An entrepreneur, mother, soulful empowerment & business mentor, traditional postpartum trainer, writer and philanthropist.

British, originally Moroccan, apparently 10% Sardinian and 14% Spanish, currently living in Dubai with my Syrian Bedouin husband and a citizen of the world; I am a mother of three who started my current business through passion and determination to encourage female empowerment, build a global sisterhood and support women like you dream, do and discover whatever youwant, because 'Impossible is Nothing' as Muhammad Ali always said!

In 2014, the birth of my first child brought about the birth of my new business. I was inspired to play a part in the birth world and went on a journey to set up the first (2015) and second (2016) International Natural Birth and Breastfeeding Conference in the UAE, which are the first events of their kind in the UAE and GCC; under the patronage of H.E. Sheikha Bodour Bint Sultan Al Qasimi. I did this all while getting pregnant 3 times, giving birth 3 times and having 3 small children.

With no previous 'experience' in the birth world, apart from giving birth and having a negative first experience, my passion was my cause to success. I connected with other birth workers, undertook numerous trainings, combined it with my experience in business and event organising; mixed in a lot of hard work, faith and hustle so that all our conferences, retreats and workshops were fully booked with over 900 paying clients and participants from Canada, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, the USA, Oman, Kuwait, the Netherlands, Bahrain, Lebanon, Egypt, Cyprus, Qatar, Uganda, Jordan, the UK, Bahrain, Australia, Malaysia and more!

I am also founder of the Tribal Sisterhood Retreat in Morocco, an ongoing student of wise traditional Moroccan midwives learning more about post-partum traditions and healing techniques and I am writing a book and developing an online certification training to keep this sacred knowledge alive.
