All mothers need to be nurtured in a way that makes their heart sing; where the 'love hormone' (oxytocin) is in balance so that mothers can feel relaxed, calm and able to cope.

Being a mother of two, I understand about 'the parent journey'. This is why I created Maha Mothering; a private practice that offers one on one innovative support to mothers after childbirth, in the comfort of their own home.

Maha Mothering takes the worry out of those first few months so that you can become that independent, self assured ‘GREAT’ mother you want to be.

I will help you discover what you love to do, what makes you smile and what makes you laugh so as to build your oxytocin reserve and feel as at ease with everyday mothering.

Be prepared for when you go home with your baby. Be enlightened and uplifted when you need it most. Learn about Mothering in the Moment. Arrange your free 'clarity' session prior to your baby's birth.

Getting to know you is important to me - because it's all about you.

 
That is where a postnatal Doula  comes in.
  •  To support mothers after childbirth in a practical hands on way
  •  Sharing skills and knowledge
  •  Helping mothers to relax and tune in to their baby
  •  Being present in the moment throughout the highs and lows
  •  Celebrating successes along the way

This is a treasured moment in time; a time for you to get to know your baby and nurture yourself? Getting the right help, at the right time, can  make this possible.

Feel Nurtured and Supported

Support for Mothers

I am passionate about helping mothers after child birth to become the ‘Great’ Mothers they want to be.  I support and nurture mothers in a way that makes their heart sing. I teach mothers how to embrace ‘Baby Brain’ and activate the love hormone, oxytocin,  so they can feel peace and joy in motherhood.  

Unsettled Infant Support

Parents have often come to me feeling exhausted and overwhelmed, not knowing how to manage their unsettled infant. I teach parents about Newborn Zones and infant SOS’s and provide parents with one on one support, with practical steps they can take to calm their crying baby and help their baby sleep well.

 

Breastfeeding Support

As a Lactation Consultant I help mothers achieve their hearts desire of successfully breastfeeding. I listen to their stories, support their decisions and help them overcome breastfeeding challenges such as mastitis, low milk supply and nipple trauma.  We rejoice in successes together knowing the hard road they have travelled.

 

Meet Margaret

I am passionate about what I do and  have devoted my entire career to caring for mothers and babies.

Having been a midwife for over 30 years, I have shared many  pregnancy journeys; seen firsthand the elation mothers experienced when their baby was first born and the tears that soon followed as they faced the challenges of being new mothers.

When I saw parents in the clinic setting or during home visits, parents were always keen to know how well their infant was growing and developing. They  delighted in their baby’s ability to successfully reach a particular milestone.

I came to realise that most parents want to be good parents; to love and care for  their children, but that  bond shared between a mother and baby sometimes does not always come easily. Working as a lactation consultant and  within local drop-in services, where I listened to "mothers' stories" confirmed for me one fact -  women need to be heard and supported in the immediate weeks after childbirth...  Dare I say, cherished.

 
 Margaret’s Background qualifications: Registered Nurse, Registered Midwife, Child Health Nurse, Internationally recognised Lactation Consultant and Postnatal Doula
