- Author: She penned her first book, “The Secrets of Birth: What every woman should know about birth and motherhood,” which won the “2017 Janey Loves Platinum GOLD Award.” Her latest book focuses on supporting survivors of sexual abuse through pregnancy and childbirth.
- Educator: Kicki has trained over 1,000 aspiring doulas, not just in the UK but also in Australia and China. She’s studied with some of the most respected names in the field, like Sheila Kitzinger, Michel Odent and Dr. Jack Newman.
- Awards and Recognition: She was awarded “Doula of the Year” in 2009 by Pregnancy & Birth Magazine and Doula UK.
- Activism: Kicki created the hashtag #butnotmaternity and led a campaign that made a significant impact during the Covid pandemic, advocating for women and families.
Kicki believes that birth is both a profoundly normal and deeply profound event. Her approach aims to instil confidence through true information, equipping women and families for labour, birth, and the postnatal period.
She’s been featured in several high-profile magazines like Hello, Vogue, and Grazia. She’s also spoken at events like The Baby Show at ExCel in London.
