Hello there! I'm Lucy, a mum of two, and I'm thrilled to be a part of your journey into parenthood (congratulations, by the way!). I believe that becoming a parent is a deeply personal experience, and there's no one-size-fits-all approach. My mission is to empower you with the knowledge to make informed decisions, whether it's about your birthing experience, feeding choices, or anything else.

My courses have received multiple awards for a reason – they're comprehensive, accessible, and, above all, highly effective. If you have any specific questions or need guidance, don't hesitate to reach out to me at

And if you're ready to take the next step, I can't wait to meet you in 2024 as we embark on this incredible journey together.



Lucy and the Butterbean platform truly influenced my pregnancy journey and birthing experience in a wholly positive way. I was terrified about giving birth and felt quite overwhelmed by the amount of information out there, however Butterbean seemed to bring everything together in a way that felt digestible and, most importantly, doable. One of the biggest things for me was that following this my partner had a clear idea of his role during the birth which meant I was able to relax and concentrate on what I needed to prepare for. My birth didn't go quite as either of us expected, I had a placental abruption meaning that I had to be rushed out of the delivery room for a category 1 emergency C-section, my partner couldn't be with me and I was put under general anesthetic due to the urgency. However, throughout my labour we felt confident, we were able to ask for slight adjustments and my husband supported me with my breathing and helped me get in the zone. When I was being rushed out I used the hypnobirthing techniques to stay calm and focused so that I could try and reduce any additional stress on our baby at that critical point. Because of Lucy and Butterbean we were able to make the birth of our daughter a really positive one.


I couldn’t have come across butterbean at a better time. Having my first baby it gave me the confidence to feel more informed about my birth plan and choices. Lucy presents the information in a warm, unbiased and clear way.


We had a Butterbean day session of Hypnobirthing. We learned absolutely loads and feel so well informed about our choices. We did some really useful exercises and even started our birth plan. The website and Instagram page have given me so much insight and made me feel really well looked after. It's a lovely community. I love the midwife questions too!


Butterbean is such a wonderful and supportive resource. I’m 15 weeks pregnant and have used Butterbean for so
many things already: suggestions on positive birth books to read and really interesting and informative seminars on baby sleep. I’ve also used the midwife question time which is so helpful and reassuring. Lucy offers brilliant balanced and informative advice which comes from a depth of knowledge on a huge range of subjects - it’s lovely to know Lucy and Butterbean are there for any questions or worries I have during this time.
