INSPIRED means ‘of extraordinary quality’and  instilling a ‘you can do it’ mindset.

To ‘INSPIRE’ is to ‘encourage, energise, excite, influence, motivate, guide, inform, reassure.

NEXT COURSE- MANCHESTER OCTOBER 5TH/6TH AND THEN 19TH AND 20TH in The Bump and Baby Hideout in Sale.


The ‘Inspire Me’ doula training course is a 4 day course.
I am the writer and trainer of the course . I am the longest standing doula that I know of in the area and have had a very busy doula business for 14 years. I am a hypnotherapist and also a children’s and adult nurse( and I’m an NNEB too!)
I am the trainer for a Hypnobirthing programme in the north of the country and I run three Hypnobirthing classes a week myself locally.
My course will not just give information- my aim is to empower new doulas to hit the road running so my course will give you all the materials to do that.
Below is an idea of the subjects the course will cover and we include lots of visuals, films and role play sessions. Any questions please just give me a ring on 07803 797970 or contact me via my contact form  on the link below
