Giving birth is a powerful, deeply personal spiritual experience and a significant rite of passage. My aim is to support people so they emerge from the childbirth continuum feeling joyful, strong and empowered, and babies are met in the most gentle and physiological way possible, whatever the setting.
As a midwife I am privileged to accompany women and families on this life-changing journey. I help my clients to enjoy this powerful transition by providing a supportive, informative and individualised service, so that the passage through pregnancy, labour and birth feels meaningful and empowering. I believe that midwifery care needs to be flexible and appropriate to each individual person and their family, which is why I have chosen to work independently.
I believe that each birth is a rite of passage, and that each pregnancy, birth and baby comes with their own teachings, lessons and opportunities for growth and transformation. At some level each baby and their embodiment journey sets you up to be the parent that they need. Part of the inner work of pregnancy and birth is in uncovering the unique gifts of your particular journey.
I am a proponent of instinctive birthing, and believe that people have all the knowledge they need to give birth instinctively deep within them. My job is to help create an environment of trust, love, safety and support, so that people can access their inner knowing and surrender to the miracle and intelligence of the birth process, and respond intuitively to their body and their baby within.
"Suyai attended my birth and held the space for me so beautifully. She gave me the strength and faith in my body to birth my baby into my own hands on our living room floor! My partner said afterwards 'if someone had come in, it would look like she wasn't doing anything'... but she was doing so much!"
