Welcome to The Egyptian Doula, formerly known as ConsultMyBaby.com. ConsultMyBaby.com was the name of my previous website and business for the last 5 years however as time went on I decided that The Egyptian Doula was better fitting so ConsultMyBaby has been rebranded and restyled.
I'm a doula, and Egyptian, so it makes sense to me.
In fact, I believe I am the only Egyptian Doula in the whole of the UK - so for now, I will revel in this, until proven otherwise!
For those who knew me via ConsultMyBaby, I still offer many of those same services however my work now includes a lot more writing, campaigning, studying, researching, creating, mentoring and educating.
Let's get to know each other. Tell me about you in the comments. Here are my answers to the most commonly asked questions.
What's your name? Yasmin (the correct way to pronounce it is "yes-meen")
Are you actually Egyptian? I am indeed. مصر أم الدنيا
My pronouns: She/ Her
Are you a mom/mum? Yes
What's your background? Law and Birth mainly. I am a trainee lawyer & a full spectrum doula

To holistically support women and people through some of the most amazing, exhausting, exhilarating, emotional, awe inspiring, depressing, joyful, life altering moments of their lives.
As a full spectrum doula I support people anywhere on the spectrum of before life to death. This might mean supporting a parent TTC (trying to conceive) one day, to supporting a mother during labour the next. My mission, whilst small, is to make change where there is injustice in the world, in particular through supporting women and people with reproductive and human rights, and through supporting other birth and baby workers who support those same clients.
We are only here for the blink of an eye, so it makes sense to me to make that blink worthwhile.
Some things I believe, which are integral to my work:
That people are free to choose with whom they conceive
Freedom to choose how to give birth
Black Lives Matter
BIPOC Lives Matter
That no is a complete sentence.
That abortion is a human right and is not controversial
That people should be supported regardless of sex, gender identity, religion, race, age, ability or disability & colour
That there should be no place in the 21st Century for things like poverty, slavery, racism, homophobia, transphobia, sexual abuse or harassment, child abuse, water or food poverty, male or female genital mutilation to name but a few.
Charity and Connection Work
Some of the recent campaigns I have supported:
