I feel passionate about supporting women and offering unconditional support, not only to birthing/postnatal women but to all women. If i can assist a mother to obtain what she desires during one of the most life changing experiences she will ever encounter and if this experience can be embraced instead of endured, then, how lucky am i to be part of this, with you.
