 Since 2000 I have been working in the UK, UAE and USA caring for women during their pregnancy and birth. I have seen birth from many sides - low and high risk, in home and in hospital, in water and on dry land and I have shared birth experiences both happy and sad. And I am still learning! Now living in Germany, my role as a Doula allows me to focus on encouraging women to take control of their childbirth experience through encouragement, education and empowerment. I have always loved forming close bonds with my clients and getting to know them and their families, so that I can better support them when they really need me. I wholeheartedly believe that having the best support and being able to take an active role in your own birth experience, has an amazing impact on the outcome and ultimate perception of that experience. I want to help you to have the best birth experience possible and will be there to advise, suggest, support, listen and guide you through this amazing and life changing event. Whether this is your first baby or you are an experienced Mom, whether you are planning a home birth or an elective C-section, and however you choose to feed your baby, my services are provided without judgement and are tailored to suit the individual needs of you and your family. I can't wait to meet you!

Birth is natural. Birth is sacred. Birth is life-changing.  I am so fortunate to support women and their families in this journey to bring new life into this world. Your birth space is special to me and I will help you keep that space safe and loving.  Your body was made to birth this baby - and I will be by your side as you evolve into a mother (for the 1st, 2nd or 5th time!)
I have been lucky enough to support women in the KMC area for over 6 years.  In addition to being a Certified Birth Doula, I’m also a Certified Lactation Counselor (CLC).  If you plan to breastfeed, I will be able to help support you in that area, as well.  Feel free to check out my Facebook page to see what my previous clients have said about their experience working with me:
