Empowering Mama's to Heal - Nourish & Flourish

Pregnancy &

The way we view birth and parenting presents a powerful invitation to grow exponentially -  but is often missed or avoided due to fear, not having the recourses or support to lean into these powerful transitions with love and grace. 

Accept the invitation

- Kelly Reid

Hi - I'm  Kelly. I am a loving mum to 6, ex-postnatal nurse (RN) for 16 years, breastfeeding expert and home-birthing mama.

I work with you to help you meet your unique needs. If your searching for guidance, tools or support to empower yourself and your whanau, I can help.

I have been privileged to be a part of hundreds of mama's journey's, and I love seeing mamas and families grow. 

How can I help you?

Depending on where your at in your journey I offer different options, please pick the one that feels best, and we can simply change if needed.

Birth Work - Nourish

I can provide personalised, evidence-based education that supports physiological birth, and connected parenting. You will learn body work techniques to connect to you body and baby so you labor and birth well, and tools from an expert!

Learn how to define your choices and communicate these effectively.

I provide in home postnatal support, and also run education workshops locally on Matresance (entering motherhood), Healing Birth Trauma and Holistic Birth planning (please contact directly)

Healing - Heal

Counselling is often a great first step. 

Many strong woman internalise birth trauma, including myself. If this is part of your story, the healing process begins with being listened to by a compassionate person, who validates your experience. Therapy helps by understanding birthing physiology and learning effective tools to move forward. Kelly's practice is trauma informed, gentle and always empowering to you.

Mama Coaching - Flourish

Looking for baby/parenting support?

Kelly has extensive experience - and is a fierce advocate of gentle parenting practices and evidence based choices.

You are the expert on your child - Your intuition and wisdom are powerful. Choosing to seek support allows you to develop your confidence and awareness in yourself and your parenting role, and form a plan to make meaningful changes.

I understand that the system in not one size fits all. My scope of practice, is coaching, which is non-medical. I am not working as a nurse or qualified counsellor in this capacity. If you or I think there might be a health concern - I'm happy to guide your journey through referral - I have loads of beautiful contacts, resources and tools to share openly as needed.

It is my privilege's to walk alongside many beautiful mama's as they heal themselves, achieve their goals and step into their power. I'm excited to meet you and be part of your mothering journey.

I have witnessed the power of connection to heal and light fires in strong women who go and change their communities where they find it lacking. They forge new paths for themselves and for their children to follow.

How getting support helps

When you get support to discover the root cause of underlying issues,your entire focus shifts. Feeling stuck? If you need a practical plan, we can start there, or if your ready to go deep, I can to support you to do the inner work to let you love more and feel lighter. As a mother, identifying needs to our super power, and we often prioritize our baby and family. Wisdom is understanding that leveling up your family’s story begins with you:

feeling your best, spiritually, emotionally, physically and mentally.


Just knowing I had a next session booked was what got me through some of my hardest time. Every mum needs a great friend like Kelly, it’s just she’s a super mum! Her empathy makes everything just feel like it falls into place.

It was at night felt undone as a woman. You helped me re-defined how I wanted life to look.

I waited for 4 years before I realised my birth story wasn't going to heal it's self. After one session I understood why things happened to me and that my body wasn't broken like I thought. It completely changed how i prepared for my new baby too.
