About my qualifications & experience
I was a midwife for many years within the NHS and am also a Hypnotherapist and have combined my love of the magical phase of childbirth with my Hypnotherapy skills.
I have been told that I am a lively, open, down to earth teacher and am extremely committed to enabling couples to feel that their baby's birthday was the best day of their lives!
Marie Mongan the originator of HypnoBirthing taught me her method and consequently I have taught hundreds of local couples to achieve a forfilling, calm and joyful birth.
However I now teaches The Wise Hyppo Birthing Programme which is relevant to UK midwifery practices.
I presented to the BSCAH (British Society for Clinical & Academic Hypnosis) National Conference and have been invited to teach at the BSCAH on Clinical Hypnosis for health care professionals at the Royal College of Obstetrics & Gynaecology in January 2009 to 2013 specialising in hypnosis for Infertility & Childbirth.
I was commissioned to write the Chapter on Hypnosis for Childbirth in an academic book on Hypnosis, published by Wiley, The Handbook of Contemporary Clinical Hypnosis: Theory and Practice, which is now available.

WHAT I DO AND WHAT TO EXPECT
Hypnobirthing teaches you along with your birth companion, the art and joy of experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner. you will learn how to call upon your own body's natural analgesia (pain relief) and thus reduce or even eliminate discomfort and the need for medication.
When a woman is properly prepared for childbirth, nature is free to function in the same well-designed manner that it does with all other creatures. You will be facinated as you view the films showing labouring mothers, awake, alert and in good humour as they experience the kind of gentle birth that you too can know when you are free of the Fear- Tension -Pain syndrome.
Hypnobirthing teaches you too release all prior programming about birth, how to trust your body and work with it, as well as how to free yourself of negative emotions that lead to fear casing pain and unyielding muscles.
Hypnobirthing will teach you the art of using your own natural birthing instincts. You will not be in a trance or sleep state. You will be aware and fully in control and profoundly relaxed.
One of the greatest benefit especially to birthing partners is that they are fully equipped to support a woman through her birthing experience, knowing exactly how & when to care for her as opposed to feeling like a spare part. Many couples feedback is that they felt that the close connection between them during their birth was the closest that they have ever felt.
The Wise Hippo Birthing Programme designed with British practices in mind, is as much a philosophy of birth as a technique for achieving a satisfying, safe, relaxing and stress free method of birthing.
