Hypnobirthing, Rebozo and Closing the Bones
I have enjoyed supporting couples prepare for their birth with Hypnobirthing since 2014. In January 2018 I decided to deepen the level of support I am able to offer to expectant families and answered what I felt was a calling to become a Doula.
I trained with Kicki Hansard’s BirthBliss Academy, and completed Doula UK’s Recognition Pathway to work as a Recognised Birth Doula in May 2019 (I am still currently a Mentored Postnatal Doula).
In addition to my Doula and Hypnobirthing training, I have also trained in use of Rebozo techniques for pregnancy and labour and also Closing the Bones with Sophie Messager.
In addition to this I have undertaken a variety of voluntary roles with NCT and am currently a Co-Facilitator with Milli Hill’s Positive Birth Movement and also a Volunteer with Buckinghamshire NHS Maternity Services. I am passionate about supporting families from pregnancy through to the early days with their new baby.
I generally cover an area up to a one hour drive from Stokenchurch. I support births across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire at hospitals including Cotswold Birth Centre (Chipping Norton), Horton General (Banbury), John Radcliffe (Oxford), Royal Berkshire (Reading), Stoke Mandeville (Aylesbury), Wallingford Birth Centre, Wexham Park (Slough) and Wycombe Birth Centre as well as home births. If you live or plan to birth somewhere that is more than a one hour drive from Stokenchurch, do please contact me as I may well be able to support you.
