Birth & Postnatal Doula and 3-Step Rewind Practitioner for Birth Trauma

I am a Doula, mum, sister. friend, Birthing-Badass.  A Birth Warrior.

  • A champion of women, of pregnant, labouring and postnatal Mamas; an enabler for new parents.

    I have been a Nanny, a Maternity Nurse, a Student Midwife, a Facilitator for Women’s Empowerment.

    I have been a stay-at-home mum, a work-at-home mum, an on-demand-breastfeeding mum, a stressed-out-and-sleep-deprived mum, a feeling-isolated-in-my-own-house mum, a my-life-has-turned-to-shit mum, a Postnatal Depression mum. I have been a single mum.

    I am now a very-happy-well-balanced mum; a Birth Warrior Mum.

    Like so many other courageous women, my journey to becoming a Birth Warrior was a tough one. I was armored with knowledge; brave and determined to face labour powerfully and with intent.

    I am committed to enabling all women to birth with the same force.

    After the rush of Oxytocin calmed, and the buzz of having my new baby lulled, I felt alone. Without a good support network, I did what no Birth Warrior should ever do – I attempted to soldier on, never asking for help and pretending I could manage all by myself.

    I forgot that it takes a village to raise a child. I learnt the hard way that it takes a village to raise a new mum too. Luckily my tribe rallied, and I found my strength again.

    Now my promise to all new and expectant parents is to encourage you, praise you, enable you, support you and help you throughout your pregnancy, labour and beyond.

    Without judgment. Without shame. Without comparisons or put-downs.

    With courage, care and compassion (and no doubt the occasional swear word!).

    Maybe you’re facing parenthood for the first time, maybe this is your second/third pregnancy, maybe you don’t have a (birth or life) partner to support you in labour or maybe you do have a partner but you’re looking for that extra level of support that enable you to achieve an empowered birthing experience…

    I help pregnant women and their partners achieve a powerful and confident birth where they feel totally in control, even when things don’t go completely to plan.

    When you chose to work with me in labour;

    You will create a birth preferences document that takes into consideration many possible birth outcomes so that you can birth on your terms;

    You will see me 3 times in pregnancy (or more), helping you to galvanize your self-belief and ease your fears around childbirth so that you can birth calmly and with courage;

    I will be on-call for your labour from 38 weeks of pregnancy and stay stead-fast by your side until you are victorious in bringing your baby earth-side.

    Sometimes pregnancy and labour can result in sad and difficult outcomes. Wherever your journey leads, you can be certain I will walk the fire with you so that you have a birth-comrade you trust – that cares for you, understands you and always has your back – right by your side.

    When you chose to work with me after your baby has been born you will receive emotional and practical support as/when you need it;

    I will ensure you are well tended to during the day;

    that you eat well and rest well so that you can regain your strength and totally rock at being a new mum;

    I will support, encourage and cheer you on to become an breast feeding badass – IF that’s what you desire;

    I will keep your house tidy and your laundry clean so that you have time to bond with your baby and share in that new love with your partner;

    I will keep your older children entertained so that they feel as much cared for as your new baby and you can let go of the mum-guilt.

    Basically, I will sweat the small stuff so that you can do what is most important – recover from labour, rest as much as you can and rise a glorious, victorious and empowered parent.

    I work across Hampshire and have experience or working with high-profile clientele.
