Birth Preparation

I teach 'Signature' antenatal classes for the NCT in the Royston area, and also Saffron Walden and Biggleswade/Sandy and district. You can find a course which suits you by entering your due date here. I also occasionally run NCT refresher courses (for those having a second or subsequent baby) and waterbirth workshops. I have a number of fantastic colleagues locally, but if you would specifically like to come to one of my courses you can ask our course co-ordinator or contact me and I'll provide upcoming dates.

NCT Relax Stretch and Breathe offers gentle yoga-based exercise suitable from 12 weeks of pregnancy right through to the birth. Classes are held at Coombes Community Centre in Royston on Tuesday nights from 8.00-9.30pm and cost £10 per session (or £50 for 6 sessions). Each class includes breathing awareness, yoga postures, preparation for labour, relaxation, discussion and refreshments. I'm loving teaching this fantastic class. If you'd like to book or talk to me more, email me here.


NCT Mother and Baby Yoga provides a wonderful opportunity for you as a new mum to ease your way back into exercise and get in shape after the birth of your baby. Each class comprises gentle yoga-based exercises for you and your baby. There will also be time for refreshments and a chance to meet others locally with small babies. The classes are suitable for mothers from 6 weeks after the birth. Classes cost £50 for 6 (you can come for a taster before you commit) are on Monday afternoons from 1.30pm-3.00pm at Whaddon Village Hall near Royston.

What I offer


Here you'll find a little bit about what I can offer you during your pregnancy and beyond. When I rule the world, all pregant women and their supporters, and all new parents will have the resources, support and confidence to enjoy the journey and blossom into fab new families. So - if you can't find what you're looking for here, talk to me and let's see if we can make it happen!

Closing the Bones is a deeply nurturing, restorative massage often given to women following the birth of a baby. The mother's abdomen and hips are massaged and her hips are held, rocked and then wrapped snugly in rebozos, or long shawls. I have recently trained in the techniques for Closing the Bones and am excited to be able to offer it in my local area.

"Amazing, emotional and cleansing. I feel very supported as a new mum and feel hugged by the love this ceremony brings"

If you'd like to know more about Closing the Bones - have a look here and if you'd like me to close your bones, or to discuss it further, contact me here
