Prior to commencing my midwifery training 6 years ago, I worked for a Perinatal Mental Health charity and it was at that point, I knew what I had to do. I currently work as a community midwife and have been teaching hypnobirthing for over 3 years.
After stepping into the world of midwifery, I realised that far too many people had a traumatising experience. Was it the care that was being provided? Was it a lack of knowledge and information? I figured, most probably a mixture of many things, was leading to a huge rate of mental health conditions in pregnancy and the postnatal period. It isn't good enough and I'd love to change the world, but instead, I realised that I could impact the experience of the people that I work with.
One by one, Reframing Birth classes are giving people information, confidence and empowerment to birth their babies. Unfortunately, people still need support and treatment for their mental health and that is why I have completed my Certificate in Perinatal Emotional Health & Wellbeing. I can now support people experiencing any mental health concerns related to pre-conception, pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period including trauma, depression, anxiety and loss. The aim is to feel more like you again, because I know first hand the effect that deteriorating mental wellbeing can have on your entire life.
Upon booking any of my sessions, you will receive my undivided support, care, expertise and attention, as well as a hell of a lot of laughs! We are all human and if you are looking for highly professional and strict, perhaps look elsewhere!
Remember, your happiness is not entirely defined by WHAT happens, it also involves HOW you are made to feel.
I hope to hear from you soon.
