Hello and welcome to my page!
I am a mother of two children and birth worker living in South Wales.
I teach hypnobirthing methods and birth planning to mums & couples, attend births as a doula and provide postnatal support through babywearing, baby massage, rebozo and placenta encapsulation. I have supported hundreds of women to plan their positive births and find their way as new mothers.
I bring a calm and positive presence to all women and families that I work with. I have a deep understanding of the spiritual and emotional implications of growing and birthing a child and the sacredness of the birth experience. I have utmost faith in a woman’s ability to birth her baby in the way that she chooses. I can support you to make those decisions with evidence and information, as well as asking the right questions to help guide you to what your intuition is telling you.
In labour I am a “space-holder”, balancing the energies in the room and managing the atmosphere to make families feel safe and secure. I facilitate your relationships with medical staff and ensure harmony between everybody. I am the constant and unwavering support that gives you confidence to speak for yourself. I will be there with counterpressure and hip squeezes, brushing the hair back from your face, capturing those first precious moments.
My goal is to give new and expecting mothers the confidence, knowledge and skills to make the choices that feel right for them. I firmly believe in prioritising the emotional well-being of mum and baby and encouraging mum to follow her instincts. I approach birth from a natural and holistic perspective with an emphasis on choice. The bond between mother and baby is the most important thing we can nurture for a better world.
