ALL ABOUT ANGELA
My name is Angela Chamberlain, and I am a natural birthkeeper and holistic therapist.
I worked as an NHS midwife for 12 years, during which time I won the Best Midwife Award at The Sun's Who Cares Wins ceremony (click here to read more).
But this year I made the decision to leave my role as I felt I no longer wanted to be part of a broken system.
Unfortunately the NHS has made birth a medical procedure and most women no longer feel in control of their birth choices or are even fully informed of the options available to them.
So I decided to create New Additions in order to meet my true calling - helping to facilitate physiological birth and supporting women and families in reclaiming their birth journey.
New Additions also allows me to offer holistic treatments to people, which is my other passion.
I began my own spiritual and healing journey about five years ago after suffering illness and a decline in my mental health.
I realised people don't just need pharmaceuticals to mask their symptoms - they need to establish the root cause of their problem and tap into the body's natural ability to heal itself.
My personal experience with Reiki, acupuncture and silent counselling (a form of rapid energy release healing) encouraged me to complete my holistic studies so that I could pass these fantastic modalities on to others to assist them with their own personal healing.
I now offer all my clients - not just pregnant and postnatal women but everyone - the same treatments that helped me.
