I have supported mums to make informed choices in homebirths, birth centre and hospital births, water birth, epidurals, pethidine, gas and air, hypnobirths, older mums over 40yrs and VBACs
(Vaginal Birth After Caesarean), supporting mums with gestational diabetes, Group B Strep, inductions, c-sections.
My own birth experiences consisted of a hospital birth (2010) and two home water births using hypnobirthing techniques (2012 and 2015) which were attended by my doula.
I can recommend beneficial positions, breathing and relaxing techniques during labour to help things progress nicely as well as maximise comfort. I have experience and training with Spinning
Babies techniques and the mexican rebozo which can be used during pregnancy and labour to help encourage the baby into a position for a quick and easy labour.
I have breastfed all 3 of my children and have experience with bottle feeding my first child.
