With over 40 years experience of working with pregnant women and their birth partners, I am a mother of 3 grown up children and have personal experience of self hypnosis during my own births (Hypnobirthing). I am a midwife. I have given birth at home and in hospital. In the 1980’s I was truly inspired by Dr Michel Odent and Ina May Gaskin. Together with my own experiences this led me to become a doula accredited by Michel Odent.

I later trained as a midwife. Prior to my midwifery training, I worked as a doula for many years, in the North West of England. I have a strong passion to enable and support mothers (and partners) to have a positive birth experience.

In my role as a doula and midwife I have been privileged to have witnessed many calm and beautiful births unfold, many using self hypnosis or Hypnobirthing. I have been fortunate to have observed many water births, home births,and hospital births, including VBAC (vaginal birth after caesarean).

For over 40 years I have supported and empowered women and their birth partners to make informed choices regarding their labour, birth, feeding and early parenting. I currently work within the NHS as a midwife in a midwifery led unit and in community.

I originally trained in The Mongan Method (USA  HypnoBirthing). I am now also practising The Katharine Graves (KGH) UK Hypnobirthing. I teach 4 classes of 12 hours (or slightly more). I understand that people have busy lives, so as far as classes go, I can be flexible to accommodate your individual needs, either in a small group or on a one to one basis, imcluding daytime, evening and weekend courses, or in any combination of the 4 sessions

In addition to my Hypnobirthing teaching role I work privately as a reflexologist, offering –

Pre conception and Fertility enhancement with Reflexology and Fertile Body Method of Hypnosis.

Reflexology in Pregnancy

Reflexology for all womens health and relaxation

Mineral Balanancing/nutritional support using Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA)

Birth trauma support, using self hypnosis, mind and body therapy

I offer private Antenatal Classes, preparing for labour and birth, helping you to do a birth “plan or preference sheet”, role of the birth partner and much more at dates and times to suit your busy lives.

In addition to this I offer sessions to prepare for when your baby is born, which include breastfeeding and the postnatal time ie life with your new born, early parenting, bonding, parenting roles, what is normal, changing nappies, bathing baby etc.
