I am a Mighty Fine Mama
This is a family snapshot of me at my Aunt's house when I was pregnant with my third child; I love this particular photo because I remember feeling so happy and content at the time, I was looking forward to being a muma to another little life and I felt empowered by the hypnobirthing I was practicing. I remember feeling like a lioness, it felt like it shone out of me.
I love a strong cup of tea and a chat. I am a laid back, happy and a thoughtful individual. I can talk anything pregnancy, birth or baby related for far too long.
I became a hypnobirthing teacher after the birth of my third child because I had experienced a difficult journey with my first child and suffered severe anxiety with my second so I decided to used the hypnobirthing technique for my third, was blown away by the results, (got a little evangelical about it!) and decided to train as a teacher. My third birth helped to heal my previous birth trauma and I don't believe that would have been possible without learning hypnobirthing. I have loved every minute of imparting my knowledge around labour and birth that I have gained over the years.
On top of hypnobirthing I have added to my trade along the way with antenatal training, doula training (including placenta encapsulation) and Traumatic Birth Recovery training using the 3-Step Rewind Technique. I am also currently training as a clinical hypnotherapist so that I can help to heal women who have suffered traumas unrelated to birth but that might affect pregnancy, labour, birth and beyond.
