First of all, congratulations on your pregnancy! I hope you are really excited?
As a midwife for 35 years, I know how pregnancy can be exciting and at the same time worrying.
Are you feeling anxious in between your midwife appointments? Do you feel you don’t have enough time to ask questions as she’s so busy? Would you like more time to spend exploring your pregnancy, labour, birth and postnatal options?
I offer one-off appointments to compliment your NHS care, right through to full antenatal, labour, birth and postnatal packages. Held in the comfort of your home at times to suit you. You may want to discuss induction of labour or have help to make a great birth plan.
Maybe you’d like to feel better about a previous birth experience? We can do this together using a deeply relaxing technique to help you remove distressing emotions attached to your memories. If you have a breech baby I have techniques that are proven to encourage baby to turn!
Please get in touch to see how I can help you achieve a positive pregnancy and birth.

Reflect is a pregnancy support charity based in York and Harrogate. We provide free, impartial and confidential support to men and women facing an unexpected pregnancy choice and to those struggling after experiencing pregnancy loss, including miscarriage, still-birth and post-abortion. We can offer face to face advice and support at our venues in Acomb and Harrogate, or if this is not convenient, we can also arrange other appointment locations or provide help over the telephone or by email.
Why We Help:
We offer this time and space at Reflect, with non-judgemental support and information to help people make the decision best for them. We provide emotional and practical support whatever the outcome and aim to help all men and women access the services they need.
“When I contacted Reflect I literally felt like I couldn’t go on…I thought I had to be strong and ‘get on’ and not show my vulnerable side…I knew they would help me, being specialists in what they did, but I never expected such warmth, love, support and gentle encouragement…Without Reflect I hate to think where I would be now…The pain and heartbreak hasn’t gone away, but Reflect has helped me to see the sunshine through the clouds…I am forever and eternally thankful.”
Emily and Karl’s Story
“Losing two much wanted babies in quick succession last year left Karl and I feeling that our light had gone out and that only darkness lay ahead for us…I was a complete mess and unable to return to work, and Karl’s heart was breaking as nothing he could do or say would comfort me…We can safely say that the day we found Reflect was the day that changed our lives forever…We cannot emphasise enough the importance of the work that Reflect does, or how essential it is that they become more widely recognised so that other people in need can benefit from their incredible support. Their help has had a huge and everlasting impact on our lives.”
Your baby’s umbilical cord is a valuable source of stem cells which can be collected and stored. These cells may be used as a crucial part of treating or curing an illness. Cord blood is the blood that remains in the placenta and umbilical cord after a baby is born, which are both usually thrown away after the birth. However, as this is a rich source of stem cells, it can be collected, processed and stored to be used later for potential treatment.
Based just outside London, Smart Cells are the UK’s first cord blood storage company. Collecting and storing cord blood from newborn babies has become more well-known over recent years, but many are still unaware of the fantastic opportunities it can give your child and their siblings throughout their lives.
More than 80 medical conditions, ranging from cerebral palsy to sickle cell disease and many more in between, can currently be treated using cord blood stem cells.
Smart Cells are currently leading the way in advances into stem cell research to identify more conditions and symptoms that can be treated using cord blood, with 20 stem cell samples released for clinical use since 2005 – this is more than any other private cord blood company in the UK.
Pregnancy and starting a family are full of special moments that you don’t want to miss. You only have one chance to store your baby’s cord blood. Contact Smart Cells to find out more.
