About

Nabila Fowles-Gutierrez & Sam Pope are the founders of Belly Mamas. 

BellyMamas provides enhanced support for women in pregnancy, birth and postnatal periods, especially women who have fear around birth or experienced any birth trauma. We understand how important it is to be heard, and how difficult it can be to have an empowering birth experience, particularly if you have had a challenging or traumatic birth before, or have fear surrounding birth. We have combined 30 years plus of experience between us in helping women have healing and empowering births. Including those with:

  • Traumatic birth experiences
  • High risk pregnancies (eg Gestational Diabetes, High Blood Pressure)
  • VBAC
  • Pre-existing medical conditions. 


We believe all women, regardless of their "risk factors" and background should be supported to have empowering births. 

Nabila Fowles-Gutierrez is a Registered Midwife with over 13 years experience of working in midwifery in the NHS and in various voluntary projects. Nabila specialises in helping women achieve an empowering birth experience regardless of age or risk factors. Nabila is a strong advocate for women to have confidence in their bodies and to have a beautiful and powerful transition into motherhood. 

Sam Pope is a doula and antenatal educator with over 28 years experience of helping women and their partners become skills, educated and confident in their journey to parenthood. Sam is a believer that women's bodies are truly amazing and that given the tools, knowledge and empowerment, they are able to become awesome mothers!
