SUPPORT THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Pregnancy, Birth / Loss and Parenting are all huge life altering events.
Our minds change and there can be little support to manage all we are going through. Societal pressures can cloud and mislead us making us feel like we're not thriving when in fact we are.
From what I have seen through my own experiences of loss, pregnancy, birth, independent parenting and beyond
it is a vast unknown territory, there are a certain amount of givens however for the most part
do any of us really know what we are doing?
We are in essence all products of our parents parenting, the learnt behaviours and core beliefs that were instilled in our childhoods will most definitely have some bearing on how we parent. There is an array of guides and should’s and shouldn’t do’s out there but lets be honest we are all individuals and so are our children, there is no one size fits all.
For many parents, myself included, there is a huge sense of responsibility, pressure and loss of self and this can have devastating affects on our wellbeing and our children's.
For mothers there is a neurological and hormonal change ( See Blog ) which is overlooked and not widely known.
Talking about things openly and honestly can help to normalise the daily struggles and feelings we all have, being able to address this in a safe & confidential space can make a huge difference to how we function day to day and decrease the chances of Parental Burnout ( See Blog ) You are not in this alone, I would like to offer a supportive role to assist you around whatever situation you are tackling.
I have a keen interest in supporting Parents around areas such as Independent Parenting, Emotional Well Being, Carrying the Mental Load, Parental Guilt, Pressures, Responsibility and Burnout, Parenting Issues , Post Natal Depression, Abortion & Pregnancy.
I will be part of the Postnatal Pod, a 6 week course for mum & baby to attend starting on Thursday 10th June and every week thereafter up until Thursday 15th July at Woodbury Village Hall. Click here for details

I am passionate about supporting pregnant and new mums and will be available to chat with during our walks if there is anything that you would like to talk about during our time together.
All conversations are treated with upmost confidentiality.
As we ease out of restrictions and adapt to ‘new normals’ together, spending time with others who have been through similar experiences such as pregnancy / give information birth during lockdown is a great way to feel uplifted and form new friendships
