I am a doula, homeopath and herbalist specialising in women's wellbeing and peri-natal natural health maintenance. Empassioned by a recognition that optimal reproductive health and empowered birth are the foundation of nurturing families and communities, I have been supporting women's well-being, positive pregnancies and post-partum periods since 2007. Using homeopathy, herbal medicine, nutritional therapy, sacred bodywork and meditative practise, I am able to help bring optimum health and embodied connection using natural methodologies. Becoming a birth doula in 2013 enabled me to consolidate this vocation in a deeper and more intimate way in support of birthing women. I offer this work without judgement and with the intention to facilitate births that are transforming and dignified. Babies born in peaceful circumstances, to informed, conscious parents, have the best chance of growing into healthy, secure, compassionate adults. This in turn leads to a more compassionate and interconnected culture, with a higher regard for the natural world and wider humanity. I am an intersectional feminist focused on facilitating women to engage with methods of self care and respectful community that can form the basis of ongoing reproductive, emotional, psychological and spiritual well-being. I offer international consultations for birth preparation and natural healthcare which are available via Skype.
Pregnancy and Post-natal Health
Women who give birth in an environment where they feel safe, secure and in control, are more likely to labour comfortably and to remember their births positively. With its focus on physical signs and symptoms, this can sometimes be lost in the modern medical context. From our sessions in preparation for birth through to the arrival of your baby, my focus is on viewing you the person, in a holistic and responsive way. When your emotional well being and your intuitive responses are acknowledged, the physiology of the birthing process is well supported and empowered birthing is possible. My role is not to tell you 'how' to give birth but to help you conceptualise the best pathway for you and your baby; and then to help make that a reality.

I employ a number of modalities to help you to have the best possible pregnancy, birth and post-natal experience. Using homeopathy, bodywork, nutrition, herbs, massage and meditation, I can help you to prepare your mind and body for the momentous journey of childbirth and into motherhood.
The post-partum period is often overlooked as we focus on labour but I have found that nurturing the emotional and physical well-being of the new mother is an important foundation for a growing family. I offer bespoke post-natal packages intended to maximise convalescence and baby bonding in the first weeks of motherhood as well as natural treatment for infant health.

Homeopathy is a system of medicine which is safe, effective and completely free from any side effects or toxic ingredients. As such, it is the perfect choice for families wishing to safeguard their health and address any issues in a gentle and holistic way. I use homeopathic remedies to treat a number of ailments including infant health, childhood diseases, skin disorders like eczema and acne, allergies and digestive pathology. It is also very useful in the treatment of emotional upsets and physical illness which stems from trauma, stress or depression. Many of my clients experience the benefits of homeopathy for the first time during pregnancy and go on to make it central to their family's health.
