It is important to know your teacher...
Hey lovely! I'm Hannah, most people call me Han. I am a HYPNOBIRTHING TEACHER, CURRENTLY TEACHING THE LITTLE BIRTH COMPANY COURSE AND RUNNING THEIR SOCIAL MEDIA, which I love! I am also a qualified midwife, working in our local maternity unit. My background is in mental health, specifically working with parents suffering mental health conditions relating to pregnancy and childbirth, including postnatal depression and birth trauma.

I am passionate about birth and that you can do IT, whatever your IT is, no matter how your baby gets out. I have seen far too many people petrified of the prospect of having a baby. It shouldn't be this way. I know why it happens, you aren't being effectively supported or educated. That can be changed. I am a firm believer that no matter what happens during your birth experience. It is all about your mindset. Knowledge is power and you are the boss. I hate the current state of the maternity system, trust me, I have to bite my tongue ALL the time when I see how women and birthing people are treated. But you aren't just a family going through the system, you are a family seeking a birth which changes your life.
TI'm gonna get you feeling excited for birth. What? Yes, birth can be incredible. I am so excited and privileged to support anyone who chooses to attend the courses. I have a real interest in providing you with some continuity throughout pregnancy, so once you sign up, I am here for the duration and beyond. Let's make you feel like a total boss!
i also realise that sometimes, birth doesn't go the way we intended it to, or we do not feel the way we thought we would. that is why i also offer a dedicated birth reflections service, perinatal depression and anxiety support and care after losing a baby, to allow your story to be heard and to take positive steps towards reducing birth trauma and perinatal mental health conditions. remember, it isn't always about What happened, it is about how it makes you feel.
Hope to speak to you soon,
