I am a registered and practising midwife, have a look at my website to see how I may be able to support you in your journey to conception, pregnancy and beyond. As a reflexologist I mainly work in areas of maternity and women’s health. As a Fertile Body Therapist (FBM) I can support you on your fertility journey. As a Hypnobirthing Practitioner, I can work with you on your pregnancy and birth journey.
In an Independent Midwife Role – PLEASE NOTE *** Due to legislation around insurance for Independent midwives, there are restrictions. Currently I am not working as an Independent Midwife, although this may change in the future.
As your post natal doula, I will visit you in the postnatal period at a mutually agreed date and time to see how you are getting on with your newborn(s) and provide feeding support if necessary . In this role I will not be responsible in a midwife role, but in a supportive role, to empower you in your mothering skills. As your post natal Doula I will work with you and support you in any way that will help you to enjoy your baby or babies. This may include practical skills like comforting baby, tips for “winding”, a bath demonstration, reassuring you on what is “normal”, cuddling your baby whilst you have a well earned bath, shower or nap. I will listen to you and offer positive suggestions. I can provide mini relaxation sessions for you in the way of a foot massage or mini reflexology treatment or self hypnosis, (assuming there are no contraindications). I charge £25 per hour, minimum 2 hours. (depends on my availability)
I can offer to support you with breastfeeding, which means that you can book me to come and visit you after your baby has been born. I can assist and empower you with all aspects of breastfeeding. I have over 30 years experience in this area! You may want this service in addition to or instead of your NHS care. I charge £42 per visit, for approximately 2 hours. (depends on my availability).
There may be an additional mileage charge depending on distance from my base.
