Suzanne Rance Suzanne, author and runologist is Sussex born and Sussex bred with a love of history and a strong drive to research everything.  A Traditional Sussex Witch for over 30 years Suzanne is also a member of the Anglesey Druid Order and the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids. Since my first visit to Wales as a teenager I have felt like I have a foot in two worlds, that of the Welsh and of the English.  I moved to Wales during the 1990’s and learned to speak Welsh for two reasons, one because I sent my son to Welsh school and the other because I loved the sound.  As I learned the language I became increasingly involved in the culture of the land, developing a deep connection with its history and myths.  Finding links between Wales and the Sussex landscape sparked an interest in the land of my birth and a need to connect to my roots there. I returned to Sussex at the beginning of the new millennium and began researching the ancient British landscape of Anderida and the Early English landscape of Sussex.  Having learned Welsh I can see many connections with the Old English Language, especially in pronunciation.     Mentions Suzanne's website http://www.suzannerance.co.uk/   Facebook https://www.facebook.com/runologist   A.D.O. https://www.angleseydruidorder.co.uk/   O.B.O.D. www.druidry.org   Anderida Gorsedd   Children of Artemis Worthing Museum Lyminster Dragon   =============================================Contact Ruthie by email inbedwithadruid@gmail.comFollow Ruthie on Facebook at http://facebook.com/InBedWithADruidor Instagram @InBedWithADruidChat to Ruthie on Twitter @InBedWithADruid
Eva Bay Greenslade A little about me, I am 39, a mum of four, two grown-up babies, and two still growing. I am passionate about women feeling empowered, informed, and positive about their birth experience.  I feel my aim is that every woman will look back on her birth and have no regrets, feel that she did all she could, and feel positive about her experience.  I am also passionate about encouraging parents to think about their fourth trimester, and creating an easier positive supportive experience for parents and baby that is best for their needs.  Ever since I had my first baby I knew I wanted to somehow help other parents.  I knew I wanted to be a doula after attending my sister's home birth.  My niece Nixie's birth was the most amazing experience to be a part of, and it helped that the midwife suggested I become a doula without knowing my thoughts on walking the doula path.   I have undergone Breastfeeding / Feeding volunteer Peer Support Training and spent time volunteering on the postnatal ward and in the community. I have also breastfed all my babies long term so understand fully the stresses, strains, and loveliness breastfeeding brings. You will see I have a huge interest in how spirituality can aid pregnancy and birth preparation, because it is what empowered me with my own births, and I see it help others too, and whilst I lean towards shamanic and nature pathway approaches, I have seen these deep connections throughout many religious paths, supporting different families with different religious beliefs.  I always come back to feeling that good birth preparation is doing anything positive that aids your trust and belief in your body and yourself.  As your doula I will support you and your family in doing what is right for you, during your pregnancy and birth,  to help enable you a positive birth experience, I will also provide important postnatal nurture and support. It will all depend on what you want and need. I do have a passion in using meditation, in pregnancy and labour to help you connect to your experience more, as I found it helped me during the births of my own children.   I find meditation can help you to let go and be in the zone allowing your body to do its job creating a more empowering experience. I also feel meditation in pregnancy helps you connect with your changing body and the new life growing within you, which I feel has a possible effect on trusting your body and baby when it comes to birth as well as being able to be in ‘the zone’ naturally to birth instinctively. Being a doula is an absolute honour. If you are interested in meeting up or have any questions I will look forward to meeting you.   Mentions Eva's website http://www.sacredmotherhoodjourneys.com   Facebook https://www.facebook.com/evabay.birthingdoula   Instgram: https://www.instagram.com/eva_shamanic_doula/   http://www.sacreddrumming.co.uk   OBOD www.druidry.org   Wicca witchfest.net   Children of Artemis   Pagan federation   About placenta remedies. www.placentaremediesnetwork.org/   To find out more about doula's www.doula.org.uk =============================================Contact Ruthie by email inbedwithadruid@gmail.comFollow  Ruthie on Facebook at http://facebook.com/InBedWithADruidor Instagram @InBedWithADruidChat to Ruthie on Twitter @InBedWithADruid
