Hi I’m Manisha. I strongly believe that if you are emotionally well and balanced, and get the support that you need, your perinatal journey WILL be calm, positive and gentle whatever your situation.
I’m here to support you through the emotional rollercoaster that pregnancy and having a baby can bring. Whether that’s because you’ve experienced loss, infertility or a previous traumatic pregnancy or birth .
For many parents in this situation, they struggle to deal with the conflict of being grateful and loving our baby together with emotions of fear, loss, guilt, resentment and anger.
All of the support I offer is tailored to each person and couple, taking into account their situation, their previous experience, what they’ve tried before and where they want to be.
I am a trained and experienced antenatal & postpartum educator, hypnobirthing teacher and doula and have combined my skills with my counselling & coaching training .
I offer parents holistic support so they feel emotionally, physically and mentally well. I do this through emotional support, practical guidance, education and mentorship.
Having had my own experience of struggling with infertility for 4 years and 2 years of undiagnosed postnatal depression and postpartum anxiety after my 3rd, I use my knowledge, experience and skills to help you feel emotionally balanced and have a positive journey.
Hi I’m Manisha.
I’m a Perinatal Emotional Wellbeing Practitioner specialising in working with families who are anxious.
I’m also an Antenatal & Postpartum Educator & Hypnobirthing Teacher and Trainee Counsellor. My expertise is helping you manage anxiety and emotional wellbeing during pregnancy and after – especially if you’ve experienced previous loss, infertility, or birth trauma.
Whatever stage of your parenting journey, you’ll be able to completely unload your worries, whether it’s about your baby, your emotions, your relationship, your birth or parenting.
I will hold your space and really listen to what’s going on as well as help you implement simple but really effective strategies to make this rollercoaster of a journey, calm.
I will help you to actively make the changes you need to move you towards the pregnancy and postpartum journey you want, whilst understanding the challenges you have.
What Makes Me Different?
I get you...
I know how difficult it is to open up about your struggles, I’ve been there. With me, you don’t have to explain or justify yourself. Instead, you can talk in a safe space and know you’re not alone.
I won't judge you...
It’s normal to have uncomfortable feelings and thoughts that we would rather ignore. I’m not here to judge. I’m here to listen to what you need, where you’re struggling and help you get to the place you want to be.
I have the skills...
I have skills to really listen to you but also help you implement effective strategies that will actually help you in the long-term. I’m here to help you find a path that works for you.
You're my priority...
I only work with a small number of clients at a time so I can focus on you. My goal is to make sure you feel emotionally balanced and mentally supported so you can enjoy pregnancy, birth & parenting.
“When we’re anxious or scared, we start imagining the worst – this triggers a physiological reaction in our body to fight, flight or freeze. If we actively relax and visualise the positives – it will trigger the opposite response, helping us to feel calm and safe. That’s the power of our mind.”
