About me

Hi! My name is Gracie Gray, Norland Nanny, certified birth and postnatal Doula and mother of two.  

I live just south of the beautiful city of Bath with my husband, two wonderful (energetic) sons and our two (even more energetic) dogs.

I studied and graduated from Norland College in Bath with a BA Hons in Early Childhood Studies in 2013.

I found it a profound privilege to work in people’s homes with their young children and I was lucky enough to work with some wonderful families in London and Switzerland before finding a long term position in Somerset. I stayed with the family for 8 years, they have an extremely special place in my heart and we are still in regular contact. I left in 2022 when my own little family started to grow. Through my years as a nanny, I continued working on my professional development and gained a diploma in child behaviour as well as an introductory diploma in play therapy.
I feel that my high level of experience as a Norland Nanny and my personal experiences as a mother have lead me perfectly onto the passage to becoming a Doula.

I feel passionate that a person’s transition into parenthood, although a journey, shouldn’t be struggle. It should be a wonderful, precious time and with the right help, it can be. This is why I decided to train with and get a qualification through Nurturing Birth.

"Every woman deserves to have her mental and physical health protected during this sacred time, sometimes we just need someone to guide us through and help tap into the strength and power we have inside"
