Birth beliefs

My Philosophy

I offer to walk alongside you on this journey. , spiritual and information support extend over the full varied experience of pregnancy, abortion, loss/ early birth, birth, postpartum and transition to parenting.

Birth beliefs

Throughout human history women, birthing families have consistently sought warmth, direction, and wisdom from their familial circles to centre themselves during transitions in life.  The way in which we grow our babies, birth them and raise them has an enormous influence on our lives, our babies’ development and a reflection of our society as a whole. I understand the power that birth and postpartum has to make or break bonds, to heal ourselves, to have a reach far greater, heal deep wounds in our societies and establish a base for our future generations to build from. Being such an intimate and powerful time the guidance of those with experience can be grounding and encourage us to remember our primal strengths when it comes to birth and parenting. 

It is an honour to be present and witness you discovering your intuitive wisdom and power. My focus is to provide active listening and empathic space to explore your inner experience of this transition and the options available to you. Cultural and queer competency threads deeply into my care, I strive for ongoing learning and aim to work from a trauma-aware, gender-inclusive and anti-oppressive space for all.

My experience has covered birth/ breastfeeding trauma, solo parents, LGBTQ+ families, gestational diabetes, multiples, loss, early birth, induction, elective cesarean, emergency cesarean, VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) and those with more complex medical needs including physical restrictions and disabilities. I support births at home, birth centres and labour wards.
