I am originally from the UK but have spent the last 11 years in New Zealand. I am married to Nigel and have two beautiful children, Sophie & Hunter. Both of my babies are "Natural Fertility" babies. I had experienced sub-fertility for many years due to losing a fallopian tube in an ectopic pregnancy, endometriosis and ovarian cysts. But it was through my personal experience with natural fertility methods and the success that I had conceiving my daughter naturally, that I decided to train to become a Natural Fertility educator.
I had always wanted a Natural Birth with my children with the avoidance of any drugs and decided that HypnoBirthing® was the way to go and after a fantastic experience with my daughters birth in 2010 I decided that I would like to become a HypnoBirthing® Practitioner. I trained whilst I was pregnant with my son and was able to birth him calmly and easily at home in July 2014.
I believe in all things natural; natural fertility, natural physiological birthing and natural living & health.
