Becoming a parent is one of the most incredible, mind-blowing and life-changing moments – a transitional phase that deserves respect. And yet, societally we are conditioned to think that we have to push ourselves to be active and present just days after giving birth. I passionately believe that we need to recognise the fourth trimester and prioritise the wellbeing of you and your baby through rest, good care and nutrition.
How I can help you
You’ve been surrounded by midwives and specialists during the pregnancy and birth and now you’re at home with fewer people around and a baby that doesn’t come with a manual. It can feel overwhelming! Whether it’s your first or fourth baby, I can help ease you into your parenting journey as you navigate life with a newborn. I can support and nurture you and your family emotionally and practically, so you can rest, recover, enjoy your new baby and have the start to parenthood that you deserve.
I gave birth to my two boys in 2015 and 2018 . Both times I felt disappointed by the lack of support that was offered to me postnatally. These experiences sparked my desire to give families the best possible start to parenthood. I strongly believe that personalised continuity of care can make a huge difference to the long-term physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of you and your family.
I live in Penge, in South East London, with my husband and two children. In my spare time I love spending time with family and friends, baking, adding to my obsessive collection of house plants, and cooking and eating good food.
