Pregnancy, birth and parenthood are an enriching, powerful and life changing journey. The journey from conception, through pregnancy, during birth and the newborn period is an emotional roller coaster, whether it is your first or your fourth time.
Sanita’s journey as a Doula and Holistic therapist has its roots in her childhood and the knowledge of her ancestors from India. She has always been surrounded by strong, spiritual, beautiful, nurturing women and was fortunate enough to be raised by two of them; her mother and grandmother. They have been her greatest teachers in life and her three beautiful children who enrich and illuminate her life. Sanita has deep gratitude for her ancestral wisdom and her labour, birth and postpartum experiences.
As a result, she is passionate about enhancing nurtured beginnings and empowering parents through the pregnancy, birth and in the postpartum period. Sanita finds immense beauty in seeing a woman carry and nurture a life force within, and birth using her primal instincts and inherent wisdom. As a sacred mother roaster providing nourishing and warming services to support a woman’s postpartum journey, shes uses her ancestral knowledge for aiding postnatal recovery. Other than raising her own children, there is nothing that brings her more joy other than working with pregnant and postpartum women supporting them raise a conscious, loved, grounded and a nurtured new generation.
The core of her philosophy in working with families to uplift and immerse them in the beauty way- this is beyond the aesthetic, but to bring back the DEEP CONNECTION, SACREDNESS and LIGHT for women and families to feel inspired in their journey into parenthood and for them to have healing memories and positive beginnings of their journey through parenthood, whether it is their first or fourth time.
Sanita is also a complementary therapist for Maae©, providing a range of nurturing therapies (massage, pregnancy massage, indian head massage, reflexology, facial reflexology, zone face lift, myofascial release and shamanic energy healing), Tantra (for women only), sound healing (incl gong sessions), a USUI Reiki Ryoho/ HOLY FIRE Reiki Master/Teacher (trained in the degrees of Shoden, Okuden and Shinpiden). She is also a member of the CHNC, UK Reiki Federation, Association of Reflexologists, and Doula UK and her practice reflects the code of conduct of these professional bodies.
Sanita also runs pregnancy and postnatal wellbeing retreats with Lynn Murphy, co-director of the Active Birth Centre. She is an active lay member of a Maternity Services Liaison Committee (MSLC) to help improve local maternity services and a volunteer with the charity Birth Companions working with vulnerable women.
Aside from all the above, she has over 15 years experience of working within the field of Mental Health and Addictions (Drugs & Alcohol) supporting vulnerable people and has a degree in Psychology and Masters Degree in Addictions.
Wishing you gentle pregnancy, birth and a beautiful journey through motherhood.
Love, Peace and Light.
