“Samantha is a very down to earth person. She was never overbearing and always carried with her an aura of calm. We felt that she respected and fully supported our wishes, and whilst she provided us with a lot of interesting and useful information, she was very conscientious about not pushing her opinion.”

Samantha was like a guardian angel – constantly there but rarely seen. Her presence was very reassuring, a calm, wise presence at the periphery of the action. She helped physically by keeping the water at a constant temperature whilst dad and mum were deeply involved in the labour. She was constantly vigilant and able to provide things we needed (water, towels, etc.) without ever being overly involved.”

Samantha has an approachable and easy way; which is relaxing, comfortable and grounding.

Her in-depth and up-to-date knowledge is very reassuring and consolidates her ideas, which are very creative and inspiring.

She combines the latest in cutting edge research with timeless, sacred birthing symbolism.

First Time Mum, Natural Homebirth, South Wales

Sam was a very special last minute addition to my birth plan, and although we had only met once before my labour, I felt like she was an old friend. She helped me assert myself when I would have otherwise given in, and with her help I was able to achieve my dream birth.

Her generosity, passion, knowledge, empathy and commitment were invaluable. Having no partner of my own, Sam gave me the extra support and confidence I needed and was an extremely calming and grounding presence at the birth. She helped me feel totally at ease and I found that even during the more unpredictable moments of my labour, I still had complete trust in my body.

I could feel her joy during the whole process and this made labour feel as celebratory as the moment my baby was born.

I’m so grateful for the work Sam does for women and families.
