Why I chose Hypnobirthing?
I first became interested in hypnobirthing when I started to research birth stories when I was expecting my first baby and found how positive hypnobirthing could be, much different to the scarefest I'd been treated to before this from everyone around me. I found a course and my husband (now a huge convert but was a massive sceptic) and I left feeling extremely confident about our birth. I found my passion, something I wanted others to feel, the 'I CAN DO THIS' moment.
I am a HUGE advocate for Hypnobirthing and want to enable parents to have the birth they want, being aware of their choices through delivering a full antenatal programme.
This led me to following my dreams to become a doula. My core values are that everyone is entitled to person centred care, immeasurable support and education that means they can feel in control throughout their perinatal experiences.
Doula assisted parents, who received continuous support 'were more likely to have spontaneous vaginal births and less likely to have any pain medication, epidurals, negative feelings about childbirth, vacuum or forceps-assisted births, and Cesareans' (Bohren et al. 2017) which is one of the many reasons I am so passionate about the care I provide to my clients and why my support is unequivocal.
