My journey of birth and midwifery began in 1993.
I started as a lay midwife, trained in the NHS and then went on to work as an Independent Midwife for 13 years.
I am currently practicing as a Birth Consultant, offering individual sessions coaching and mentoring and teaching.
My passion is to uphold birth as Sacred, and I consider myself to be a 'safe-keeper of the ancient craft of midwifery.'
I am committed to supporting women to feel empowered through their birth choices and experiences, however and whatever they are. In the recent years, there are too many stories from women and some professionals, of trauma experienced in relation to child-birth. This is so far from the Sacred Rite of Passage I believe and have experienced birth to be.
I offer individual sessions preparing for birth, and debriefing after birth, and am available to talk and run workshops on birth as a Sacred Rite of Passage.
- Antenatal and postnatal.
- Birth plans/general advice.
- Debriefing from previous birth(s)
- Support with preparing birth as a rite of passage/the spiritual dimension.
‘Thank you for all you did to make this birth so healing and so different to my previous experience. I feel so happy, and relaxed and so able to be present with my darling… The birth was amazing, more than I dared hope for and I feel that all the emotional work you supported me in, was what made the difference this time. I am so deeply grateful.’
‘You were such a big part of our magic night helping us bring safely into this world our two darling angels. You showed great courage and a wonderful combination of intuition and experience. Thanks for your trust and faith in us.’
‘Every so often you meet someone who completely changes your life. You have been one of those people for me and I cannot begin to express my thanks and gratitude for what you have done. You have gone beyond the call of duty in helping me, and us as a family, both over the past months and during and after the birth. Your patience and understanding has been second to none. You have reawakened my spiritual side and given me confidence in my own abilities. You have been like a counsellor, a mother, a friend and a spiritual guide as well as a midwife. Thank you form the bottom of my heart’
