Student Birth Doula: "I am a mother to two wonderful girls, which I gave birth to at home. I am a dancer and mover, a Feldenkrais and somatic movement practitioner and a mentored Doula.

I feel that every pregnant woman should have someone by her side, who can hold space for her, listen, witness, support her and serve her wishes and needs on this beautiful magical journey.

I want women to have the freedom to choose and own their pregnancy, birth and motherhood journey from an empowered and informed place.

I am passionate about people connecting to their bodies and feeling happy and comfortable in their movement and I see movement and bodywork as an important and valuable part of the preparation for birth. As part of my practice I offer support in movement and touch in a gentle way that can connect you to your ability to move freely and dance through your pregnancy and birth.

I aim for women to be as informed as possible and to give as much support as I can in order for them to make a decision that comes from a place of connection to their own wisdom and sense of empowerment. I trust that from that place each woman will know what are the best choices for her individual needs.

I live in Stroud, in a beautiful community called ‘Springhill’.

I cover Stroud, Gloucester, Cirencester, Cheltenham, Tetbury, stonehouse, Dursly and area around.

I would love to support you in your preparation for birth and at your birth and serve your choices and your needs.

To be there, by your side".
