Pregnancy can feel like a bit of a rollercoaster - the excitement and joy, the anxiety and the unknown...  and its so easy to feel like birth is something you just need to get through! In order to meet your baby! 

I know that you want more than that - a birth experience which you can look back on and smile about. But I also know that this isn't the norm in our society. 

My role is to help you prepare to meet your baby whilst feeling informed, prepared, excited and in control!
