"We are now doing relaxation together, but more importantly it has solidified us as a team and changed the dialogue between us. I'm closer to my husband in this process, I feel empowered and excited to go into labour, and I feel we have a tool kit of strategies to have a positive experience."
What is Hypnobirthing?
and will it work for me?
Hypnobirthing focuses on instilling confidence and calmness during pregnancy to prepare you and your partner for a positive birth experience. It is much more than just breathing techniques and mindfulness, it is an in-depth look into what our bodies are doing during labour and birth and the incredible science behind the journey to meeting your baby.
Hypnobirthing is a useful tool for all births - so whether you are planning a Homebirth or Abdominal Birth the techniques and education you will learn will create a positive and informed experience for you and your birth partner.
What is Birth and Breathe?
A little bit about me
I am a practising Midwifery Sister, Antenatal Class Teacher, Hypnobirthing Teacher and also trained in Aromatherapy in Childbirth and Biomechanics for Birth; based in South West London.
I think that I have the most privileged job in the world and I want to share my positive experiences and knowledge as a practising Midwife so that every mother-to-be can have the birth she wants.
Birth and Breathe stands out against other Hypnobirthing courses as it has been developed and is taught by an experienced Midwife with a passion for normality and women's choice. I am KGH trained (Royal College of Midwives accredited course) and I aim to promote a positive, peaceful and calm birth with a focus on instilling confidence and knowledge between couples as they embark on their journey as new parents. My goal is to educate and empower women in pregnancy with 3 main themes:
safe and healthy outcomes
a positive birth
an informed birth
Each and every birth is unique and special, and I would love to support you through your pregnancy to feel empowered during the birth of your baby.
