My core belief is that birth is essentially a simple process and women are brilliant at it! Especially when they have lots of love and support from people they know and trust and that’s backed-up strongly with evidence from research. Working as an independent midwife is fantastic, because it gives me and a woman time to get to know each other and build up a mutually satisfying relationship.

Being treated with dignity and respect along with your support and compassion, gave me the confidence and strength to take responsibility for my choices that were not necessarily regarded as the ‘norm’

I value putting women at the centre of their maternity care, supporting all of their choices and being a strong advocate for them when working with other health care professionals.
I’m an expert in home birth, water birth and VBAC.

I’m trained in the use of homeopathy, aromatherapy and moxibustion for turning breech babies. I enjoy working alongside midwifery and works-experience students sharing my knowledge and experience, attending local home birth groups and collaborating with complimentary therapists.

I run Kent Midwifery Practice offering women one-to-one ‘gold standard’ midwifery care in the South East, though I will travel much further afield to help women give birth.

I live in Ashford in Kent with Mike but our grown-up children drop in lots. Live music, travel and camping are our favourite activities and climbing Kilimanjaro is on the vision board right now! Have a look at Kent Midwifery Practice website featuring some of my videos.

You put me at complete ease whenever we met. By the time labour started, I trusted you completely which definitely contributed to the quick labour as I felt safe
