A biology research scientist by training (I have a PhD in biology and 20 years of research experience), I have been working as a perinatal educator, doula and healer since 2010. I also have a diploma of Higher education in Antenatal education.

Having mastered a range of pregnancy, birth and postnatal support techniques, such as massage, rebozo, birth and postnatal rituals, energy healing and babywearing, I have been teaching these skills to parents and perinatal professionals in live workshops since 2012 and in this capacity I have trained several hundred people.

This means that I have both the academic background and the practical experience to know how to package and transmit information in a way that allows students to learn easily and enjoyably. Another aspect of my teaching is that I like¬† offer knowledge and help you find your own way of doing things, rather than a prescriptive “do it like me” approach.

My unique, signature teaching approach, blends traditional knowledge with scientific evidence.
