I'm a Hypnobirthing practitioner with a background in mindfulness, and have been working with couples for over 12 years, helping them prepare for birth in a calm, practical, and mindful way. I have three children, all born in calm, loving environments, and whose births have taught me so much about what women in labour need, and the key role that birth companions play.
I've always been fascinated by the father's role in birth. In my classes I see how, with the right knowledge, tools and support, fathers who are initially nervous or concerned, are able to relax and embrace the unique role they will play in the birth. They transform quickly and easily into calm, confident birth companions. This is a gift for their partners and their babies, but also for themselves.

"YOUR BOOK WAS REALLY HELPFUL TO US. EASY TO READ AND VERY REASSURING! AFTER THE BIRTH NOW, I'M STILL USING THE TECHNIQUES TO KEEP MY STRESS LEVELS DOWN."

"UNTIL READING THIS, MY ONLY EXPERIENCE OF BIRTH WAS FROM FILMS AND TV. I FOUND THE SCIENCE ABOUT THE WAYS HORMONES WORK REALLY FASCINATING. OUR BABY IS DUE IN THREE WEEKS AND I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO BEING ABLE TO PUT EVERYTHING INTO PRACTICE."
