My name is Meghann Horner-Smith and I support women in Oundle, Peterborough and surrounding areas. I am honoured that you are considering me to walk beside you on your journey into motherhood.
I am originally from the US, but moved to the UK over 15 years ago. I am now settled in Oundle, UK and have three full-on children. They are old enough that I now have freedom to explore my own personal interests, but young enough that I still vividly remember my mixed feelings about my own pregnancies, births and early motherhood.
I was fortunate to have amazing Doulas beside me for each of my births, and their practical and emotion support was instrumental in me having positive births myself. This has led me down of path of supporting women in various ways. I am a trained NCT Breastfeeding peer Supporter, I am the former chair of the Peterborough Maternity Voice Partnership, and am a Prison Visitor with Birth Companions.
I am passionate about a woman and birthing person’s right to make informed choices for themselves, their baby and their family. However you plan to birth, I will support you to make the right choices for you and will support you unconditionally.
