Hi, I am a private midwife, specialist hypnobirthing instructor and doula with over 35 years' experience working in the NHS and privately.


I believe that the majority of women can birth their baby without medical intervention, and that having continued support throughout your pregnancy and labour is one of the biggest contributing factors to achieving this.
I have the knowledge and understanding of the physiology of pregnancy, birth and postnatal period, and of the emotional support and needs of the woman and her partner. With this, I will support you in whichever way you choose to birth and wherever that may be.


Why choose Amanda?

Your labour and birth experiences matter to me.

No, REALLY matter to me.

I want you to have the best time of your life as you plan for and experience your birth journey and early parenting days. This will be one of the most important things you ever do, so let’s make it right!

Together we will explore what an amazing process your body is going through. We will chat endlessly about your pregnancy and birth choices (over copious amounts of tea). We will explore the most up-to-date evidence, teasing out what “fits” for you. You will have the benefit of my 35 years’ midwifery experience and specialist hypnobirthing knowledge.

Let’s get excited about your birth. Let’s get your partner excited about your birth. Let’s get everyone around you excited about your birth!
