Let me tell you a story...

Once upon a time, a little girl from Yorkshire packed up her bags and moved to London. There she stayed for more than 15 years, working as a primary school teacher in some of the most deprived inner city boroughs. She loved being a teacher; she had a real passion for the Early Years' and helping schools and staff teams improve their provision.

She'd always imagined leading her own school one day, but in the Spring of 2015 a new song began calling to her. It was a beautiful song, beckoning her in a completely new direction. She had no idea where this journey would take her, but she was fully prepared to jump and watch her wings unfold.

The following Spring, she gave birth to a beautiful baby boy; 9 months later she retired from teaching and 12 months later, BirthWright was born.

“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new."

- Osho 

 

Over the years, as my own family has grown, so too has my business. I now offer complete wrap-around-care - from Conception to Reception (see what I did there?!) I do this through my work as a Traditional Birth and Postpartum Doula (Red Tent Doulas); Antenatal and Hypnobirthing Teacher (The BirthWright Method™) -- where I specialise in helping to heal past trauma; as a Placenta Remedies Specialist (IPEN); Motherhood Coach & Mentor (Emotional FreedMum Formula™); Family Meet Up Host; Mothers' Sharing Circle Space Holder and... I'm currently writing a book.

I truly believe that Birth Work is a calling: a calling from our ancestors to share forgotten knowledge and ancient healing modalities. Over the past 8+ years, I've had the absolute honour and privilege of supporting thousands of expectant and new parents - and their beautiful babies. Thank you for choosing me to be your guide.
