I am a local antenatal teacher and postnatal practitioner. I'm also a part time student (BSc Biology), a wife and mum to 3 gorgeous children who are 8 and 6 (twins!).
I've been working with Bucks MVP for the last 4 years and am passionate about birthing individuals having informed choice, the support they need and a positive birth experience, no matter the path their birth takes.
Social Media Secretary
I have been involved with the MVP for a number of years now and was Co Chair until stepping down in Sept 2020. I am now responsible for managing Social Media for the MVP
I have lived in Aylesbury my whole life and have 4 daughters, all born at Stoke Mandeville. I keep busy with my work as an antenatal teacher and doula which I love.
An amazing team
The MVP includes a hardworking core of volunteers made up of parents, local birth workers, antenatal teachers, hypnobirthing practitioners and more. You are likely to come across them in local groups and out in the community collecting feedback.
We also have a wide representation of staff from across the NHS and related professions. In addition to the MVP chairs and volunteers at meetings we will also usually have in attendance the Head of Midwifery, Consultant Midwife, Antenatal and Postnatal ward representatives, GP's, Obstetric representative, Infant Feeding Team representative, Health Visiting representative, Bucks CCG Representative, Heathwatch representative, Bedfordshire University representative and many more.
Helen was appointed in Sept 20 as the new Co-chair and more detailed bio will follow, but she is a local doula and hypnobirthing teacher who has been working with Bucks MVP for serveral years and we are delighted to have her as Co-chair!
