My Education

“Educating the mind without educating the heart is really no education at all…” – Aristotle

My education as a birth-worker is on-going and will continue for as long as I continue supporting women. I learn something from every family I work with, and it is my responsibility to keep myself up to date with birth knowledge as it changes and evolves. A lot of this is via reading articles, journals and new books as they are published (check out my Library for books I have available for lending) and some involves attending courses and workshops. CPD learning that I have attended is listed below:

  • – Original Doula Training: Doula UK, September 2012
  • – EFT and Hypnosis for Childbirth: Surelife Hypnotherapy, December 2012
  • – Practical Skills to Prevent and Resolve Malpresentation: Selina Willis, April 2013
  • – When Survivors Give Birth: Penny Simpkin, May 2013
  • – Breastfeeding Festival, June 2014 & 2015
  • – Recipes for Normal Birth: Sara Wickham, March 2016
  • – Healthy Birth, Healthy Earth: Findhorn Foundation, September 2016
  • – Breastfeeding Workshop for Doulas, September 2016
  • – Supporting Every Birth Workshop (Baby Loss), April 2017
