Hi, my name is Natalie Meade. Welcome to my Website (my birth-passion-project).
Website and services created and maintained by Natalie Meade.

“Enjoy my website!
I have put lots of effort, over many, many years, to help you (and all families) to find their full range of choices. I hope you can experience joy, beauty, love and great, emotionally satisfying, support for your hopes and dreams for birth!”
About me: “I am highly qualified and experienced in my field. Every day I work I am filled with passion and joy.
I run high quality, five Sunday, Hypnobirthing/antenatal/parenting education courses and, also, special two-day courses!
I am also, sometimes, able to accept Birth-Doula Support work. A doula strongly enhances your chances of a natural, physiological birth. If I am not available, I will help you find someone 🙂
I work privately, one-to-one. I work on zoom, and I work with large groups face to face at Hamilton.
I LOVE to help women (and partners) find joy, excitement and confidence in birth”
“It is my highest priority to honour and respect the emotional journey – as well as the physical”.
“It is my highest hope that:
All women, everywhere – are treated as absolutely PRECIOUS”.
Birth Education with Natalie:
“Hello, my Birth Education comes from thirteen years of specialised experience as a natural birth educator and birth doula.
My passion, for all humans, brings me to deeply care about you and your birth experience”.
What I do …
“I hope you can realise your wide array of birthing and birth education options – as early in pregnancy as possible.
Because – BIRTH IS AMAZING – I promise!
You just need good preparation and good support”
What about breastfeeding?
Firstly, do everything you can to be educated and informed about the natural physiology of birth and breastfeeding.
After that, you can then make choices that enhance and fit well with your bodies’ natural hormones and systems and your babies natural instincts for feeding, sucking and sleeping.
Personally, I am super glad I persisted with the tough stages of breastfeeding and I was even blessed to experience a five year breastfeeding journey with my last child.
