This time around, I felt empowered enough to make decisions that felt right for me when things did not quite go according to plan. Although on paper, this birth turned out to be more complicated than my first, I felt infinitely better about the experience. There was no sense of regret or lack of control, just a strong sense that what happened needed to happen and my husband and I made the decision that felt right for us. Once again, the techniques ensured I was calm and connected and helped tremendously through my surges, but this time I had the added benefit of feeling totally in control of how things progressed. This made all the difference and is for me, one of the most valuable aspects of the KG course.
Needless to say, I use what I learned during the births of my sons in my teaching along with my counselling experience (I have a Foundation certificate in Humanistic & Integrative counselling from BCPC). I am totally non-judgemental and non-prescriptive about how you choose to give birth. What matters to me is that you feel fully supported throughout your pregnancy and beyond which is why I also make myself available for as long as you need me after your baby is born. I truly am here for you.
I feel very privileged to be a Hypnobirthing teacher and share all I have learnt with parents to be. Hypnobirthing cannot promise the 'perfect' birth but I have experienced and seen the difference it makes. I am here to help you achieve the best birth you can as well as preparing you for any unexpected challenges that come your way. You will leave me feeling confident, calm and excited about the birth of your baby.
