Hi. I am a young minded experienced mother of two and Grandmother to five beautiful children. I am a recognised birth and postnatal doula with Nurturing Birth and Doula UK and a Doula UK Mentor.
I have a passion for helping, supporting and nurturing mothers to be and supporting their partners and families. To date I have had the priviage of supporting over 100 amazing parents.
I have had the privilage of supporting couples who have chosen varied birth styles such as birthing at home, birthing in (MLU) midwife Led Units, water births at home and in hospitals, (VBAC) Vaginal Birth After Ceasarean, women who have the desire to have the birth they want after a previous birth experience or trauma. I will support your choices in preparation to have the birth experience you want and help build confidence in your abilities and help you throught he birthing process.
As our relationship developes and becomes an intimate and trusting one, it is important that we all like and feel comfortable with each other. I am non judgemental, empathic, a good listener and I will give you the time and reassurance needed both physically and emotionally, delivered in a warm, sensitive, experienced and caring way, helping to make your journey a positive memorable and rewarding one. I will support your choices however you choose to give birth.
Should you choose to hire me, I will assure you of my commitment to you and your family.
Please give me a call, I will be happy to talk with you, or fill out a contact form. I will contact you back on the same day.

I am young minded experienced mother of two and grandmother to four fast growing children, and I have been privilaged to play an active part during their births. It was after the birth of my fourth grandchild that I realised the importance of my role as helper to my daughter.
I have supported over 100 amazing and varied couples with their birth preferences and choices, I have experience working in many hospitals, I have supported couples who chose to birth at home, birth centres, (MLU) Midwife Led UnitS, Water births, (VBAC) Vaginal Birth After Ceasarean. Women who have the desire to have the birth they want after trauma. I have been an avocate for women without partners and have developed long lasting relationships too.
I work as an independant Rebozo practitioner, which is a great if not an essential tool to use prenataly, during labour and in the postnatal period, it Optimises Good Positioning throughout pregnancy so there is less need for a 'cure' at the end of pregnancy. My clients have had great results in successfully turning breech, transverse and awkawrd lay babies successfully past their due dates.
If you require support at this special time, then I may be able to help if:
-You would like to have a natural birth, but not sure how you will be able to cope with pain.
-You want someone there during your whole labour and birth instead of being passed from midwife to midwife.
-You are thinking of having an epidural but would like to know more about the risks.
-You would like someone experienced who would be with you whilst in labour, to leave your partner to be free to be with your older children if necessary.
-You are having a planned c-section and need a familiar face to support you should your partner accompany your baby to special needs ward and when at home in the fist weeks.
-You had a c-section delivery with your first baby and would like to achieve a vaginal birth this time around.
-You feel dissapointed about your previous birth(s) and would like to have a better birth
