Congratulations on your pregnancy!
How are you feeling?! Excited?
Imagining who your baby will look like... thinking about colour schemes for the nursery... starting to buy the tiniest of tiny little vests...
But pregnancy and those early baby days come with a rollercoaster of emotions, don't they? The excitement is so often interspersed with feelings of anxiety, fear, exhaustion, and overwhelm at just how much new stuff there is to get your head around with this massive life change.
I've been through pregnancy, birth and the post-natal whirlwind twice and I really do get how you're feeling. It's BIG! But I wan't you to know that it is possible to navigate it calmly and with confidence - in yourself, your body and your baby.
I provide comprehensive birth preparation - for all types of birth, and I also support parents with breastfeeding - because who knew that was such a minefield too?! So whether you have found me in your search for a calm birth experience... or because you want to feel confident about breastfeeding your baby - Welcome! I'm so happy you found me.

The information and the confidence you need to choose the best birth for you (helping you to feel more in control!)
A birth partner who is calm, prepared, more than a spare part - and worth their weight in gold!
... All leading to your best possible start to parenthood - for you, your partner and your baby.Book a course
So often we put all our efforts into preparing for the birth of our baby that we then fail to think about the early days and weeks. I was certainly guilty of this first time around! But just minutes after you've given birth to your baby certainly isn't the best time to start learning about how to breastfeed!
My breastfeeding courses are holistic in their approach - and that's what makes them so effective. I want you to have the knowledge and techniques that you need to know to breastfeed your baby - but also for that experience to be as calm and enjoyable as possible! So all my courses include mindfulness techniques - to keep you feeling calm and connected with your baby, rather than anxious and overwhelmed - plus information about expressing, baby-carrying and safe sleeping. So that you can make your breastfeeding journey work for you.
I provide both pre-natal and post-natal breastfeeding courses so that you have support available both before you have your baby and once they are in your arms.
