Pregnancy North Leeds

Doulas and Independent Midwives

First of all, congratulations on your pregnancy! I hope you are really excited?

As a midwife for 35 years, I know how pregnancy can be exciting and at the same time worrying.

Are you feeling anxious in between your midwife appointments? Do you feel you don’t have enough time to ask questions as she’s so busy? Would you like more time to spend exploring your pregnancy, labour, birth and postnatal options?

I offer one-off appointments to compliment your NHS care, right through to full antenatal, labour, birth and postnatal packages. Held in the comfort of your home at times to suit you. You may want to discuss induction of labour or have help to make a great birth plan.

Maybe you’d like to feel better about a previous birth experience? We can do this together using a deeply relaxing technique to help you remove distressing emotions attached to your memories. If you have a breech baby I have techniques that are proven to encourage baby to turn!

Please get in touch to see how I can help you achieve a positive pregnancy and birth.
