I am here to walk alongside you and support your choices as you experience one of life's most important transformations - Matrescence.

"Birth is not only about making babies.  Birth is about making Mothers...  strong, competent, capable Mothers who know themselves and their inner strength"
Barbara Katz Rothman

Grace was amazingly helpful!

I loved being able to talk through different aspects of postpartum life.

She gave me great tips as well as practical questions to discuss with my husband so we felt on the same page. Grace has a lovely encouraging nature and made me feel at ease to ask questions.

"I found my session with Grace very helpful.  It was a good feeling to share this unfiltered story of my birth and it should be something that is recommended to everyone in pregnancy"

Ashley, USA

"Grace made me feel safe to share my story and validated my feelings.  She was great and I’m super grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her"

Mel, Hastings

Grace held space for me in such a genuine way that it allowed me to feel safe and be vulnerable when talking to her about my birth trauma. Grace has a nurturing and caring nature and is very empathetic.  I am so glad that I reached out to Grace, it was the best thing I have done.
