“Imogen helped us to bring our beautiful son safely into this world. Having her by our side to prepare us during the weeks before and to guide us throughout my labour made me feel like we were an invincible team. The best cheerleader, support (emotionally and physically!), and teacher, Imogen helped me to birth my son in the way that I wanted. Her subsequent care and love has allowed me to remember his birth as something of which I will always be incredibly proud. She is truly an angel whom we are now privileged to consider part of our family.” – A mother 2022
Birth Preparation and Labour Support
To see joy in birth should be the norm. I am dedicated to helping women and birthing people have the informed, supported, empowering and joyful birthing experience they deserve. I believe birth is a sacred space that will be remembered for the rest of your life, therefore during this time of great transition it can be essential to have someone walk alongside you, supporting you with a sensitive and empathic approach.
I provide physical, emotional and informational support that is bolstered by evidenced based information and tailored for you and your truly unique journey. My labour support is continuous and no matter what decisions you make or how you choose to give birth, we will work to remain connected to the sacredness of new life.
I will facilitate communications with care providers, so that you feel a sense of empowerment and ownership over their care. I provide a calm, positive energy allowing a safe space for concerns and wishes to be validated and addressed.
I will ensure that you feel fully informed of all of your options, you are able to make informed decisions, you feel cared for and supported.
As a qualified Sound Therapist I offer a holistic approach to your care that addresses the mind and body using complimentary sound, meditation, nutrition and exercises, combined with an in depth and practical knowledge of birth physiology.
The 4th trimester is a time of great emotional and physical change, as your baby adjusts to being outside the womb, and you adjust to your new life as a mother. Oftentimes mothers underestimate how challenging this period can be, and look for the vital support of ‘The Village’ that sadly is not in place for most mothers as it has been throughout history. Whether you require non-judgmental friendship support, a helping hand so you may get some rest, infant feeding support, nutritious meal preparation or help running errands such as food shopping and school runs, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
I spent 10+ years working as a Creative Producer & Art Director, so am well versed at bringing calm to high-intensity situations. I am highly adaptable and intuitive to peoples needs and come with an ability to communicate effectively in even the most time-sensitive situations. I am a natural caregiver, and passionate about helping people tap into their inner power and ability.
I am the mother of one daughter, who I gave birth to at home in Stoke Newington, London.
