About Me

My photo
Rugby, Warwickshire, United Kingdom
I am a mother of five children, four daughters all born in hospital (two now grown up!) and my son, born at home. One thing I know is that I would have had much more positive birth experiences if I had been well informed and well supported. Many women are feeling the same way and are seeking out the extra care a Doula can give them. I have been a Birth and Postnatal Doula for several years now, and am also a Lamaze Childbirth Educator providing 1-1 classes in antenatal preparation and baby care. I have special classes to help parents prepare for twins, homebirth, waterbirth, and parenting a new baby/babies. I am also a qualified antenatal teacher with the NCT and facilitate group classes in the Rugby/Coventry area. As a single mother I have an affinity with the special challenges of one parent families, or families where one partner is unavailable much of the time to offer support.

Demeter Retreat - Celebrating Motherhood!

A huge thankyou to all the wonderful mothers who came along to the Demeter retreat yesterday and shared a wonderful day all together - celebrating motherhood!

We shared a lovely breakfast, lunch and evening meal together and took part in activities that made us think about our lives as women, mothers, lovers, wives, daughters.. the list goes on.. !!

A special moment for me was the barefoot outside yoga under the light of the full orange moon - the largest full moon in 18 years - beautiful! :-)
The next womens retreat will be a 'red tent' event.. email me or Rebecca for details...
