Stilettos to Strollers

I am devoted to proving that knowing what you want from your birth & having a doula does not make you a ‘hippy dippy’ or demanding, but actually an educated, knowledgeable woman.

The area I cover

More about me

I’m a modern London Mama with a passionate for birth. I’m an activist, educator, doula and the founder of stilettos to strollers. I’m on a mission to work with parents to prepare, support and comfort them as they step into their new journey whether that be with your first baby or fifth. Wanna know what lights me up? Seeing parents realise they can take charge of their birth, they are the ones in control and they have all they need within them. I aim to be the one that whispers “you really can & will do this” while others provoke doubt, supporting you in the birth that is right for you and your baby. 

I was inspired to become a doula after so many of my hypnobirthing couples asked me if I could attend the birth of their baby, and I wanted to be able to say YES. I first trained as a hypnobirthing teacher with the powerhouse that is Kemi Johnson back in 2016 while still working in PR. However once I realised my passion was in birth work I knew I had to live and breathe it. After my second child I decided to quit my 9-5 and focused completely on the birth world. I knew parent’s to be needed someone relatable to be their cheerleader (and bring great snacks)!

I’m now a mother of three (I still can’t believe that, three!) and each baby has made me more intent on helping you to have confident, calm birthing experiences. My experience is supporting across births under both NHS & private caregivers throughout London & Surrey including The Portland, Lindo Wing & Kensington Wing. I’ve supported women who experienced wonderful home births to planned caesareans, these parents are from all walks of life.

I’ve also trained to support families with loss & rainbow babies via the infant lost foundation and to help with birth tramum taking you through the Three Step Rewind technique.
