Hey Mama...You're here because you're struggling with anxiety or your emotions during your pregnancy or after having a baby...
You’ve had a positive pregnancy test or recently welcomed home your newborn but it doesn’t feel anything like you imagined or wanted.
Instead of feeling joy, excitement and calm, you’re filled with anxiety, stress or fear. You have these worries but you don’t feel anyone really understands.
Maybe you’ve had experience of loss or infertility?
Maybe you’re constantly worrying if your baby is OK?
Maybe you’ve had a difficult pregnancy or traumatic birth?
You want to feel supported, calm and reassured but you’re not sure if it’s possible.
You want to feel more in control in a time full of uncertainty and vulnerability.
You’re ready to start making the changes you need to get to a place that right now feels impossible (I know how it is cos I’ve been there too).
If this sounds anything like you right now, you’re in the right place…
Hi I’m Manisha.
I’m an antenatal & hypnobirthing teacher, trainee counsellor and perinatal emotional wellbeing practitioner.
I’m here to help you feel less guilty about struggling so much by giving you the space to talk openly about what’s going on, implement effective strategies and make purposeful changes.
I’m here to help you take the steps you need to feel more calm and confident.
Whatever stage of your parenting journey, you’ll be able to completely unload all of 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 changed you need to move you towards the pregnancy and postpartum journey you want.
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 to someone who understands. You are not alone.
I won't judge you...
Whatever your birth choices are or your parenting style, 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’m not only a doula and a hypnobirthing teacher, but I’ve also done coaching and counselling training, which means I have the skills to really listen to what you want and help you find a path that works for you.
You're my priority...
I only take a limited number of clients on at the same time so I can focus on you. My goal is to make sure you feel emotionally and mentally supported so that you can enjoy pregnancy, birth & motherhood.
“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.”
How I Can Help...
“Manisha was brilliant in helping me deal with pregnancy anxiety during my second trimester. Her understanding and guidance, along with practical advice, helped to make me feel supported and to rationalise my worries. I would definitely recommend to all anxious, expectant parents!”
