Essential Oils

 Essential oils are a wonderful way to enhance your pregnancy and birth experience.

They help with relaxation, are uplifting and invigorating, and can be used to resolve many pregnancy related issues.


I am here to educate, inform and empower you and your birth companion, so you can have a wonderfully relaxed pregnancy and a safe and amazing birth!


It's so relaxing to prepare for your birth with HypnoBirthing®! You and your birth companion will come closer than ever before. This is your amazing journey into parenthood!

Being a midwife, I searched for the best- and I found it. After three amazing birth experiences with my own children, (two of them completely pain free), I am ready to teach you - so you will be the expert about your birth!

Treat yourself to a relaxing and joyous pregnancy 

and have a wonderful and happy birthing day!
