“I loved your talk! You addressed parenting in a way that I have never witnessed before. That was the first time I have ever considered how parenting will in turn impact the world. I left buzzing with all the words and love and wisdom. You are a fantastic speaker and doing so much good for everyone.”

How can changing the way that we approach parenting create a brighter future for all of us? I spoke on listening and relationships on the Future is Beautiful Podcast

And in this interview with Cary Grant here’s my personal story.

Active since 2003 as a mother of two,  parenting expert and activist, facilitator and Hand in Hand Parenting Instructor: Roma is lit up by listening, connection, intimacy and community. Her perspective is influenced by teacher Binnie Dansby, who fostered an appreciation of birth as our earliest imprint, from where all our patterns stem. Roma is a refreshingly human, forgiving and warm facilitator.

As well as running courses and workshops online and in the UK, Roma holds retreats on parenting, birth, listening, intimacy and creativity.

Roma blogs and writes for publications like JUNO Magazine, The Practicing Midwife, Elephant Journal, Rebelle Society and Huffington Post. She consults internationally (as well as for for the acclaimed Arrigo Programme) on parenting issues, birth preparation or resolution, and the impact of early trauma.

Roma is an accomplished speaker experienced in webinars, conferences, radio, TV and podcasts.
