In my spare time, I love to travel with my Swede and cherish every moment with family and friends. I am ballet, flamenco, and food obsessed.
I’m from the north east of England and I’ve lived here in Gothenburg since 2008. The usual story, I’m here for love. Back in 2010, 5 years after meeting the above mentioned Swede, I fell head over heels in love with something new. That love was the world of new experiences being pregnant brought me.
Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t lucky enough to be one of the women who loved being pregnant, who glowed constantly, quite the opposite, but I thrived off the journey to meeting my baby, seeing what my body was capable of and wanting to know every possible bit of information. Information not only relevant to my pregnancy but pregnancy and birth in general. When friends who were pregnant at the same time, didn’t share my overwhelming curiosity, it made me realize a fire had been lit inside of me. And so here I am today. A fertility treatment warrior, Mum of 4 including a set of twins (also known as organized chaos) certified ODIS doula, certified VBAC doula (CD,TVL) Hypnobirthing instructor, Birthblessings facilitator, Three Step Rewind practitioner (certifying) and Childbirth Educator.
I see birth as an exhilarating, liberating and more obviously, life changing experience, when both the process and the birthing family, are given the respect they deserve. Evidence based information and informed choice are core values in my work.
As your doula, I will honour your birthing experience by recognizing birth as a normal and natural process, however you choose to birth. I will listen to and advocate for your wishes where needed although more importantly, I will help guide you, so you feel confident enough to advocate for yourself. I offer inclusive, individualized, emotional and physical support in the familiar surroundings of your own home or at your chosen hospital. I will provide effective communication between yourselves and the midwifery team to create an atmosphere of balance in the birthing room. It goes without saying, that when it comes to your chosen birth partner, I’ll make sure they have what they need and are involved in every step of the process because their energy and involvement plays a huge role in your joint experience.
YOUR BIRTH. YOUR CHOICE. MY SUPPORT.
