after all this journey is about becoming AN EMPOWERED PARENT MAKING CHOICES ABOUT YOUR NEW EXCITING LIFE CHANGE, EVEN IF THIS IS NOT YOUR FIRST RODEO  

I WANT YOU TO FEEL SUPPORTED AND TO MAKE CHOICES THAT ARE SOLELY RIGHT FOR YOU!

I set up Mother & Bump in 2008 to help women have a relaxed pregnancy and a birth of their choice, so they can enjoy their babies when they arrive.

 

The birth of my son had a profound impact on my life; neither my pregnancy nor the birth were easy, but they were certainly an education! I learnt that if I had been more self-empowered and more knowledgeable, many things could have been different. This was the inspiration for my work with pregnancy, birth and beyond. My wonderful son is now 15 years old and he brings my husband and I much pleasure every day.

 

My passion for pregnancy naturally led me into working with babies, teaching baby massage to parents and carers one –to-one and in groups and working with parents supporting as a Postnatal Doula.

In my early Pregnancy Massage work, I built fantastic relationships with my pregnancy clients and I was often invited to support their labour and birth. This encouraged my journey nine years ago to train as a Birth and Postnatal Doula. I have not looked back since! I love my work and now also support parents teaching Antenatal one on one or in group settings. In 2015, I furthered my studies to becoming a KG Hypnobirthing Teacher. My journey with parents and babies just keeps growing and I love and feel passionate about my work! I am the Volunteer Co-ordinator at Queen Elizabeth Woolwich Hosptial and have been helping to run the events over the last three years. I also now lead a FREE Walk and Talk for my local community that is run each and every Thursday in Eltham. This is a great way of getting my clients out for some fresh air as well as meeting other local mamas who can share experinces, support each other and make friendships. I think I will just keep learning and sharing.
