Being a woman is no walk in the park. From period pain to mood swings, birthing to menopause, we seem to dread each milestone instead of welcoming change. 

What if there was a better way?

I help women honour their sacred life cycles and celebrate their femininity. With 15 years of experience as a midwife, I draw on evidence-based holistic tools and therapies including naturopathy, yoga, and mindfulness.
