Founder and Facilitator of Conscious Birthing
Kate has been involved with the process of pregnancy and birth since 1994, when she had her first child. The experience was so immense and utterly life changing that through it, her passion for this phase of life was initiated.
Friends began to request Kates’ presence at their births, and by the time she trained as a Doula in 1998 with Michel Odent, she had already attended several hospital and home births. Kate went on to also train as a Holistic Childbirth Educator.
Since then, Kate has continued to support women and their families all over the UK and has based the Training Courses on the knowledge and experiences gathered during this time.
Kate’s ongoing studies have been with Michel Odent, Ina May Gaskin, Robbie Davis-Floyd, Elizabeth Davis, The Holistic Childbirth Educator Foundation, Janet Balaskas at the Active Birth Centre and Suzanne Yates at Well Mother (Shiatsu for Labour) and has published articles in 'The Green Parent' and spoken at Findhorn's 'Healthy Birth, Healthy Earth' conference.
Kate has two children and lives in Glastonbury, Somerset, working in many neighbouring areas as well as further afield, and even abroad!
For Kate, pregnancy and birth is a truly bountiful time, which deserves to be reclaimed as the powerful rite of passage which it has always been; learning, honouring and celebrating this with others is her passion and her life’s work.
