Sonographer/Maternity care assistant/Doula

I began my Midwifery Assistant journey in 1996, working at the Leicester Royal Infirmary, gaining a wealth of experience in all aspects of midwifery working in all areas to include delivery suite, theatres, antenatal, postnatal wards and the antenatal clinic.

In 2002 my son aged 10 years (now 21) was diagnosed with Leukemia, leading me to give up my job to become his full time carer.

In 2004 I returned to working in the midwifery services joining the Hinckley Community Midwifery Team, whilst also working as a Health Care Assistant at Desford medical Centre. I gained qualifications NVQ 3 diploma in health care and various certificates for clinical procedures including phlebotomy.

In 2011 I completed courses in Natal Hypno birthing, Leading Parent craft classes and began my working as a Doula.

In 2012 with the support and encouragement from Donna and Liz I attended Birmingham University where I have completed my qualifications as a sonographer. in 2013 I completed a diploma in baby massage.

In April 2013 I began working full time at Tummy2mummy. I thank Donna and Liz for giving me this opportunity and having faith in me!

In 2014 i completed my Vaginal scan training and further courses at Sheffield university with in house practical assesments to enhance my skills

I have a supportive partner of 30 years Stuart and 2 wonderful children: Emma 25, and Dean 23, we have 3 dogs and 2 horses that keep us busy with Emma competing in national horse competitions. My Dad, Mum and Step Dad Trev, sister Simone and my precious niece Tia who have always been by our sides supporting us through every step we took.

I am on the committee for The New Dawn Family Support Services, helping organize and supporting fund raising events for this fantastic charity.

I believe that positive support during Pregnancy, labour and Birth will enhance the woman’s experience. I look forward to spending this magical time with families and be part of their own little ’miracle’.
