My name is Sian Kershaw, I was born in Bristol and have lived there most my life. I spent 3 years living in New Zealand where I travelled and gave birth to my son. I returned back to the UK where I now live in Caldicot commuting each week into Bristol to support clients.
I feel my purpose is to support the coming home to your mind and body during new beginnings. With a compassionate approach to my support I hope to empower both birthing person and birth partner.
Values lie at the heart of my services, and it is my mission to provide every client with respect and understanding. My passion was born from the birth of my son, a close friend of mine birthed her daughter in the UK at the same time I birthed in NZ. I found our stories differed hugely and couldn’t help feel that the maternity service I received help to inform and empower me versus this one story where that was not the case.
I believe everyone has the right to an informed birth, and I’m passionate about being able to support you in whatever your choice may be.
I welcome all my clients as they are, I see and value your background, your heritage, your diversity and your cultural beliefs, and welcome including this into your birth.
I am adaptable to what you and your family needs, because I understand that needs differ from family to family.
I have completed my training with Red Tent Doulas, with Nicola Goodall. This course is recognised by Doula UK. I am always willing to learn and be educated on anything I don’t have a full understanding about.
My aim is to support you to have the birth you desire, with Compassionate Hypnobirthing and to help with that fourth trimester we so often overlook.
A little bit more about me; I am an outdoor lover and spend time at the community garden helping where I can and learning constantly. I love astrology, I'm definately no expert but just find it fascinating. I've watched 'stink' maybe 5 times now an every time it gets me worked up and pushes me to grow my own products of natural products without the chemicals.
I am always reading, I'm sure I have enough books to tide me over for the next few years so have currently put myself on a ban to get through them. There is tonnes more of interests which I will one day add to here.
