I am a FEDANT-registered Antenatal Teacher and have been guiding parents-to-be through birth education for 14 years. Using a mix of yoga-breath and birth-positions, hypnobirthing techniques and evidence-based guidance (with a healthy dose of common-sense and personal realism) I can prepare you for every birth. Small group sessions and 1:2:1 classes are arranged on an individual basis. Contact me to discuss your personal needs.

How To Birth
I have been delivering comprehensive antenatal education for over a decade to couples, individuals and groups of parents-to-be. I regularly run group Antenatal Classes or can deliver a bespoke course in your home at a time that would be convenient to you. I am a FEDANT-registered Antenatal Educator. Please contact me for more details on dates and prices of my HOW TO BIRTH course.
Would you wait to learn how to birth until you were in labour? Then why wait to learn about the newborn phase and how to nourish your baby until after he or she is born? This course covers everything you could possibly need to know from the moment your baby is born until feeding is established. And all that can happen in between! Including lots of 4th trimester tips and partner involvement. Courses only run every 6-8 weeks. 1:2:1 sessions also available on request.
Breastfeeding Home Visits
If you feel something isn't quite right with your breastfeeding, it's important to get the right support as early as possible. It might be that you need a breastfeeding professional to check the latch, show you ways to increase your supply or you may need more specialist help in the form of an IBCLC or tongue-tie specialist. Not all enquiries necessitate a home visit, some can be solved with appropriate sign-posting. But please do make contact as soon as possible.
Whether you would like to debrief a recent birth experience or prepare for a subsequent birth, it's often difficult to find the right support to talk things through. Some births just didn't quite go to 'plan' and you'd like to discuss how to navigate the path to birth with more understanding next time. Whilst other births can leave one or both partners feeling incredibly traumatised and overwhelmed with emotion on a daily basis. I have received quality training in Birth Trauma and am also an NLP Foundation practitioner.
Postnatal Doula Services
Whether this is your first or fourth baby, there will be a time of adjustment for the whole family.

From support with feeding, settling, understanding babies cues, sleep and routines to help with getting around and light household chores.
