About Me

I am a warm, bubbly and happily married mother of three based right in between Leeds, York and Harrogate.  I love living in a small town with the beautiful countryside of North and West Yorkshire right on my doorstep!

I started my journey into motherhood at a very young age, when mainstream advice about birth and feeding in this country was very different. By the time I had my second son in 2005 we knew a bit more, but fast forward to 2020 and I had become aware of hypnobirthing (although it had been around for many years prior). I had caught glimpses of it during my five years as a support worker in maternity services at an NHS hospital, and knew it was something I wanted to learn more about in preparation for the birth of my third child.

When I booked onto a class initially, I really didn’t know what an impact it was going to have on me, my pregnancy, my birth and my baby...little did I know it was also going to change the course of my professional life as well.  I had been craving a more nurturing and fulfilling role, and I felt that I had found my calling. 

I was so thankful to have practiced hypnobirthing, as there were various situations where I had to advocate for myself in the final weeks of pregnancy.  This is why I'm now so passionate about birth rights, decision-making and advocacy.  I can advise on how to have productive conversations with your healthcare provider.

When it came down to the most crucial moments, ​I know that without hypnobirthing there is no way I would have had the incredible experience that I ultimately did.  

Initially I had thought it was supposed to be hard work, and it does take some dedication, but I quickly incorporated it into my routine, and it soon became something pleasurable that I looked forward to.

From the point of giving birth, I was in a state of euphoria which lasted for weeks. It powered me through the sleep deprivation and fostered incredible bonding with my baby.

Are you ready to step into your power?
