of your pregnancy, birth and beyond.


I have a great interest in postnatal care and I am fully aware that media, culture or traditional thoughts on childbirth and motherhood can put immense pressure on a new mother. I feel everyone around you should be aware that this is a very overwhelming change to you and those around you.


I am a proud Maternity Mate with Women's Health and Family Services. Through this service, I have supported vulnerable women, those who have escaped domestic violence, have special requirements both physically and mentally. I also have experience with babies who have been born with disabilities.


It was through Maternity Mates that I realised being a Doula was my calling and that I wanted to be able to provide support and encouragement for any woman who feels it will benefit her.

What does a Doula do?

Your Doula is there to support you and give you confidence in your birth choices to achieve the type of birth you want.


For the basic packages I offer, please see Services.

I understand that everyone has different requirements and that is why I am happy to build a package with you that gives you the most positive birthing experience possible.

Feel free to contact me for any questions you may have.



Thank you for all that you did for us, was so helpful to have you there in the first moments after birth.
