Fertility & Birth Support

I have worked with fertility, pregnancy and birth for many years, and was privileged to do so in between each of the four pregnancies and births of my own children.

Please note that this work is separate to, and different from, the psychic mediumship work I offer. I do work intuitively, but also draw on my decade’s plus experience, outlined below.

I will never predict, or guide an individual to believe, whether they will or will not become pregnant or birth positively. I can only work within the boundaries of my own knowledge and experience as a doula and fertility and pregnancy complementary therapist. I am not medically trained.

From 2003 to 2014, I worked as a reflexologist specialising in fertility, pregnancy and birth, and this lead to birth doula training with world renowned obstetrician and water birth pioneer, Michel Odent. I was the only student on that training who had not yet given birth herself.

I went on to work in the small private clinic of Dr. Gowri Motha, based at Dr. Yehudi Gordon’s clinic, Viveka, and with Janet Balaskas at The Active Birth Centre. In 2008, while pregnant with my first child, I flew to The Farm in Tennessee, USA, to complete immersive training with Ina May Gaskin. I also completed training in Birth Crisis and Trauma with the late, great Sheila Kitzinger.

Here in Brighton, I’ve worked with Mothers Uncovered as a facilitator for a monthly birth stories group, listening to women who wish to share their experiences of birthing in order to help with processing and healing.

I’ve been privileged to birth each of my four children in my own home, in a positive and peaceful process. However, had it been necessary to transfer to a hospital I would happily have done so. I passionately believe in every woman’s right to birth where, and with whom, she feels safe. Each birth is unique and through my many years’ work as a reflexologist and doula I came to understand that how a woman perceives her body, mind and spirit can have a dramatic effect on how she births.

If you are thinking about becoming pregnant or struggling with fertility and wish to talk through your perceptions about this, I can offer a wealth of experience to help you on your way with a one to one counselling session or one of my two intuitive counselling packages.

I work both in person from my home in Brighton, U.K. and also online. I draw on my training and experience as a healer to hold space for you to talk through your concerns.

If you wish to share details of a traumatic birth experience, I can help. I was privileged to train with the late Sheila Kitzinger in Birth Crisis and Trauma, and hold a certificate in counselling skills from the Gestalt Centre in London.
