A birth doula is someone who may offer emotional, educational and practical support during pregnancy, birth and early infancy.

The transition to motherhood is a powerful life change.

I am passionate about ensuring that women receive the wisdom and support they need for fertility and conception, during pregnancy, birth and early motherhood.

Pregnancy & Baby Loss

Compassionate support
one to one, couples & groups

I offer specialist support in my private practice for pregnancy trauma and baby loss. In addition to seeing clients on a one to one basis I also offer support for couples. Often partners who witness trauma also experience fear and helplessness.The  loss of an expected shared connection through the creation of a baby may wish to be acknowledged by both parents. Trauma and bereavement can have a powerful impact upon personal relationships. I can offer a space to hold exploration of many of the difficult thoughts & feelings that arise.
