More about me

Birth has completely changed me as a person. An empowering birthing experience with my first child led me to be in awe of the capabilities, strength and power of our bodies. It evoked a huge passion in me and so I decided to train with NCT in 2014 to provide antenatal/parenting classes in my local area. This training led me into the birth world and is still very much a part of what I do.

 In 2020 I decided to take the next step and trained with Developing Doulas to provide both birth and postnatal support to women and families in the area. This is where I belong, serving women in homes and other places of birth! I believe in women empowering women. To be present during this hugely transformative time in a person’s life is the greatest privilege and in return I offer my consistent care, support and authenticity.

My postnatal experience after my last two babies were challenging. I have experienced the full force of overwhelm, isolation and little support which led to a whole range of prolonged, challenging feelings. My wish is that no one should have to experience these feelings after bringing life in to the world. This is why I offer postnatal doula services with emotional wellbeing being the central, key part. You matter.

I am also a breastfeeding advocate and previously volunteered with a local breastfeeding support group, supporting families on their feeding journeys since 2013.

I would love to have a chat with you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch to see how I can support you!
