I am a doula, homeopath and herbalist specialising in women's wellbeing and peri-natal health. Empassioned by a recognition that the empowered feminine, experiencing optimal reproductive health and 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, yoga and sacred bodywork and meditative practises, I am able to help bring optimum health and embodied connection. My insights as a birth doula have enabled me to consolidate this vocation through a deeper understanding of women's bodies. 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.
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 as a 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.
