I run my classes and workshops from my home in the heart of Suffolk and venues in Woodbridge and Ipswich.
I am a mother of three and found all of my pregnancies, labours, births and subsequent journey into motherhood have been a time of great learning and personal growth.
I believe birth preparation needs to be holistic, that is emotional, spiritual and physical, and this has been reflected in the training courses I have taken. Over my three pregnancies and births I have put into practice what I have learned and been able to recover form a traumatic birth, to cope with receiving the devastating news of a genetic abnormality and a subsequent induced birth on a consultant- led ward and finally to achieve a freebirth.
As well as spiritual and emotional preparation I have discovered the importance of physical preparation – going more in depth than kegels to understand that how you use your body and your postural habits can have a huge impact on how your labour goes and how quickly and well you recover.
I believe a mother’s best tool is her instinct, by going with her ‘gut feeling’ is usually the best way for her and her baby. But it is also really important to have a circle of like-minded people around to offer support and share experiences and information.
With Labyrinth of Nurture I aim to offer a place to learn, grow, share experiences and gain support.
I hope to meet you soon.
