1 to 1

One-to-one sessions are entirely flexible - tailored to meet your individual needs and situation.

If you are not quite sure what you’ll need I can help you explore this and we can shape sessions together so that you feel genuinely ready for your baby’s birth. One-to-one sessions take place at my home in the University area of Reading. If an alternative venue is more suitable then I’d be very happy to discuss this with you.

Pause

As a midwife I have lost count of the times I have seen the value of women and their partners taking time to prepare for labour and birth as well as life with a new baby. Pregnancy itself often encourages women to pause and reflect on life with their new baby and antenatal preparation is a wise part of this process.

Discover

In our culture we have lost the art of passing on birth wisdom from woman to woman or from one generation to the next. These antenatal sessions offer you the opportunity to discover that this wisdom still exists and how to embrace it.

Trust

You may have heard it said that there are no guarantees when it comes to giving birth. To some extent this is true and being open to the possibility of receiving help should you or your baby need it is a wise thing but so is understanding that the process of birth itself is a trustworthy one that has stood the test of time.
