About Me

I remember an employee from the NHS coming to my high school to talk about the different career options, and midwifery was one of them. A light bulb went off in my head…I had a vision that I would become a midwife and that the care that I would provide would be as special as if I was looking after my own mum whilst she was pregnant with me. The first birth I witnessed was a home birth, what an incredible place to start! And that set me firmly on the path of holistic midwifery and empowerment. I love to help people feel safe and supported, no matter how complicated their situation gets. I qualified as a midwife in 2008 and have loved my role. I work part time as a community midwife in the area that I live.

In 2018 I qualified as a Womb Healing and Fertility Massage Practitioner, which opened up the world of women’s health in a way I had never seen before (which is surprising as I had been a midwife for 10 years previously). I delved deep into the energetic power of the womb. I have learned how we can live by the seasons of our menstrual cycle, to understand ourselves better and plan our lives around each shift in hormonal energy. I went from seeing the womb as an amazing physical organ, to realising that it is the creative centre of a woman that can be stifled when we carry grief, resentment, past hurt and other emotional baggage. I became someone who realised the importance of leaning into our emotions, all of them.

In 2019 I qualified in full body massage and then pregnancy massage. Pampering women during their pregnancy with the power of touch is a gift that I love to give. I combine my pregnancy massages with my KG Hypnobirthing training.

In my spare time I love to go to church, I help to run a Christian kid’s group, I love being outside, wild water swimming, reading, journalling and spending lots of time with my friends, family, husband and two children.

My big dream is to own a property that has enough space for people to come together in large or small groups. Where people can be surrounded by nature and restore some of the disconnect from themselves that they may feel when living in such a busy world. I would love to run birth preparation retreats, NHS group training retreats, fertility and menopause support circles, and much more.
