Natalie Meade

During birth, I am your steady rock that completely believes in you, I am calm in the space as I completely believe in birth (I have had two births that both taught me so much and, helped me wake up to my deep, instinctual birth imprint).

During your birth you can look forward to being supported to be intuitive and to allow your body to do it’s special work.

My clients receive complimentary attendance at my courses and events during their pregnancy.

Quote from her page: "Ruth hopes to help women understand the very natural process of labour and have a chance to talk through their concerns and hopes for their labour experience before they get there. She will also provide time to debrief their labour afterwards with in-home visits to support them and their new baby".
