Hypnobirthing Three Step Rewind (Birth Trauma Support) Breastfeeding Counsellor Parent First Aid Courses
My journey into birth support began back in 2013 when I was pregnant with my eldest child and I came to realise the importance of my husband and I being informed and empowered as expectant parents.
Over the years, my family and my interest in the birth world have both grown dramatically and I now offer a range of services from antenatal education and hypnobirthing, through to birth and postnatal doulaing, breastfeeding counselling and birth trauma support for those needing to shift negative emotions related to a birth experience they may have had previously.
I have experienced 6 unique births of my own, some which went as planned and others which took a different path, and feel fortunate to look back on all my experiences with overwhelming positivity. My passion is to support people as they navigate pregnancy and prepare for their own birthing and early parenting experiences.
My wish is for everyone to have access to the support they need to feel informed and empowered as they move forwards towards parenthood.
I believe that everyone has the right to understand the choices and decisions which are theirs to make. Throughout all my birth work, I look to inform expectant and new parents so that they can feel empowered to navigate pregnancy, birth, early parenthood and feeding their babies whilst also feeling supported and positive. I place families at the centre of all my birth work.
What is right for one person may not be right for another, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to pregnancy, birth, parenting and feeding your baby.
Throughout all my birth services, I seek to know clients as individuals, to understand what is important to them and how to support them to achieve their goals.
Alongside my doula work, I am proud to be a Paramedic and feel strongly that all parents should have access to first aid training. I am excited to offer parent first aid courses as an add-on to my doula services.
