Hi!  I’m Helen and I have 6 wonderful children.  Alongside a busy family life, and with the incredible support of my wonderful husband, I have been able to continue my primary work as a Paramedic, a job which I love, and also to pursue my other great passion in life, working in the field of perinatal education.  

I currently work as an Antenatal Practitioner and Breastfeeding Counsellor, a 3 Step Rewind Practitioner for Birth Trauma, and I am trained in Rebozo techniques for pregnancy and birth.  I am also a Birth and Postnatal Doula, and I am delighted to be working as a Hypnobirthing Instructor.  

I chose to train as a Hypnobirthing Instructor with The Little Birth Company because I am passionate about empowering pregnant women and their birth partners to feel prepared, capable and ready for the experiences of childbirth and early parenthood. 

It was not until I gave birth to my 6th baby, in the lockdown of a global pandemic, that I finally achieved a birth which matched my birth plan.  Despite this, I can honestly say that I feel overwhelmingly positive about each of my babies’ births.  My birth experiences, combined with what I know from, and see regularly, in my Paramedic work, have demonstrated to me the power of positive thought and self-belief.  I am a firm believer that feeling informed and in control can positively influence most experiences, and particularly the experience of childbirth. 

I am so excited to have trained with The Little Birth Company, and to be sharing my passion for all things around birth and empowerment with parents-to-be. 

If you think I could help you to prepare yourself for birth, I would be delighted to chat a little more with you so please get in touch 🙂
