Lives in: Mere BA12
Local info and availability:
Covering Wiltshire, North Dorset and South East Somerset. I am based in Mere and cover Shaftesbury, Frome, Gillingham, Shepton Mallet, Glastonbury, Wells, Bath, Warminster and anywhere in between.
I run women’s circles in the woods, forest school sessions for families, I also offer closing the bones ceremonies and mother blessings. I am trained to be able to offer support via homeopathy, aromatherapy and biomechanics.
I am passionate about supporting birthing people through the journey into parenthood- through pregnancy, birth and postpartum. I feel strongly that it is a time of big transitions and that these times should be navigated with nurturing support.
I have two children, they are my inspiration for stepping into the world of birth and postpartum support. My own experiences were transformative and put me on this path supporting women and families as they enter the new world of parenthood. Pregnancy and postpartum should be a time that is gentle, nurtured, celebrated and held- I’m determined to help make this a reality for you.
I trained with Kaz Woodbury in the Continuum method, this model of support is one based around continuity of care. Therefore my standard Birth package is 6 prenatal and 6 postnatal visits, although I am always open to working with your wishes and budget. If you feel fewer sessions would work better for you- please reach out. My priority is to build a relationship with you so you feel I am a trusted person in your birth space and beyond.
I’d like to help you feel supported and empowered through the decisions you make regarding your body, birth, baby. Through pregnancy we really get to know and trust each other and work through how you’d like your birth to look, the stages of labour, debrief previous births, build a relationship where we can chat openly about any fears. We will look at ways I can support you in the birth space- biomechanics, aromatherapy, homeopathy and what might or might not feel good for you. I will provide evidenced based information for you to make informed decisions about your pregnancy and birth. We will plan a gentle and nurturing postpartum, chat about feeding your baby and looking after you.
In postpartum I am there to do whatever you’d like me to, from caring for siblings, offering feeding support, doing the laundry, making meals. I’m always guided by you and know you are your own wise woman, I’m just here so you can realise this. I can signpost you towards other incredible practitioners; from yoga teachers to osteopaths. I will be there to listen and help you process anything that arises.
As we transition into parenthood, a supportive community around us can make the postpartum a beautiful and special time. Whether that’s through the support of a doula. Friends and family, or building a wider network- I also offer Woodland Women’s Circles for pregnant and postpartum mothers and family forest clubs. A space to enable us to transition into parenthood in the arms of a supportive village. I am also able to offer Mother Blessings and Closing the Bones ceremonies, these can be added to any birth or postpartum package.
I have a full DSB check, and clean driving license. I am trained to offer support with aromatherapy, biometrics and homeopathy.
There is no right way to birth a baby, to me what matters is that you feel in your power – whatever that might look like.
Please reach out if you feel I am a good fit for you and your family. I offer a free call or video call so that we can get to know one another and would love to chat.
