Hi, my name is Vanessa and I'm passionate about nurturing healthy, happy, natural and conscious mamas.
I'm an Ayurvedic Practitioner, Doula & Coach who specialises in reconnecting women to their own nature and strength in order to birth and mother on your own terms.
If you want to feel more in in harmony and balance with your health, pregnancy, family and partner then I can help you with a bespoke programme of holistic care.
We were never meant to birth and mother alone, so don't! It takes a village to raise a child and a community to support a new mother.
Pregnancy can sometimes be a rollercoaster of a ride with fluctuating hormones and conflicting opinions but you already have all the answers within you. Reach out and get the support you need to have the health and happiness you deserve at this special time.
Book a therapy or treatment, consider hiring a birth and/or post natal doula and let me take the stress out of what can be, a challenging but hugely transformational journey.
I offer a wide range of Ayurvedic Therapies and treatments from Ayurvedic Nutrition & Lifestyle consultations to massages and treatments. All from a local therapy room in Hull, East Yorkshire.
I have everything you need for complete and holistic birthing and early motherhood care and services:
I run training courses & workshops on a variety of health and pregnancy topics:
Ayurvedic Pregnancy & Postnatal care
Introduction to Ayurveda
Ayurveda for Families
Meditation & Relaxation
Your Birth is Just a Thought!
"I've been having massages for twenty years and none compares to the full body Ayurvedic massage. Vanessa has an unbelievable gift."
"The massage itself is unlike any other massage I've had. It is deeply relaxing and feels luxurious, a real treat!"
"Vanessa is extremely professional, yet warm, caring and knowledgeable. The room created the perfect ambience. Being a massage therapist myself I believe my benchmark to be high and I did not leave disappointed. Fantastic experience."
Ayurvedic Doula clients Radha, Mark & Harrison
"On first chatting to Vanessa via Skype she seemed kind and down to earth and we both liked her immediately. Meeting her in person was like meeting up with an old friend - easy to talk to and ask questions. The doula care in labour was AMAZING! As soon as she arrived in labour I felt calm and in control. My labour was long and complicated and I felt safe and supported with her being there. Her massages were excellent and she brought me the best meal I'd ever eaten at her first postnatal visit. Ayurveda helped me to learn about my constitution and the massage and breathing techniques helped me enormously in labour. Everything was what I had hoped for and exceeded my expectations - a warm, friendly and knowledgeable female presence to help me in my transition to motherhood. I was so grateful to have Vanessa by my side during my labour and birth."
Radha Wilson Jeffries
"Having a Doula was ultimately invaluable to my experience as a birth partner, Initially I wasn't sure what to expect, I'd never heard of a doula service before, and wasn't sure what she would offer that would be different to the role of the midwives, Vanessa helped me prepare for our planned home birth and made sure I knew what to expect and how I could help. Unfortunately our original plans changed unexpectedly and we ended up in hospital, Vanessa came as quickly as possible and arrived at quite an intense part of the labour, she instantly brought calm to the room and I could sense that Radha was much happier with her there, throughout the labour she was extremely reassuring and kept me calm when things got a little too much, her being there also meant I could take a break when things got too much, and I knew Radha was in great hands.I'll never forget how much Vanessa helped in bringing our son into the world, we consider her an extended part of the family, I can't recommend her highly enough to anyone consider hiring a Doula."
