(also available via Skype/ Zoom)
I have over 30 years experience working with pregnant, birthing and postnatal women, couples and babies.
I see childbirth as a profound and potentially empowering experience in a woman's life.
I feel passionate about helping women to grow within themselves during pregnancy and to become relaxed and confident as women during childbirth and motherhood.
Although my special focus has been natural, undisturbed birth, I am well aware of the challenges facing parents-to-be in achieving such a birth within the (often fear-driven) medical-based hospital system.
Because of my midwifery experience both in hospital and at home, I have many 'tricks up my sleeve' to share with expectant parents, wherever they choose to give birth.
I offer a wide range of consultations in person or via Skype / Zoom, including:
Childbirth, Breastfeeding and Parenting Education sessions
Identify your options, needs and personal preferences about birth
Discuss fears and prepare positively for labour and birth
Relaxation and breathing techniques
3-6 hour private mini workshops available - Practical, empowering and important for birth partners
Debriefing / understanding previous birth experiences
Preparing for vaginal breech birth, VBAC (vaginal birth after Caesarian) or elective caesarean birth
Avoiding or planning for induction of labour
Refresher classes and Sibling classes
Phone support during early or active labour
