I set up Mother & Bump simply because I know how important it is to feel supported on this exciting but overwhelming journey of Pregnancy, labour, birth and new parenthood.
I believe it negatively impacts us if we are left alone without physical, mental, and emotional support for both mother and baby.
The birth of my son had a profound impact on my life; neither my pregnancy nor the birth of my child was 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 passion Over the last 15 years has taken me on a path of working with families offering Maternity Massage and talking Therapy skills, Doula Services, Baby care and massage & Antenatal courses. I am also a Integrative Counsellor.
Specialising in Pregnancy, Pre & Postnatal Massage Treatments, Doula Support and Hypnobirthing.
As a Remote and in-person Doula. Natelie will support your pregnancy and birth journey. You may feel you just need that extra support during your pregnancy, labour, and birth and in the early postnatal period, alongside your birth partner.

Natelie will provide both practical and emotional support through your pregnancy, by creating a package to suit your needs.

Once the baby has arrived, it’s important, if a little harder to find time for that postnatal massage. Not only is your body recovering from childbirth, but your new job as a mum: carrying, feeding, and falling asleep with your baby in strange positions.

Our Therapies and Birth related services are professional, safe and have the highest calibre. I I I am fully qualified, fully insured and are CRB (Criminal Record) checked.
I am committed to further training and staying updated and informed of any changes that impact our client's birthing rights to information. I also undertake yearly CPD training.
I pride ourselves on working safely. I carry out health screenings before undertaking any massage treatment. Consultations I also given for any Talking Therapies. I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework.
When a treatment is deemed not safe, we will not work outside of our area of expertise and will refer our clients to the relevant health professional. I offer practical and emotional support but not advice to the mother or parents, therefore reminding them to find their own inner power and confidence to make their own choices.
I recognise that pregnant people are entitled to make their own choices about their pregnancy, birth and feeding method so, without judgement, I support each person's decision. I show our clients the highest level of care and support to demonstrate that I am sensitive, nurturing and empathetic and non-judgemental.
I present ourselves and our equipment at all times in a professional & clean manner.
I believe that parents and children are at the centre of the world. We need to look after parents during pregnancy and birth, so they may go on to look after their children unhindered and free from mental or ill health.
