More information

I live in South Staffordshire with my husband. We have four lovely grown up children born in 1983, 1985 1988 and 1989 and four beautiful grandchildren born in 2005, 2006, 2009 and 2012.

I have been supporting women and their families for the last 21 years. Following the births of my children, I discovered that there was an intense passion within me to support women and their partners enjoy their own birth experiences, as I did mine. Therefore, in 1992, I became a Health Care Assistant on a Maternity Unit at a local hospital and then in 1999 I began my midwifery training. Sadly in 2001, I ended my studies due to one of my children becoming ill following an accident.

In 2007, I went on to complete two Doula UK approved Doula courses; one with Dr Michel Odent the French Obstetrician, author and animated lecturer, who is world famous for introducing home-like birthing rooms and birthing pools to maternity hospitals and experienced Doula Liliana Lammers of Paramana Doula and the other doula course with Nurturing Birth.

Much of my doula practice has been dedicated to supporting women and their families through pregnancy, labour, delivery and the postnatal period. I feel honoured to bear witness to such a miraculous journey that each woman travels on her path to motherhood.

It is because of my passion to support women and their families that I felt that becoming an IPEN Placenta Specialist too would offer my clients and other potential clients a more holistic service.

The placenta is so powerful.It is not only the tree of life for the baby in utero, but also the tree of postnatal healing for both the mother and her baby.

My family is now complete, but I so wish that what I know now about the benefits of consuming the placenta I wish I knew when I was having my own children as I would have definitely used my placenta for postnatal healing.
