I grew up in Brighton where my whole family still lives. I have always been close to my two sisters and my brother, we all have children and have supported each other during our pregnancies, births, postnatally and beyond. Being present at the births of my nieces and nephews was amazing and inspiring and left me with a strong desire to become a doula. I discovered the importance of being continuously supported and nurtured during labour and experienced first hand the positive difference this can make to birth outcomes.

I am truly inspired by the transformative power of birth and I want to give people the confidence to listen to and trust their bodies. I think there is too much fear and negativity surrounding birth and that we are capable of far more than we are conditioned to believe. Our bodies are perfectly designed to birth babies and with less fear and a better understanding of birth physiology, I believe it is possible to have a positive and empowering birth that will leave you feeling like superwoman!

Outside of my doula work I love running, cycling, walks with my dog, camping, eating delicious food, a bit of yoga and big family get-togethers!

I completed my training with Nurturing Birth in June 2021 and I have regular mentoring sessions with an experienced Nurturing Birth doula. I feel it is important to continue to develop my practice, which I am doing by keeping up to date with research and attending new courses to expand my knowledge and develop my skills.
