About Rebecca


Rebecca is a former midwife who specialises in helping to provide post-natal support. She explains her background and approach:


"I've has worked in the NHS for over 30 years as a midwife, health visitor and infant feeding specialist. This means that I have a wealth of experience and expertise, all supported by the most up-to-date thinking. There really aren’t many issues to do with pregnancy, birth, the fourth trimester and early parenting that I haven’t already come across and supported families through. Combining this with my belief in the strong connections between Mind, Body, Spirit and Mother Nature enables me to offer a holistic and intuitive focus when I am supporting young families.


Sometimes the most important beginning can feel like the hardest one. Becoming a parent is a monumental transition of body, mind and soul, the most transformative of experiences. When a baby is birthed, a mother is also birthed.


Even so, many new parents find the first few weeks and months overwhelming and confusing.


The scientific evidence is overwhelming – from conception up until two years of age is what will shape a baby’s brain, build resilience and create an ability to form healthy relationships throughout their adult life – and so it’s important to be able access holistic."
