About Me

I am a birth and postnatal doula, doula trainer, feeding supporter and baby massage teacher. My philosophy across all my work is to empower women and families, to give evidence-based information and to nurture. I value listening and signposting, rather than judgement and advice-giving! I am passionate about physiology and protective of choice. My sessions are full of energy, enthusiasm, nurturing and knowledge. But, I will let my many clients’ testimonials dotted around the website attest to that.

If you want to get a greater flavour of who I am then come and check me out on social media – I regularly post video blogs on different pregnancy, birth and parenting topics via Nurturing Birth, as well as contributing articles to magazines. Contact me if you want to know my upcoming schedule of conference and study day speaking engagements. There’s a lot of information across these pages, but if you can’t find what you are looking for then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
