Women thrive when they are able to express and embody their true nature. I love seeing women thrive and embrace motherhood when they feel empowered, well-informed and confident.
I am absolutely passionate about supporting women in a way that will give them their own natural authority during pregnancy and birth. All women know deep down what is best for them and their babies. Your innate knowing is invaluable and I am here to help you walk the path to motherhood with confidence, sovereignty and joy.
While respecting the mother’s individual needs and decisions, my presence in the birthing space is my commitment to helping her deliver her baby in her own way, without inhibitions, and with the appropriate support. My work is to ensure that she has the most positive birth experience possible.
My approach is very gentle. Using movement to soothe and support your birth process comes from my background as a trained dancer and somatic movement practitioner. For ease and vitality, I give particular attention to the pelvis.
The use of flower essences, aromatherapy, massage, the rebozo (a traditional Mexican shawl) and gentle movement are combined to accompany the mother, physically and emotionally, throughout pregnancy, her birth experience and the postnatal period.
Appreciating your partner’s needs and concerns becomes part of my work during this significant time.
‘Throughout the course of my pregnancy Samara was a guiding light and a font of wisdom that taught me to trust myself, my inner voice, and my body. Her profound belief in me helped me believe in myself and my ability to birth my baby naturally, which was the most immense, empowering and joyful moment of my life.’ Natalie
‘Samara is a very warm person, open-minded, understanding, non-judgemental. She has a great knowledge about the female body and how to prepare it for giving birth. She is very helpful and considerate.’ Kasia
‘I fell in love with Samara straight away with her relaxed, soothing and warm personality. She was key in the delivery of my daughter. Her presence was immensely valued during the birth process where she ensured all my wishes were respected but also provided comfort, massages, and reassuring words.’ Sonia
