Pregnancy, Birth, and Parenting mentoring by Skype, Phone or Email
Support and information throughout pregnancy and early parenthood, to inform and support your choices.
I have been a Professional midwife for 20 years, and was a nurse before that. I've also been a mother for 26 years. I am a qualified Birth Educator, and have taught birth preparation classes for 16years. During the last 14 years I have been an Independent midwife, practicing caseload midwifery in the UK.
Having worked in birth centres, hospitals and attended homebirths I am uniquely placed to support you through the maze of choices and options available to you. I have also experienced two very different birth experiences myself, so understand what a difference good support and preparation can make.
No two pregnancies or births are the same, so care options need to be personalised to each individual. There is not always the time to talk through all the options at your midwife or obstetrician's appointment, so that's where I come in. I can help you explore all the options, and make an informed choice about which care would best suit you. You can also use these sessions to talk through any previous births, to work though your birth plan, or talk through your hopes and fears.
Let me accompany you through your journey of pregnancy, and help you prepare for the best birth possible.
If you are not my midwifery client I cannot give specific advice about your case, because I don not have access to your full medical records. What I can do is inform you about your rights, explore all possible options, and give you good information on which to make your own informed choices.
I am a former Independent Midwife, Pregnancy and Birth Coach and Antenatal Educator. I was a midwife for 21 years and a nurse 16 years before that. I have a Diploma in Antenatal Education through the national childbirth trust, and enjoy educating mothers, non-binary or trans people and their partners. I am asked to speak at conferences around the world, sharing my passion for birth with other midwives, and birth workers. I have supported hundreds of families on their journey to joy-full birth and parenthood, and would love to share my knowledge with you.
