STILL SUPPORTING FAMILIES THROUGH COVID-19
(Find out more HERE)

Love is what I will bring to you when I support you. I want to walk through this part of your parenting journey with you, wrapping you in a warm blanket of care and nurture. I will listen to your hopes and fears and together we will find ways to create a clear path to feeling confident, in control and connected. Pregnancy, birth and parenting information is overwhelming but I will help you navigate this by acting as your google filter and by guiding you to balanced information.

I will always support you in your choices without judgement, holding your hand throughout. As we get to know each other, I will be able to tailor my services to the individual needs of your unique family. A doula is an emotional support, a calming presence, and a bringer of compassion and smiles. Practically I will bring my knowledge of labour, birth, hypnobirthing and biomechanics. I also have a lending library, birthing pool, birthing stool, birthing balls and rebozos for you to use.

How I can support you:

  • Hypnobirthing – I teach group and private classes.
  • Bespoke antenatal education and birth preparation.
  • Pregnancy Doula – individually tailored doula support throughout pregnancy until your birthing day.
  • Birth Doula
  • Birth Trauma Release (3-Step Rewind).

A little bit about me:

I live in in a little village in the Norfolk Broads with my amazing teenage sweetheart turned husband and three sons.

After my motherhood journey began I became acutely aware that so much in life begins with how we experience birth and the start of human life. I started my birth keeper work by training as a hypnobirthing teacher and then began consuming as much as I could about the birthing and parenthood world. Eventually, after years adoring my work as a school teacher, I made the jump to fully self-employed life. And here I am.

Some fun facts:

  • I’m happiest with a scuba tank attached to me, drifting along the bottom of the ocean.
  • I cannot cook. Seriously, my baking is actually dangerous.
  • I home educate our tiny humans.
  • I founded and run Home Birth Norfolk peer support group and I am the founder of Norfolk Doulas.
  • I am Vice Chair of NNUH Maternity Voices Partnership, working always to advocate for birthing women and people and their families.
  • Devotional development – I am dedicated to attending many continuing professional development courses every year.
