Hi, I'm Sally and welcome to Positive Reasons!
I live in Brighton, with my 2 children, husband and cat!
I am passionate about pregnancy, birth and early parenthood and have
over 10 years experience of working in the community supporting pregnancy and families.
I am a qualified Hypnobirthing Antenatal Teacher and Birth and Postnatal Doula.
I believe in knowledge is power and my motto is
Make the right choices for you!
What have you previously heard about birth?
That it can be calm, empowering and amazing? Or that it can be painful, last for hours and best to get over and done with?
How about early parenting?
That it can be supported and rewarding? Or that is can be exhausting and isolating?
For some people pregnancy, birth and early parenthood can feel very exciting but also scary and unknown.
Perhaps you have seen it represented on TV or heard stories from friends about what to expect but actually you have no idea!
Or this is not your first child and would like to have a powerful and empowering experience!
Learn detailed birth and early parenting preparation to make the right choices for your pregnancy, birth and early parenthood.
Moving you from feeling unsure of what to expect, to having a toolkit you can feel confident about in any situation.
Your experience of birth and early parenthood can stay with you for life, get prepared for the best start possible!

What is hypnobirthing?
The name 'hypnobirthing' can seem confusing but overall it is a logical approach
to birth preparation that can be used for any type of birth.
Every birth has it's own journey and hypnobirthing antenatal sessions
aim to give you the tools to use in any birth experience, no matter what arises.
By having an in-depth understanding of pregnancy and birth
you can make informed, evidence-based choices and
you and your birth partner can gain confidence for an empowering experience.
Who is hypnobirthing benefit?
Hypnobirthing benefits EVERYONE, the Mother, birth partner and baby
Hypnobirthing can be used for ANY TYPE of birth, whether it be
*hospital; home; birthing centre; VBAC, planned or unplanned caesarean;
*spontaneous or induced birth
*first-time, second-time or fifth-time
and used alongside other birth relief methods
Classes can be started at anytime during pregnancy, ideally from 20 weeks.
A Doula is someone who holds a safe, non-judgmental space for you and
provides bespoke emotional and practical care during the antenatal or postnatal period,
in whichever way best supports you.
A Doula is your cheerleader!
Encouraging, listening, supporting you in birth or with your journey into your new family life.
A Doula is a trained support person and not medically qualified so cannot give medical advice.
Currently the Doula services I can provide are limited due to Government Guidelines.
Please contact me on 07956 573713 for more details.
How can a Birth Doula support you?
A Birth Doula's key role is to be with you
during the birth of your baby.
To support your birth choices so you can move forward confidentially towards your birthing experience, whether it be in hospital or at home.
Research has shown that having continuous care during your birth can help support
a more comfortable birth.
How can a Postnatal Doula support you!
A Postnatal Doula can provide physical and emotional care for you and your family,
in your own home, whilst you fully focus
on your birth recovery and new baby.
Support can vary depending on your individual needs
and for an amount of time that works for you.
