Julie    Your SimplyBirth Placenta Consultant

Julie and Grand daughter

I am a mother of two and grandmother of two, with a nursing background and a  first class honours degree in " Women's Health" Whilst studying I became interested in pregnancy and childbirth, especially when I realised how medicalized it had become. In 1999 I had the privilege to train under the guidance of the world renowned Dr Michael Odent and became a recognized Doula UK Birth Doula, during which time I was delighted to be short listed for "Doula of the Year "
I sat on the Maternity Services Liaison Committee for my Health Authority Region in my capacity as a councillor with the local Community Health Council, during this time I constantly campaigned for a birthing pool for my local hospital.

In 2004 I trained as a practitioner in birth hypnosis so that I could offer women a more natural, gentle, and calmer approach during birthing. This was followed by a workshop in Natal Hypnotherapy.

Finally in 2009 I completed my training as a Placenta Encapsulation Specialist with IPEN and I now concentrate on educating new mums about the possible uses of their placentas. I recently retired from 15 years of doulaing.
