Sue joined Doula UK in 2009 and is a recognised birth and postnatal doula.
In 2014 she qualified as a certified teacher of Janet Balaskas' Active Birth Workshop.
I support women and their partners with antenatal preparation, giving them information that deepens their understanding of birth physiology, the hormonal process of birthing and how to maximize their potential for an empowering experience.
I believe that the majority of women can give birth without medical assistance. I aim to build their confidence in their bodies ability to give birth and help women to have a good experience no matter what twists and turns their labour takes.
I feel privileged to support women throughout this important & momentous occasion in their lives. I enjoy supporting families postnatally and helping to make the transition into parenthood or a larger family a little easier. Further Details About Sue

MASSAGE & REBOZO TECHNIQUES FOR LABOUR
Wednesday 20th February 2019, 7-9.30pm.
Wednesday 24th April 2019, 7-9.30pm.
This workshop aims to give pregnant women and their birth partners the confidence to use the invaluable tools of massage & rebozo technique in preparation for, and during labour.
A rebozo is a long piece of cloth often worn by Mexican women and a traditional midwifery tool for pregnancy, labour and post-partum. These are really useful tools for birth partners as you will be able to help your partner to relax and stay calm which promotes the release of essential birthing hormones. The workshop also includes information on movements and positions for labour and birth
Please wear comfortable clothing for sitting on a birth ball, kneeling & lying on a yoga mat
