As your radical birth mentor, I understand that you want to be heard and your dreams valued on your journey through birth. I know that birth is an immensely transformative and powerful time in a woman's life and it is my wish that you are supported and nurtured through this time, emerging after your birth as a strong, confident and whole woman who believes in her body's innate ability and trusts her intuition as a mother.
As your birth mentor, I will work with you to feel confident and informed on your journey towards birth and parenting. I will provide emotional, physical and practical support in pregnancy, during labour and in the early weeks. I will provide support to your birth partner so they are better able to support you.
I will help you plan for the birth you want.
I will help you plan for the days and weeks following the birth of your baby so this time is as joyful, peaceful and nourishing as possible.
I will assist you in your communication with one another (if you are partnered) to help your relationship move into parenthood as a strong and secure partnership.
I also offer an online support service. Perhaps you want the support, transformative mentoring and reassurance of a birth keeper but don't have one in your area or don't necessarily want an extra person at your birth.
As a nutritionist, yoga teacher and exercise physiologist, I will provide nutritional and herbal information for a healthy pregnancy and postpartum as well as suggest alternative remedies to support labour, birth and postpartum. I will provide guidance around exercise and physical preparation during pregnancy and for your postpartum recovery as well as strategies to improve sleep, reduce stress, minimise toxic exposure and move into a more mindful way of being.
I combine the best components from different birth education models such as Hypnobirthing and Active Birth as well as an extensive range of mentoring tools learned from leading birth advocates around the world to help you feel confident and in control as you embark on your journey of radical self responsibility.
