"My mission is to provide an excellent training and lifestyle inspiration for my clients.
I want to provide a more intimate experience with smaller groups, taking clients to beautiful places and experiencing the beauty of the world and of their own body's capacity. The training is real, it is hard at times, it doesn't lie. It puts you directly in contact with your strengths and weaknesses, but it also takes you places you might not have imagined. It shows you what you are meant to be, How far you can go. "

"I am passionate about providing women with the support they need to enjoy the birth they want. Helping to guide them as they ease into parenthood with peace and joy. I take pride in educating and empowering women to really make informed choices when it comes to their birth. I love to raise newborn mothers up surrounded by support and love and send them off with the confidence to parent in a way that feels right for them. A doula can be like your favourite coach on the field, guiding you, teaching you and cheering you on. I started my journey to become a Maternal Support Practitioner when my youngest daughter was around 6 months old. With the MSP (doula) program well under way, and what felt like perfect timing, it only seemed natural to add infant sleep education, breastfeeding support and HypnoBirthing® Practitioner to my qualifications. With all of these qualifications under my hat I set out to build a practice grounded in Encouragement, Education and Empowerment for women and their family's to thrive in this time of momentous change. It is truly an honour to be a part of that."
