MAKING BIRTH BETTER
We're on a break...
After giving birth to my third baby in late-December, I'm taking some time to enjoy my lovely new daughter (and adjust to life with three kiddos). I'm hoping to start teaching hypnobirthing courses again around June 2020.
In the meantime, please do take a look around this website to learn more about hypnobirthing and read some birth stories in the blog section. You can also follow my Instagram account; @mindfulbirthproject.
I am still responding to emails so do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions about pregnancy and birth. I am more than happy to pass on the details of other practitioners and to suggest books and online resources as you prepare for a positive birth.
I am a qualified hypnobirthing practitioner, trained in the RCM-accredited Marie Mongan method; the longest-running course offering training in using hypnosis in childbirth. I am also a passionate advocate for expectant parents. I believe that the key to having an empowering birth is to prepare and educate yourself. The more you know and understand how your body and your baby will work together, the more you can let go of fear and tension.
I will support you however you wish to give birth. Birth is birth. Whatever you opt for, the benefits of knowledge, relaxation and confidence will guarantee that your birth is filled with joy. I will give you tools and strategies to face any challenges or changes of plan with calmness and clarity. I will never tell you what to do but I will help you make the decisions that are right for you, your baby and your specific experience.
My approach is not rooted in a single ‘technique’. Alongside my training as a hypnobirthing instructor, I will also provide really practical, hands-on suggestions for labour positions, massage, communicating with health professionals, breastfeeding and looking after your newborn in those early days.
I live in London and I love working with local families. I teach in and around Camden; with a focus on Hampstead, West Hampstead and surrounding areas. I know these locations like the back of my hand so I can provide advice about hospitals, postnatal support and things to do with your new baby in north west London.
I love my job and I feel honoured to be able to support parents as they navigate the first of many decisions and choices they will make in how they nurture their family.
