Too often I hear women tell me stories such as, "I had to have a cesarean and I really didn't want to, but baby is healthy, so that's ok". These words are coming out of their mouths, but their eyes tell me a different story; one of pain, loss, sorrow, heartbreak and disconnection. No woman should feel like this!

I experienced a medically complicated 1st pregnancy that resulted in a pregnancy and birth very different to the one I had hoped for. It was very traumatic and stressful and as a result I suffered post natal depression and could not bond with my baby for many months post partum. I embarked on a journey to heal myself, determined to create the much longed for bond with my baby and recover from my birth trauma. I have since had a 2nd pregnancy and birth. They were amazing experiences that have changed me as a woman. My healing experience has empowered me to become a stronger woman with a passion for helping other women to heal from traumatic births.
