Welcome to my website! I am a Doula, Hypnobirthing Practitioner, Breast feeding Peer Supporter and Homeopath, working in Peterborough, Stamford, Kettering, North Cambridgeshire, Rutland and surrounding area. I am also a regular volunteer on the AIMS Helpline.
• Campaigning for better births for all
• Protecting human rights in childbirth
• Independent information about pregnancy and birth
• Raising awareness of research
I have an absolute passion and gift for working with parents and babies. In 2009, as a qualified homeopath, I was asked to attend a friend’s birth to prescribe homeopathic remedies as an alternative to conventional pain relief. I quickly decided to take this interest further and in 2010, I trained with Nurturing Birth to become a recognised birth doula. Since that time, I have helped many many families, supporting and empowering them to have a positive birth experience.
“Verina was there for me before, during and after the wonderful homebirth of my son Johan. Being a doula myself, people were surprised that I would have a doula at my own birth but I had no doubt in my mind that I wanted a doula and that Verina was the doula for me. Verina is a very nurturing, a caring and genuine person and a great source of information”. (Marie De Jonge)
I have always seen a wide range of complaints in my homeopathic clinic even though I have developed a specialist interest in pregnancy and birth and I am always happy to discuss your health concerns with you to see if homeopathy can help you.
