I am a shamanic therapist, author and birth keeper, offering hypnobirthing, antenatal education and birth doula support in London.
I provide emotional, mental and practical support as well as advocacy and education to prepare and support the whole family through pregnancy, birth and beyond.
Within the ancient wisdom of shamanism, birth is understood as a transformative rites of passage that can connect you to a deep sense of power. As a shamanic practitioner, I am interested in nurturing your connection to this power and the innate wisdom of your body, to help you have the best birth possible for you, baby and your ancestral line.
As your doula I can provide
- Counselling and coaching to provide emotional support, heal trauma, build power and inner resilience
- personalised hypnobirthing sessions providing tools to reclaim the calm, confident and positive experience that birth can be.
- antenatal information to help you navigate maternity care and make informed evidence-based decisions about your birth preferences and what is the right birth plan for you.
- nature based energy medicine to provide comfort, relieve tension, anchor trust and spiritual relationship with baby and your body during pregnancy and birth
- attendance at your birth, as a gentle presence, to protect your process and birthing space and to advocate for you and your body’s needs.

I live in Woodford Green, East London with my husband and 3 children. Providing services across London and some parts of Essex. Prior to becoming a Doula I worked as a healthcare practitioner within the NHS for many years. So, I’m fully aware of how the system works and how over-medicalised things have become. After experiencing my own childbirths and also supporting friends and family through their personal childbirth and postpartum journeys I realised that empowering women and their partners during this process ignited something within me. As your Doula I will work together with you to attain a safe, calm, and positive birthing experience. Holding space for you, helping you to trust your body, and making sure you are equipped with the information you need to make informed decisions. To provide support and share the joy as new parents are born is what fuels my soul as a Doula

The birthkeeper’s path has unfolded for me over many years. As a practitioner of natural medicine, working in peri-natal health feels like meeting an ancestral calling and being in a space where I can make most positive impact. I apply the skills I have developed to meet the uniqueness of each birth and post partum period. I see birth as a spiritual, physical and emotional event and an important rite of passage where sovereignty is paramount. Deep listening enables me to build connection and support each pregnancy journey in all the many ways it presents itself. I work with homeopathic and herbal medicine and herbal yoni steams, with somatic literacy, yoga and bodywork. I love supporting the often-overlooked period of post partum recovery and integration with massage and traditional closing techniques. I like to accompany these with talking, supportive nutrition, healing plants and remedies to meet the physical and emotional needs of this intense learning period.
