Local info and availability:
I’m a mother of three daughters aged 11, 8 and 3 with birth experiences ranging from a labour ward to home birth. My postpartum experiences were as unique as each birth because my needs, expectations and preferences changed. I believe there is no ‘right’ way to enter motherhood but that by listening to intuition and surrounding ourselves by those who support and respect our preferences we can ease the transition for both mother and baby.
Whether it’s holding space to process birth, providing nourishing food, helping to care for baby/siblings or supporting your transition to post partum life I’ll work with you to create a care plan that helps you and your family adjust. Postpartum life is unpredictable so i’ll always have a flexible approach so we can adapt to any changes.
I’m also a breastfeeding helper and co-run the Haringey homebirth support group.

“I didn’t even know about a 4th trimester after my first pregnancy, so to have so much support this round has made a world of difference! With Mel’s help and support, I’ve healed so much quicker and mentally I feel so much more calmer with the emotional support she’s provided throughout these weeks. It’s genuinely made my whole birth experience so much more memorable.” Ricci, North London
“You gave me such great perspective on the topics that I’m constantly thinking about these days – a much more constructive, positive, forgiving way to think about things. As well as some practical tips. Can’t thank you enough.” Crissy
