Aromatherapist & Midwife

About Emily

When Emily isn't running our Teddington and Chiswick courses, she is a midwife at Chelsea & Westminster, a qualified aromatherapist and specialist in Reflex Zone Therapy (RZT) for pregnancy and birth. Mum to a four-year-old son (and a dog!) she is based in West London, from where she runs her own business selling personal blends through Etsy and creating content for her successful Instagram account. A truly modern midwife, with women at the heart of all her work, Emily is loved by all the couples she teaches in Teddington and also meets in Chiswick where she hosts our complimentary therapies class.


"Great informative classes in a relaxed environment exactly what we were looking for! Loved all the laughter from our group, who new antenatal could be so much fun! We felt comfortable asking any questions within the class as the environment was relaxed with partners included in conversations. The obstetrician led and the place of birth evenings were very informative and something I could not have found in a book."

Jenna Carter

"Really informative and done in a relaxed, fun & supportive way. Having spoken to friends who have done NCT, this is streets ahead. Being a first time Mum, all the information thrown at you can be a bit daunting but THBC covers everything you need to know and more without over whelming you and with a lot of laughs along the way. The added bonus of the amazing midwife being on hand is invaluable and was an enormous support to us when I had a few wobbles after the birth."

Lucie Young

"Amazing, holistic course covering pregnancy, labour and breastfeeding from all perspectives. Hypnobirthers, reflexologists, aromatherapists, obstetricians, nutritionists and more - honestly something for everyone to learn, from all angles! I cannot tell you how happy our birth was thanks to these classes. A fun, relaxed but informative way to prepare yourself for the most amazing experience of your lives!"
