I provide in-person, online or telephone consultations to inform, inspire, and empower parents to prepare for the wonders and practicalities of pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting. Combining modern evidence, ancient wisdom and 37 years of professional experience as a former nurse and midwife. I am committed to assisting families to achieve the childbirth experience they hope for, and help babies to be born gently, and in love.
Over the last few years, the number of NHS antenatal and postnatal appointments has been markedly reduced. Midwifery clinics are often very busy, and individualised care from a known midwife can be is severely limited.
I help families to access antenatal, birth, and postnatal information and provide support for their choices. Everyone can enjoy the benefits of my services as an Independent Pregnancy, Birth and Postnatal Consultant. My sessions complement, but do not replace the care provided by your maternity care provider, and are accessible wherever you live in the world.
My role is supporting and protecting normality, and in helping people avoid unnecessary interventions. I can support you practically, emotionally and spiritually to help you keep your pregnancy, birth and postnatal periods as stress free as possible, optimising the chances of you, and your baby being in the best mental and physical health possible, no matter what type of birth you have.
By offering you the opportunity to discuss any issues relating to pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period, I support and inform parents, and provide the time needed to explore all available options without agenda. During your appointments I can provide you with balanced information so you can make informed decisions that are right for you, your baby and wider family.
Contact me by email or phone for a free initial 15-minute consultation. During your call we can discuss your requirements, and work out which type of care would best suit your needs. Perhaps a one-off 60-minute consultation, a package of support sessions, joining my online community, or perhaps an online course may be more appropriate for you.
My services compliment your usual maternity care from your midwife or doctor, and are not designed to replace it.
I believe in keeping my care as affordable as possible, so please discuss if you are unwaged or in receipt of benefits as concessions are available.
